Tranxiety

Sentence: Cella was experiencing it again. That feeling of tranxiety that she only felt while travelling on a train and losing her cell connection. Even if it was only momentarily, she was so addicted to her connections, that being without them, even temporarily, made her feel like a druggie without a fix. The truly sad part was that she was only calling the Weather station to find out the local temperature. It was seriously time for Cella to talk to her tranxichologist about her dependency. What the heck did people do before the onslaught of mobile communications???

Etymology: Transit/transport (to make a passage or journey from one place to another/a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion;move something or somebody around; usually over long distances)& Anxiety ( a vague unpleasant emotion that is experienced in anticipation of some (usually ill-defined) misfortune;a relatively permanent state of anxiety occurring in a variety of mental disorders)
