Sentence: Jenny is connected to her BFF by the ear. If her cell isn’t stuck to the side of her face, it’s only because she is texting instead. Technology has been a godsend for them. It also has given her a bad case of disconnectophobia. The mere thought of a tech failure can make her break out in a cold sweat.

Etymology: disconnect (break the connection of or between) + phobia (an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something)
