Your case is what's called an anomaly, one out of the ordinary. Congratulations. But yours is an atypical case, one that does not compare to the norm, and the fact that you are "doing just fine" does not necessarily mean that anyone else would or could also be "doing just fine" without a cell phone. For you to understand this requires precisely the type of compassion, perhaps, that this article addresses. And perhaps the author was going out of her way (I wouldn't) to be gentle with you in this regard.
