Last winter-Maca's phone beeping was enough to send me into a full-scale, medication required, anxiety attack (including asthma attack).
It was a nightmare.
We created agreements that made certain areas of the house no-cell and time frames (our dates) no cell. That made a huge huge difference. Because if his phone was going to be in use-but I wasn't up to it-I could go to a "no cell" room and get away from it. Also-I didn't have to worry about the phone going off in bed, in the shower, on our date etc and ruining a bonding opportunity.
