A disorder in which the victim has an intense and irrational fear that something is due today despite knowing that the semester evidently ended more than 24 hours ago. It is caused by residual anxiety from finals week. Found in college students, both male and female, but mostly seniors with complex majors and/or multiple minors. The best course of treatment is a combination of alcohol of varying types and 4-5 weeks of non-mentally stimulating activities i.e. Netflix.
Although I turned in every last assignment and my grades are already posted, I can't help but feel like I have something due today. I must have Phantom Homework Syndrome.
