Our expert says:
Sounds unpleasant - and not specifically depressed or anxious. Some people decribe such sensations in relation to using these drugs - but if you didn't experience this in your early days on these meds, they're not likely to start causing such side-effects now.
Some people find that when encountering seriously stressful circumstances, as apparently you are, they may "switch of" / dissociate into an unreal, disconnected state of the sort you describe. This is not specifically harmful though some of us would indeed find it unpleasant.
This is one reason why I would not try to treat a condition like yours with medications alone, and CBT style counselling could help you learn how to avoid such extremes of stress or disconnectedness, and how to re-connect yourself when needed. As well as how to handle depression and anxiety when they arise
