5 monthd ive been feeling like this
I have experienced several of these things... I was on Klonepin for several weeks and I honestly have no memory of those weeks! It was horrible!!! Just as you describe it felt as if I were in a dream... my husband got so worried I wasn't myself, he called my Dr. and she immediately took me off of it. I was taking it for my panic attacks, so she put me on Ativan and other meds, since I'm Bipolar.
The part were you feel disconnected, I believe is called "dissociation." I've done it since the age of 13 or so... (I'm now 47) It's when you are going through a painful experience or memory and you mentally can't take it-so I've been told it's" an "auto-defense mechanism" As a kid, it was kind of fun, to have these outer body experiences. Now, not so much. If you are interested in knowing how I cope with this, please request me as your friend, and I can go into more detail. Although I still have these experiences, as an Adult, I mainly become very cold with everyone around and feel extremely "detached" from everything/everyone and it's apparently for the same reason.
Hang in there, and know you are not alone :)
