I have been having the feeling I am out of body or in a dream, I can't remember words and thoughts, and having conversations with myself. I went to a class the other day and felt like I couldn't respond to anything. I am also paranoid.

Good Evening,

 

You're describing depersonalization. This occurs during extreme periods of stress. You may want to reduce your stress and allocate some time to self care.

 

In regard to the paranoia, there is anti psychotic medication that can help with that. People who are severely depressed may experience a psychotic break down.
