In brief: Are you detached?

In some sense, you are detached from reality, despite the paradox that the internet exists as part of your larger, more tangible reality.
Perhaps your feeling of detachment is your sense that you are disconnecting from people, work, family, and responsibilities, and this is making you anxious? It would be interesting to know if you feel "detachment" in other venues . .
