With the so called experts you have to watch what you say to them at times. The fact that you mentioned you have no desire to do anything at all is one of the first signs of depression that they look for. Now what could be happening, just my own guess, is that your anxiety is making you feel down. It is stopping you from doing things. Things you would love to do. If the anxiety lifted, so would your whole mood. A lot of Shrinks think that anxiety and depression go hand in hand. That you can't have one without the other. But I seriously believe that anxiety can make you feel down. Not because you are depressed. Because you really want to do so much with your life. But your anxiety symptoms are stopping you. So it can come across as similar to depression. Once they hear certain things been mentioned to them they jump straight away to depression. Symptoms of anxiety and depression can overlap each other as well. It is your body and your mind. You are the only one who really knows if you are depressed or not. If you don't think you are then stick to your guns.
Derealization is a spaced out kind of feeling. Dream like. It can make you feel at a distance from things. Some times as if nothing is real. Can be frightening to some people. But it tends to just vanish over time. It is another very common symptom of anxiety.
