Brain lock-up

I know what the answer will be, most likely, but I figured I'd post here in an attempt to at least clarify some of this for myself. I've been having these periods lately where I will feel normal, at least to myself, but my spouse will tell me that I'm not thinking straight, or I will respond to her in ways that are calculated to be hurtful, or a whole host of other things. She says also that at certain times my gaze will lose focus and I'll look catatonic.

I do know that sometimes when I am under stress I will get sort of lost in my own head, unable to make a decision about what to say and it will take tremendous effort to speak. I'm sure this has to do with my mounting issues with anxiety, yet, how do I snap out of it? Deciding not to do it again doesn't seem to help.
