Okay so me and my bf had a big argument yesterday on the phone about an issue i had with him and he ended up getting super upset (he has anxiety and severe depression) I ended up being right and i was trying to discuss the whole situation so we can learn from it but he ended up just blaming himself harshly and had a good crying session (don't know if it was a panic attack but it did sound like it) i tried calming him down and he ended up going to sleep for 5 or 6 minutes, after that he woke up not knowing anything or even getting into a call with me in the first place (this thing happened twice during our relationship and it's recent) and he went on telling me about his day and having laughs like nothing happened (he gave me really good details about his day as well which made me think he was lying) ... i was really weirded out so i went along with it because i don't know if that would make him feel even worse if he knew what happened or if some of his therapy sessions made him do that, whats the issue here?? I want to discuss the problem because it's been hurting me and i can't just take it over and over again and not get anything solved.

Can't say for sure, but in times of high stress such as panic attacks and anxiety you can have memory loss.

Here is some information on it for you

I would say this, it is either anxiety/depression related as stated above or there are deeper issues that need to be addressed. I, personally, have never experienced this with a significant other, however, I know in times of high stress I tend to shift my focus on something else. It helps to relieve any residual feelings that may lurk. Often times I have found when confrontation arises its fight or flight. Perhaps, this is his for form of flight? Strange behavior nonetheless.
