Post-VR Sadness: Is Virtual Reality Dissociating People From Reality?

I share this with some uneasiness, because it reminds me of all the fear and alarmism around the internet and "virtual relationships". And because this time, unlike with the internet, I am watching this mainly from the outside. I have very limited VR experience. I loved it. But I can already feel that I could get completely sucked up in it. 

I have already felt touches of this "post-something sadness". After spending a whole week-end binge-watching my favorite TV series. After spending a day role-playing. After too much reading immersed in a fantasy world.

I am looking forward to more experiences with VR, but I can't hide that I'm a little worried about how my brain will react.
