Could this be delirium?

Lately I have been having strange symptoms. I would suddenly have a strong memory of another place and time and regardless of where I am I will act and talk like I am in the place that I am thinking of. After about 10 minutes or so I will snap back into reality and not remember anything that I have just said and done. For instance yesterday I was at the supermarket checkout with my 2 children and suddenly a memory came to mind. When I snapped out of it I was leaving the store and being approached by my mother who my 9 year old daughter had called while I was in this episode. My daughter told me that I was taking my shoes off and asking her was she ready to leave and to hurry up and get ready. When the cashier would speak to me I would look at her as if I did not see her and not respond to anything that she would say. I was thinking that this may some type of symptom of delirium because I was checked for a siezure disorder in the past and that medicine failed to help me one bit. If anyone have any clue what this might be please get back to me. It would be greatly appreciated.
