With seperation anxiety it could be anxiety for being away from you parents, sleeping at places without your parents ect. I had seperation anxiety as a child and there are some research pointing towards the risk of developing panic anxiety is 3.times higher if one had separation anxiety as a child. Panic anxiety has been seen as a component in development depersonalization.

Yes, it's known that separation anxiety, also attachment disorder which can be related, can be a precursor to later mental health problems like panic disorders and dissociation.

I certainly had that, as my mum was unhappy and distant as she was unwell and the marriage bad, and once when I was about eight she told me she and dad might divorce which gave me this desolate feeling. So I always had that anxiety as far back as I can remember.
