    Two years ago, I'm pretty sure I came down with COVID. This was right before COVID hit the U.S., before quarantine, and schools closing.

    Hello, My DPDR started like 6 years ago, I had a lot of panic attacks/anxiety. I was also very obsessed with getting better. And it made it more difficult to recover at that time. I've not been paying so much attention to it anymore like I used to do. Also I do not have any panic attacks...
