I had a pretty nasty cold the last couple days and I don't think it's going to get better until next week.

In this time my DPDR has been far worse, the worst it has been besides the first few days which were absolute hell. I have terrible anxiety, terrible existential thoughts. I can barely sleep, eat, watch TV. Being alone makes me go crazy, thankfully I have some family members around and I try to call a friend when it gets too much.

Has anyone had a cold/been sick while having DPDR and did you think it made it worse?

I've never felt sick .. I never have any headaches etc since I am in this numb hypo arousal state. Some ppl wish they had this, I wish I could just feel anything...
I get what you mean....although I have to say I still do not have emotions. Since my DP started a bit over a month ago I feel very numb as well, however I became sick, as in just having physical symptoms of a cold.

I have had the flu for about a week now bed ridden with bad temperature sore throat and got put on antibiotics only about 3 days ago did I feel some disconnectioness hoping it wasn’t DP coming back ( last time I had it was 2-3years ago ) I’m now still not feeling myself and thinking it could be DP... has anyone else had this come on before from being really sick? What helped them? Does it pass after the flu goes? I can’t go through it again I missed a huge part of my life from it please any advice!
