Being Depersonalized while having a flu

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.
