    why do i experience dissociation when i feel sick to my stomach?
    does anyone else experience it when they are sick or feel sick?

    its like im losing touch with reality and whats happening feels like it isn't happening.

    Yes, I feel like that also when sick - although I'm not usually sick to my stomach.

    Illness in general does kind of slow down or put on hold our skill sets for dealing with the usual things - we do lose touch with reality a little but as long as its just losing touch a little and not losing touch a lot - then the feeling will pass after some rest, plenty of fluids and decent food.

    Take some soup if you have not eaten.

    A breath of fresh air also - 15 min walk around the block or something.

    Reality is still here - so don't worry about that.
