How are anxious people different?

Before and after the SSRI

It was so easy for me to feel emotions, I used to be restless all the time. At 8 p.m. I loved to dance, I loved to scatter my attention: To listen to a podcast while playing a game, etc. After I took an SSRI, I was comfortable with silence. I no longer needed to hear someone talking in the form of podcast, video, or to learn anything. I was comfortable to simply play a game, to let silence flow with people, because the silence is important. But I know, for a fact, that before, the silence used to bug me, and I had to learn something, share something, from the media or the people I am with.
