From Extrovert to Introvert

A few months ago,  say November,  anyone who knows me would have classified me as an extrovert… Since my depression and anxiety have hit I am very much the opposite… 

So what has changed,  other than brain chemistry? From personal insight I would say that I’ve put up a wall partly for personal protection and to keep people away and partly because I don’t
seem to have the same energy (ability,  compassion,  patience… )  to deal with other people…

In some ways I am numb at times…

Other times my internal pain is already overwhelming enough…  And other times I simply don’t care or don’t care to notice… 

Either way,  the paradigm has shifted… 
I’m just wondering if others have noticed anything similar and can provide some personal introspective comments…
