How I "fixed" my passionless bedroom using an SSRI

When I went on SSRI’s for anxiety as well as lowering my libido back in 2016, I couldn’t read dramatic books anymore because I didn’t have an emotional connection to them. There was certainly no passion. I didn’t get a spike of enjoyment playing video games, my competitive desire in the gym disappeared. The sex issue was resolved (libido and genital numbness), but I stopped them because my anxiety was replaced by general apathy, including towards my wife. There were a few humorous moments when she tried to play her typical games of criticism and I found it odd that I was neither angry nor sad. I simply nodded and made a sandwich. But in general it made me a shell.

Of course these are my personal experiences, I speak for no one but myself.
