I know both feelings for sure (appreciating quiet but also dreading it). Sometimes, it helps to take the quiet time but add something to it that can be soothing, like music or coloring or painting, or reading or something. My therapist told me he once spent a really hard weekend doing nothing but watching American Idol reruns, lol. It helped me feel a little better, because whatever mindless thing I'd done was slightly better than that. Hope you can find some comfort. There are some meditations I've tried that can help "fill" quiet times & make them feel more peaceful again, if that might help?

@MoonDanc3r sure feel free to inbox me id love to hear about meditation exercises i an trying to do more of that I also think when I do more self care it helps more taking care of me. I think most of us betrayed have SUPER big hearts and even though we got hurt we STILL take care of our partners /families in some way or another often compromising our own needs. My self time quiet time was my self care now I need to learn new ways and I actually went to a quick massage parlor during lunch this week n felt great! I need more self care and how to balance needs of my wife family its not easy finding that balance
