Is it possible that my website was loading faster before cloudflare?

I have a Wordpress site and started using cloudflare’s free CDN to ensure better performance but I feel like it has gotten worse since connecting to the CDN.

The website receives gets a 97% Page Speed Score and an 88% YSlow score. I’ve optimized images, minified code, leveraged browser caching, etc. To me, it seems like the page takes a long time to request and then loads very quickly after that phase.

That’s something to quantify using a tool like WebPageTest, take a look here for some ideas:
