I am still having some problems with my emotions. I tend to laugh alot shen I laugh, cry alot when I cry and I get really angry when I get angry. Every Dr. tells me it is a side effect of my stroke, but I have to learn to get control of it. For instance, when I laugh at work or with my wife, I laugh until I can hardly breathe. When I cry, I cry over simple things like movies that never used to make me cry (like Elf and the Princess Bride). When I deal with the kids, I catch myself getting short (it usually takes me by surprise...I think I am controlling things and my family will tell me to calm dow when I think I am). It is just something I will have to get used to, and try to recognize the signs of its oncoming and overcome it.
On a side note, I go to the Dr. on Tuesday to see a stroke specialist. There is a part of me that wants the Dr. to find nothing out of the ordinary and that she is as baffled as me. On the other hand there is a part of me that wants the Dr. to find something and tell me what the treatment is. That was I will no longer have to wonder what is wrong with me.
