My better half had two strokes in the past month. July 1st and July 25th. Both in the same spot, on the cerebral cortex, it is affecting his motor controls, his strenght is gone and he is having trouble swallowing.
I have been noticing personality changes, like being quick to fly off the handle and to escalate the fight. And then it is over and he acts like nothing happens.
Is this normal in some stroke patients?
Is it normal for me to grieve the life I used to have and the man I used to love, because he is nothing like him personality wise.
I am so overwhelmed with everything but these things bother me the most.
