Hi Gruff here, this is my 1st post, I had a minor stroke in March this year and in a lot of ways I feel like a bit of a fraud posting here, I only have some balance issues, a slight weakness on my left side and I struggle to find words sometimes, so all in all I think I got of lightly. My wife says I have changed, that I am not as loving or compassionate as I used to be and more withdrawn.
I noticed myself that I have to force myself to start conversations however if someone else starts I happily respond. Another thing I occasionally swing from very emotional to quite aggressive and am not aware of this until someone points this out.
It is having an impact on my relationship with my wife of 35 years as she is as she says " Fed Up" and would like the old me back. Has anyone else any experience of any of this or any suggestions or advice that may help?
