One of those days!!!!

Most of my days are spent being sarcastic especially when dealing with people on a daily basis :) :) :)

Is there any other way to be ????? But it is tempting to just smile and be nice just to really freak people out.

Ah, people HATE it when I smile, they assume I'm up to something. I usually am.

Well I'm headed for the 'boring' bin. My new campaign is smiling at passers by in an effort to lift people's low spirits as they trundle around their days looking (often) suicidal.

It's amazing to see the responses. About 90% engage immediately and often turn around to reciprocate. It really works for me too ; I can feel it altering my brain chemistry quite significantly. :O xx

I am the smiley person most day, and when I've not got a smile or happy plesent face on that when people feek out, they think omg she's not herself be careful, it's very enjoyable as I can't always be the person that people expect to be happy and jolly all the time, I do have off days where I just want to be miserable and bitchy, I say go for it, it makes u feel much better.

I am definitely more impatient and intolerant than before the BI and often have to bite my tongue. Thing is, I don`t care, anyone who has faced a BI can be how they damn well want. Hope everyone out there has a positive day and anyone going for checks, scans or results - GOOD LUCK

Me as well have the same thoughts where I can be who I want and not be bothered if you like it or not.....:) :) :)

I've found this post really interesting. It's only reading this that I've realised that it is since my ABI that my previous sense of humour has gone off the chart! Instead of thinking of a funny retort 2 hours after, it's left my mouth before I notice - either a hilarious remark (😜) or a direct opinion that insults the person 😁

I see it as a double edged special power I've acquired!

I do it regular and find it quite entertaining:) :) In fact an old friend of mine only recently commented that I still have a razor sharp tongue...:) :)

My neurologist said that one side effect of an ABI (there are so many.....) was that I would be more impulsive in my speech and would sometimes be inappropriate or even rude. You seem to lose the filter which monitors what is acceptable and polite. I think I am more straightforward now, and swear more (ahem) but hey, if you don`t like it, YOU try having a BI. Thats my attitude, anyway, I intend to be outrageous in my remaining years :)

Hahhahaha I swear more as well especially when I'm driving and I've got some prick behind me flashing to get past you wouldn't believe some of the things that come flying out my mouth and to them when they eventually get past in my time when I want to let them.......lol:) :)

I am the nicest most pleasant, smiley interested person you could ever wish to meet. Thank God you can't see into my head and what I'm actually thinking. You would RUN! apparently we are all the same!

Now I feel a bit 'odd one out' ! I actually seem to have gained tolerance and patience from my experience on the whole. I seem to have a more relaxed attitude to both my own deficits and others and am interested in understanding the mechanism of others point of view, even if I find I can't agree at heart. I think it is good to be able to explore other angles and expand understanding.

I rarely feel stressed anymore, probably because I have accepted that my head/ body works at it's own pace now and nothing I can do alters that. I speak up more for the things I feel are unjust,in what I strive to be a calm explanatory way, so more confidence to voice my own opinion whereas before I would keep quiet.Other people's expectations that used to guilt me into overdoing things no longer have the same power over me so I control how much I do as favours and manage better. I have finally realised that it is not selfish to need some time for myself !

Always been upbeat,polite, smiled,used humour,these things have not changed.Yet I am more confident in talking to others, less shy , more open : ) I have missed out on so many interesting people through shyness in the past - time to catch up !

BI has left me so chilled, man ! I feel I am very lucky : ) x

Don't apologise for being the odd one out I generally have days where I'm more tolerant and patient as well.

In fact before I was not a very patient person with some people and situations so really I'm still the same in that way.....lol

I have actually learned to be more patient after seeing for example how rude some patients can be when I have been waiting for my appointment so I've learnt from that.

Also my job I'm dealing with people on a daily basis and can't be doing with shouting passengers who don't listen(I work in an airport) and who are rude that's something that really frustrates me:) :)

Like you I won't push myself nowdays and have no problem saying no if I can't do it....

See...

I have lost my understanding of sarcasm, I can be sarcastic but I don't understand other people's intentions! I have to have most things made literal to me.. Otherwise I'm left confused, angry, upset or all three! Lol..
