Pseudobulbar Affect


It's been 11 years since I got it, and I'm only now recognizing that I do.

After a stroke or a minor stroke, Emotional Incontinence, or Pseudobulbar Affect, can occur. After a stroke, some or all of our emotions become more severe than before, known as Emotional Incontinence.

It is subject to alter over time, and who can also handle it according to what I'm learning. It's related to the nerve system. Any form of enthusiasm can trigger it.

It's a Very Uncontrollable Feeling

You may find yourself laughing or crying uncontrollably. Yes, I've done it. The worst-case scenario is losing control of your emotions. My emotions had always been entirely within my power, and I wouldn't even let myself weep in front of other people.

I'm now capable of crying at the drop of a hat. In addition, I can laugh hysterically at something that isn't amusing. I wouldn't say I like losing control of my emotions. This is awful for someone who was once utterly stoic.

I've Recognized that some of my feelings may impact others.

What's changed for me is that I've grown exceedingly apprehensive for no apparent reason in the last several years.

I've noticed that people are aware of this, and they may believe they are the cause or maybe perplexed. And I wouldn't say I like the thought that my anxieties are harming others.I wonder if telling someone that it could involve is the first step towards reducing it. Assure them that they are not the source of the problem.I feel like I've gone backward. As if I were a naive, jittery adolescent. Not in a charming manner, mind you. It can drive me insane to be so apprehensive all of the time.I don't want to take medication, yet it may be necessary. At least for the time being.Nervousness might be too distracting when there is too much going on.And when it comes in the way of what we care about, it has to be handled.What works for one person may not work for another. I'm still finding things out as I go.This is the region where I need to get started. Perhaps I should retrain my mind, and I'm not sure.

But I'm just weirded out.

It can also lead to us not always thinking most logically. It can also influence decision-making. And I recognize that it's happened to me.

Fortunately, it does not include rage in my case. And it's gotten a little better with the laughing and weeping, but it's still a little out of my control.

Anyone who has issues with this should look into it and see what solutions could work for them. 

That alone may make you feel like you have a smidgeon of control.

It might be unsettling to feel that you have little to no control over your emotions due to brain injury.
