Patient : I have a question for a neurologist concerning a stroke I had. My so-called support system, mainly my fiancee, is giving me hell about how my personality and emotions and anger have changed post-stroke. She doesn't believe me, thinking that I am faking things and using the stroke as an excuse to be an asshole (pardon my language). I would like to know how many other people statistically have these issues and what I can do to prove to her that I can't help it. Please help me, this is tearing my family apart.
