What “weird” little things have you noticed post stroke?

• I AM FREEZING ONCE IT HITS 70 DEGREES–I WILL HAVE LONG SLEEVES, WHEN PEOPLE ARE DRESSING 4 SUMMER HERE. PEOPLE LEAVE THIS STATE THE MONTH OF JULY, CUZ ITS TOO HOT–LIKE 112 DEGREES. I LIKE IT!
• MY TEMPER FLARES REAL EASY, & WHILE I WAS ANXIOUS BEFORE, NOW IT’S AWFUL & I ALSO DON’T HAVE THE SAME HANDLE ON STRESS (THX GOODNESS MY HUSBAND IS A THERAPIST!)
• I LAUGH REALLY BAD AT A BURP OR A FART–PRE-STROKE, I WAS DISGUSTED BY THEM!
• I FEEL FANTOM BUGS OCCASIONALLY CRAWLING ON MY PARALYZED LIMBS–SOMETIMES THERE REALLY ARE BUGS, BUT USUALLY NOT!
• MY ATTENTION SPAN SEEMS TO WANDER ALSO….SO I TAKE RITALIN, & I UNDERTAND MORE & DO BETTER AT THERAPY.
• I CAN’T COUGH ON COMMAND… MY BODY JUST AUTOMATICALLY DOES IT.
• I’LL ALSO GET A WHOLE BODY SHIVER THAT MAKES ME TWITCH,
• I TAKE THESE OCCASIONAL BIG BREATHS THAT SEEM LIKE A SIGH
