I feel like I have been so nasty to my husband and family. I can tell my husband is hurt/mad. I went for a follow up yesterday and asked my doctor about it. My husband was with me. My doctor said it is very common for people to have this happen. I hope this helps my husband to see why I do it, not that that is an excuse. I can't help it. I feel like I just want to scream to the top of my lungs. I feel like some evil person has crawled inside me. My AVM is in my left frontal lobe. I know that is where your emotions/feelings are located, but I feel guilty after I feel like I have been rude or nasty to someone. Anyone else feel like that out there?
Hi Melissa. Anger is very common with frontal lobe injuries. The lobes act as a filter and that has been damaged. You might find this interesting…,http://www.givebackla.com/?p=1122

I can relate to your problem. I get that way too. It isn't till a few hours later that I realize what I said or how I said something to someone. I wish there was some way I could have better control over my emotions -- like I use to.
