In 1998 I had heart by-pass surgery with complications but eventually recovered. & noticed just a very slight change in my personality., It seemed easier to lose my temper. Then on Feb.23, 2007 I suffered massive heart attack..Developed into heart failure and eventually had valve replacement and spent 30 days in the hospital.
Since this last episode of health problems I find personality wise to be a different person. My poor husband is shocked at different I am and frankly so am I. Very quick to lose my temper over almost anything & seem to be disgusted and frustrated with everything. Not enjoying life and find everything to be a total hassle.
Does this sound like depression? I think this is the first time "depression" has entered my mind..I just feel like a different person (and don't like who I've become) And I'm not sure why I seem to be so nasty about everything.......it's as if nothing goes right; Or 'll be working on the computer and it will "freeze up" or knock me off-line and if someone were listening they would think it was the end of the world just by my total "screaming and yelling" This just isn't me..
It dawned on me tonight that i dont seem to have control over this loss of control so to speak and just lose it and spew out some choice words which surprise even my husband. He said it is like living with a different person and we have been married 51 years!
Any thoughts?? Thanks for any input.
