did you have a question? You have what's called aphasia. Difficulty processing language is normal after you have a stroke. I am providing you a link to the national aphasia association. I think it's normal to cuss more because it's an "automated" word or words which you hear a lot and don't have to think about a lot to come up with. You need therapy. Please discuss this with your doctor. I wish you a speedy recovery. http://www.aphasia.org/
