Pat involuntarily and regularly swears following her stroke (NCJ Media)
A grandmother who once hated the idea of swearing now turns the air blue after a stroke left her unable to control her potty mouth.
Pat Preston, 65, now has a mouth like a sailor following her stroke and has even called her grandchildren ‘little b******s’ when they were playing up.
The grandmother from Gateshead says her new-found profanity laden speech is completely involuntary.
‘Before I had a stroke I would still get annoyed at things but I could control my upset, however now I just can’t help it,’ she said.
The retired bank worker says her swearing particularly irks her husband, as he used to be a head teacher and therefore has an obvious aversion to swearing.
She has introduced a swear box since her stroke last January in an attempt to train her brain, and is also receiving help from psychologists.
