Word High July 08 July 2016 silakbo



Today’s word is silakbo.  This means emotional outburst.  I am not sure if this is talking about emotional outbursts that I am prone to when I get irritated at people who refuse to do their jobs or if it means emotional outbursts like I have had since the strokes.

It seems that one effect of a stroke is bouts of crying for no particular reason.  I am also told that it is not unusual for someone who has had a stroke to laugh at very inappropriate things.  Something like someone telling you that their pet just died, which should elicit a sad response, would trigger a fit of uncontrollable laughing.  This is called pseudobulbar affect and it can also be manifested in fits of rage. 

Lately, I can talk about fond memories and start crying.  Often, my child-bride Suzanne will hear a cry in my voice and give me a hug.

What about you? Are you a victim of emotional outbursts?

This July 15th, in honor of our angel baby Dorian’s 23rd birthday in heaven, we will be giving all of our books away free.  Please download and read these books.  We have had to change the way we make money here since I suffered three strokes back in May.   We no longer sell Avon door-to door, but you can still buy it on our website at https://smcclendon.avonrepresentative.com.  You can also help us by purchasing things from our Etsy store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/StitchetyDoDa?ref=offsite_badges&utm_source=sellers&utm_medium=badges&utm_campaign=en_isell_1.

You can help us by downloading our books free.  Then, read them.  Every quarter, Amazon has a contest to determine which 100 authors in the United States have the most pages read.   If we make it into the top 100, we will share a part in a pool of money Amazon sets aside for the top 100 authors.


Please also give us feedback on our books and leave your honest review at Amazon.  We thank you.

I am not normally into creative writing but I am from a long line of story-tellers.  If you would like to see and example of my children's story, read the story I made up for my son Davey.
