Emotional After Seizure?

Emotional After Seizure?

Does anyone feel really emotional or a change in their emotions after their seizure or for the next day or so?
I find I can feel quite down and sad, sometimes near crying or I cry a little. Not crying because I can't cope or that I'm upset about having a seizure, just more that I feel really down. In the past I've also felt a little angry or moody after a seizure as well.
Just wondering if this is normal and if anyone else has experienced this?
I have grand mal/tonic clonic seizures.

Yes just about every time. At first it was fear then anger but now yes just depresses me for a day or so. I guess I'm always hoping it won't happen again

Yes, I'm like that too. I'm already an emotional person but I feel bipolar for a second because one minute I'm sad then the next I'm like whatever then I get mad. For no specific reason my mood swings just go crazy after my seizures. For me, They usually go away after 2 days.

After I have status and end up in the hospital after having dozens of seizures and grandmals, I can't stop crying. Like no matter how hard I try the tears keep coming. It takes hrs for it to stop
