No Tears Since My Stroke....Is This Normal?

I had a Hemmoraghic Brain Stem stroke June 7 2011.  I was in CCU for 6 days and have been followed by a Neurologic faithfully since.  I have had several annoying physical symptoms such as vertigo, nausea, double vision, and the worst ongoing migraines that plague me on a daily basis but the one that gets to me is that I have not shed a tear since the stroke.  I'm not sure if the stroke is the cause of me not crying or if it is a psychological issue related to a personal crisis that I have been dealing with since a year earlier.  My brother did something really bad (REALLY BAD) and I have been trying to come to terms with since then.  I cried the day I got the news, but no tears since then.  Could my stroke be playing a role in me not crying?  Any help you could give me would be GREATLY appreciated.

THANK YOU!!!
