Depression from increase in Medication

I am suffering from major depression from the increase in this Lyrica. I hope it will go away with time. I've again, been in bed all day reading/sleeping. I originally wanted to go outside and take some pictures but it's overcast here and I just lacked the motivation. I feel just as depressed if not more so than I was before the reconstuction. It helpes to talk to others who are going through the same thing but I don't know of anyone who is going through the same thing, I have a therapist and a psychiatrist that I've been working with for 4 years. The problem with me is that I can't take any antidepressants because they bother my new bladder. They cause an increase in phantom urgency. So I am kind of stuck as to what to do about the depression but to just talk about it with friends and family. The next time I see my Pain Management Specialist, I will tell her what is happening and see if there is anything we can do about it at her office. Maybe it's something I will have to live with if it ends up helping me in the long run.

I will try to list a few positives to my day: Early this morning, I drove my car, I went to the drug store, I bought a disposable digital camera.
