I think I am expereincing situational depression. Its been 1.5 years since I had surgery and I have still not regained full use of my arm and the chronic pain is becoming exhausting to me.I am so sad over everything I no longer can do. I am reminded of it everyday when I try to work, do housework etc. I try to remain upbeat to everyone and few people beside my family know how disabled I am.
I know I shouldn't feel this way but I am embarrased to bring it up to the Dr because I don't want to come off as a complainer. I also don't want anymore drugs to put more weight on. I have gained 15 pounds with Lyrica. I also don't want another pill to make me feel more like a zombie.
I'm not sure what to do because I know I will start crying if I try and talk about it.
