Do you ever feel like you don't want anything that you own in your life anymore? Not that any of them hold anything traumatic for you or bad memories, but more of just "why do I even need/have this?". I realize that I save things all the time and start small collections of things that I think look neat, but somehow they lose all value once I have them for a short period of time. Have you ever made a list just to look back on it a week later to think "what was I thinking?". Maybe nothing suits you, it just doesn't make sense or it's just all pipe dreams.

I'm just wondering if this is a normal thing for people with dysthymia or not.

I think that buying pretty things and then losing interest in them is a normal thing for all people, and not just dysthymics. The appeal of material objects changes as people change. Children become fascinated by cute toys, but when they grow older, they lose interest in them. This is normal.
