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.

Yes very often. It relieves depression for me to be impulsive and go buy something new or take up a new hobby or get a new crazy haircut. But sometimes you are just treating symptoms and the condition stays the same, so soon enough the affect will wear off.

My room is currently filled with like 10 plants. I got them all at once when I was really interested in gardening for some random reason. Now they have grown up and takes me tremendous effort to water lol. But on a good note, certain things are healthy (like taking care of plants or nourishing a new hobby) and are definitely worth the effort to keep up. So many unhealthy ways of living are just bad habits that we need to break ourselves of.
