Are you getting help for your depression?  I know what that is like and one of the big symptoms is when you no longer take interest in things you used to enjoy.  I knew it was time to get help when I found myself no longer wanting to read or craft.  I was unemployed at the time but I was able to find a wonderful counselor who charged on a sliding scale basis.  Don't be afraid to ask for help.  This is not something you can control. 

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

Mishti, yeah I know what you mean, I mean its logical that other people are experiencing the same things, but its hard to actually believe it until you see it.  *huggles*

marypoppins (I LOVE that movie!), I saw a counselor about 10ish year ago whe I was a teen.  It wasn't a very good experience (not -bad-, just not good).  So I'm sort of turned off by it now :-/ good luck with yours... I hope its one that you can trust.

Sorry you're not feeling too well. Sad

But I really can't imagine giving up crafting. It's therapy, it's fun, it's addiction. But do what's best for you. Kiss

... I saw a counselor about 10ish year ago whe I was a teen.  It wasn't a very good experience (not -bad-, just not good).  So I'm sort of turned off by it now :-/ ...

I had some BAD experiences with counsellors when I was a teenager, WitchCat. Really horrible, using me to spy on my friends telling me to get over myself and I was wasting their time kind of experiences.

I think marypoppins is right though, and I would strongly suggest you try again - getting rid of your stuff and not liking to craft is definitely ringing warning bells for me.
I had similar feelings at the end of last year, and was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Since getting treatment, things aren't suddenly peachykeen in my life, but they are SO much better, I can't believe I honestly felt like that!
If you're just more interested in other stuff, or are just over the yarn crafting for now, it's prolly a whole different kettle of fish but please think about it, and consider getting help if you're seriously unhappy.
