Feeling suddenly sad about doing some of my favorite activities?

I have some hobbies, but in the last few days, the thought of doing them brings me a melancholy, anxious feeling, and I really don't know why..

It's upsetting as they are really the only things able to calm me down most of the time.

I can't seem to identify what about doing those hobbies is making me feel upset and it's frustrating me.  :(

Any ideas?

What are the hobbies?  When that happens to me, it's usually classic depression.
I've been dealing with GAD and a big of depression where I can't fully enjoy and experience
things and people that have given me pleasure.

I've been taking klonopin for GAD and now I'm eager to work on revising my novel again.

That happens to me too. I just go ahead and do them anyways and I feel okay. For me, I've been anxious about being alive. It's like I'm super-aware that I'm living, and I can't take it. When I'm not super aware, I'm freaking out BECAUSE I was super aware, and that makes me anxious. It all goes away when I'm distracted though..

Distraction is life's best remedy.

Thanks for the responses.

I did go ahead and do them anyway, and I felt better and happier.. It's just really hard to relax sometimes and let in the part of you that can have fun when you're feeling this way..  ::)

I suppose it is just the depression, but it's still jarring and upsetting having these stupid attacks.  :fragend005:
