    i had been very lazy lately.

    I don't eat breakfast and lunch. Even I felt hungry, I just stayed in bed.

    I skipped classes.

    I'm living alone, so my apartment is a huge mess.

    The only thing that gets me out of bed is seeing my bf.

    Anyway, I need another reason to be motivated to live life...

    Do you think getting a pet like a dog will help me recover from this?

    Or other strategies? I just lack motivation right now

    Hey Chalcie, this sounds like symptoms of depression, have you been diagnosed with it? If not I'd see a doctor or therapist, they can offer therapy or medication. Yes, dogs are great therapy, I have one and she's been a lifesaver for me.

    Yes, a pet might be a good idea.
    What about setting rewards for yourself, like maybe get yourself a treat for getting out of the house.

    I struggle in this area too ''things to live for''. I think getting a dog or cat can hold too much responsibility at first when you don't know if you will be able to look after them. Try booking concert tickets or book a massage (I did this last week) or get a a new hair style or reward yourself for doing exercise or reward yourself for doing the cleaning? Not saying it will change your life but gradual adjustents will strengthen your over all outlook on life :)

    Some of my friends thinks I'm depressed. How much usually does it cost to get therapy?
    Thank you for your response.

    It depends where you are and what services are available in your area.
