If you don't have a pet, consider getting one.

Studies show that pets help emotional stability and longevity. The pet doesn't have to be a dog or a cat. 

If you get a pet:

  • Learn how to live with it safely both for you and your pet.
  • Make arrangements to have it cared for in case you can't either temporarily or permanently. 
  • Plan what happens in case you die.

If you live in an apartment where the landlord prohibits pets, you may be entitled to an exception if your doctor recommends one. The longer you are post treatment, the harder it is to justify a pet on this basis, but it's worth the try.
