Service dog

I am throwing around the idea of getting a service dog. It would be half for hearing and half for psychiatric stuff. Does anyone on here use a service dog and has it helped you? I want to be sure I want one if I'm going to shell out the money and time to train.
 
First - you need to ask yourself - do you even like dogs? Do you want that kind of responsibility? It's not just a tool. It will be like
having a child. It's not just something you "shell money out for." It is a 24/7 job, AND relationship, for you.

Which I understand, I am mentally ready for a dog, but can't decide if I want a service dog yet.
