I am just a little curious wondering if it is your meds causing this. I had to swap and change meds a lot for me to get my motivation going. Some meds helped a little too much.

I found that finding the right combination. Of drugs and doing little jobs once a day starts to rebuild your motivation.

It is so so easy to sink to a low motivised state especially with mental illness.

Is there anything you still enjoy doing?

Is there anywhere you could visit as a change of scenery for a few hours can give you a little motivation boost.

Right now my motivation levels are running at about 35 percent and falling because I have been in the house all week.

Next week I am going to force myself to do some form of task to motivate me

The thing is to set yourself small targets that will be over in 15 minutes. It could be something like dusting or loading the washer or walking round the garden. Then gradually increase these till you feel,as tho you have a bit more energy. Sitting down and doing nothing will only make you more tired.
