I’m very sorry you are feeling so hopeless. It sounds terrible. Please make an appointment with a mental health counselor immediately. There is no reason to continue feeling this way. Help is available but you have to get yourself to a helper. As much as I’d like to ease your pain, all I can do in this format is offer you sympathy and prod you to take care of yourself by getting competent help.

I wish you well.
