In brief: Get evaluated

Severe feelings of worthlessness can be a sign of depression.
Please get evaluated by a psychiatrist/psychologist. During treatment session, try to work on what's triggering your feelings and what to do in crisis situations. Meanwhile, take an inventory of your positive self-characteristics; however small they might seem to you. Good luck!
