In brief: Hopeless despair

These kinds of feelings can be part of major depressive disorder, a condition which is certainly treatable with psychotherapy and antidepressant medications.
There are other possible causes also. Please see a psychiatrist for an evaluation and treatment. You may also need some lab studies to check for other medical conditions which can result in depressive feelings -- but these are easy to get.
