You sound like a 5 to me, or maybe a 4. What type are you?
Anyways, I have felt like this often enough in my life, and it is definitely worse in some ways as I get older (33) because there is the starkness of the passage of time, the realization that things will just keep getting worse if I keep living the same way.
The key is to change your life I think. At least that's what I'm trying to do. There is no meaning unless I make it. I used to look for meaning outside of myself and grew despondent when I didn't find it.
You have to make meaning. What do you like? People, interaction? I am a hermit, but I like people. Somehow I have to find a way to interact. I feel most alive when I'm working on an invention or trying to create something. I know you have a special talent that may sometimes seem trite or pointless, but I believe that you will ultimately find that it can give you meaning.
Good luck. Hang in there; since this is all there is, might as well make the best of it while you can.
