I'm sorry to hear you're in a dark spot. I've battled existential depression from time to time-- and at 42, it still rears its ugly head, now and then. Most of the "cure" is in educating yourself and understanding why you feel the way you do-- I found Irvin Yalom's writings very helpful.

If you seek professional help, make sure you find a therapist well versed in dealing with existential depression.
