I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. I suffered depression years ago when I lost my beloved. I felt the same, worthless, void, empty, and guilty some time. My doctor advised me painting, drawing, writing, music, going on walks etc. I didn't try because everything was still meaningless for me. Most of the time I tried to sleep, but to sleep was always hard. I had to do something to kill time, and I chose reading. I felt lost in the words and detached from my own feelings when I read. And, the more I read, the more I came to know about myself. I came to accept that I got to live, even if it seemed more reasonable to give up. I spent time lying reading and thinking, and when I felt ready, I started to paint, to walk, to talk. They helped.
I had 10 years of depression, what got me out is physcial exercise, go to jog, go to swim, go to dance, go to gym, anything you can think of, just keep practicing 30-40 minutes a day, 4-5 days per week. It's okay to be just useless, go exercise, you'll feel better day by day.
