It does bother you, big time. Else you wouldn't write here.

At 17 you haven't even begun to live yet so how can you possibly decide it's pointless. Get back into your life, interact, go see a doc and let your future flourish as at this stage you can still be whatever you want to be, within limits. You can't be Superman as the job is filled.

Try doing some different things and I don't mean drugs or alcohol.
