*To everyone else....don't be like shark_feeder, don't give up hope.
This does not mean you are dead and hollow in side. For example,
There is a willow tree in my yard. Years ago, it got hit by lightning. The trunk was damaged, but still pretty good.
Then some hydro guys came in, without our permission, and began attempting to cut down the tree with a chainsaw, cutting vertically into the truck
where it was struck by lightning. We came outside, told them to leave, so on and so forth.
So there it sat. A big gaping hole in the trunk of this tree. Struck by lightning; mutilated. We thought that maybe it would heal over and be fine in
a year or so. Well, that wasn't the case.
Gradually, the leaves began to die off from the bottom up, but they never reached the top. A fine dust accumulated at the base of the tree from some
type of insect that was eating at the trunk. Yet, those insects did not make it to the top of the tree, where it was still alive, and beautiful simply
it was alive.
So away I went. Took the dead limbs off with a chainsaw, used a layer of tree sealer (akin to a rubber), and a lot of expanding foam. The tree is
alive, and getting much better.
Your description of being dead and hollow reminds me of this willow tree.
I guess what I am trying to say is, you may not feel love and hope, but it certainly feels you.
