Existential Anxiety

I'm 20 and I've been having some hardcore existential anxiety, I always long for answers that cannot be answered. I always find myself overthinking? life in itself. I never used to have this problem until about a year or two ago but it's becoming much worse. It's anxiety that I feel I cannot escape from. I know I'm still young and what not but all I ever think about is is this all a simulation? If so who or what is behind it all? I never used to have anxieties but it all just kind of hit me at once and is quite overwhelming. No one I know my age has these same anxieties about life or their future. I always find myself thinking about how irrelevant the human race is and how we're all just specs of specs of a spec of dust. I can't stop questioning what this life is and how life itself even works. I feel like I can't live a normal life because of how intense my curiosity is about literally everything. I can't meditate because of how much shit is going on in my mind 24/7, I don't find yoga to be relaxing, therapy is quite pointless (I've seen atleast 4 different therapists/psychiatrists and none of them have helped me in the slightest) and I just feel like a lost cause. I've tried my best to explain my situation and I hope it made sense somewhat. I would love to talk with like minded people. Why am I feeling these feelings and thoughts so deeply to where it affects me physically and mentally?

I don't really have any answers but my experience is similar. I am 19 years old and I go through severe anxiety 24\7 about 3-4 years ago it hit me randomly and it hasn't gone away since. I never experienced any type of anxiety when I was younger and now all of a sudden I feel like a totally different person. My thoughts are a little similar about how this world works. I am always questioning how we are all here and where we came from. I do not understand it whatsoever. It is very difficult to deal with anxiety especially when you have no one to talk to or relate to. I have a hard time because my family is not supportive and do not understand. I have been on many different medications and have seen a therapist and nothing has helped me either. If you ever need anyone to talk to feel free to message me at anytime. It's nice to have someone to talk to about this kind of stuff without feeling like you're crazy.
