"Feeling down and all alone... There are times where I want to give up and take my own life."

First, it might be wise to meet with a good priest and/or contact your diocese [and/or utilize other applicable & worthy resource(s)] for suicide prevention counseling / assistance, as they may be better able to help with the particulars of your situation.

That being said, I'm truly sorry things are so difficult for you right now. We all go through hard times, but we must persevere. Remember that Scripture tells us to "Cast all your worries upon him because he cares for you." (1 Pt. 5:7) We also know that every hair on our heads is counted (see Mt. 10:30) and that God loves us so much that Christ shed every drop of His Precious Blood to save us. Remember that you are God's child. He chose to create you instead of an infinite number of other people that He could have created. Also, you are very loved by your Mother Mary and by the angels and saints, not to mention your Catholic brethren. Even though you may feel alone sometimes, you are never really alone since God is there, as is your guardian angel. Remember also that you have many friends in heaven. Rather than giving in to feelings of despair and other negative thoughts, you might try focusing on the merits gained from suffering. Suffering can be very profitable for your soul, whereas a person intentionally taking their own life would be gravely sinful and would put their eternal soul at risk. Perhaps you might consider items on the page here regarding suffering (including 'suffering has meaning', 'how to suffer'). Remember that God – your Father in heaven – is always there for you and ALWAYS loves you. Also keep in mind that Scripture exhorts us to pray unceasingly. A good priest may also be able to provide you with some more specific advice during this difficult time. In any event, I believe that if you love God, reach out to Him, and do as He has commanded us to do, He will make this difficult time profitable for you and will help you to bear your suffering. As Scripture says, "No trial has come to you but what is human. God is faithful and will not let you be tried beyond your strength; but with the trial he will also provide a way out, so that you may be able to bear it." (1 Cor. 10:13) Don't give in to temptation – remember it pleases your mortal enemy, Satan, NOT God, when persons take their own lives. Follow the lead of your merciful Savior and carry your cross. Keep in mind that God hears your prayers and that you are never alone. God loves you dearly as His beloved child. Your life is valuable & precious - it is *not* something to be thrown away, even if you may have to suffer sometimes.
