    Find a nice street corner with a bench, sit and play like your waiting for a bus, no tips jars or anything, just playing for yourself. See what happens.

    Realize that, we all have an eventual "death sentence"; not to trivialize or invalidate your feelings regarding your own situation, however. A personal anecdote--perhaps useful, perhaps not: I spent most of my life studying and practicing and rehearsing--with ambitions and expectations that I would someday perform on increasingly bigger stages. But life presented me with other circumstances--whereby I'm not practically able to pursue playing music at times or places where others typically engage. Consequently, I spend much time playing music alone, for myself and family. I do create opportunities, with what time I do have, to share my joy of music with others. FWIW, there are people everywhere in the world who will enjoy hearing you play, and speak, about your experience with music, and more. This quality you possess--not only is a gift for you to enjoy, but also a tool which you may exploit to broaden your world; you may find, through such sharing experiences, that you derive yet more energy. Best wishes!
