How do you get through a breakup when you are depressed and have no support system?

I've been through breakups before and know all about what would be good for me right now (friends, family, taking care of myself, no contact with him, etc). But what if I don't have friends or family I feel like I can turn to? I've struggled with depression for quite awhile, and was recently going through a low point, when I got a new therapist and change in medications. Things have been getting slightly better, but then this breakup just toppled my already precarious stability.
I can deal with a broken heart and missing him. But I have no other support system and am worried I'm going spiral into deep depression, alone in this big city. I will be meeting with my therapist, which might help unravel my thoughts, but doesn't give me the comfort, support, and love I need right now. I am so sad and scared and lonely...
