Default Failed step 1 as IMG, and I'm lost AF and don't know what to do.

I took the exam just under a month ago, and received my scores exactly 3 weeks after, which was 170.

I posted what I did in an earlier post, but couldn't link it here because of forum restrictions "To be able to post links or images your post count must be greater". But basically I did Kaplan, and the UFAP, and did both UWorld and UWSA and NBMEs.

Can I please get advice on what to do next? Inasmuch as I want to continue on and try again, I've rummaged through forums after forums and it seems that the hope of getting into a program is lost after this massive setback. I feel like my whole world crumbled right before my eyes.
