I went to the Patent and Trademark website to find that someone patented my idea in January of this year.

Sometimes an idea's time has come (ref: Newton and Leibniz independently inventing differential and integral calculus more-or-less simultaneously). Don't worry about it. This time you were ~6 months behind the times. Eventually an idea will land on you first.
