    I'm afraid that I could become the last man on earth if I manage to survive another couple millions of years from now.

    Humanity won't last forever and in that I'm almost sure.

    What really scares me is that maybe in a couple millions of years from now, I'd be the last human being on Earth provided that I really want to and could to survive this long and didn't kill myself long beforehand.

    You need more information. How old is the person? What kind of skills does the person have? How healthy is the person? What are the environmental conditions? If left near a major population center, and he/she is healthy and able to deal with isolation, I imagine quite a while. The could become a scavenger. There would be more than enough stored food, clothing, shelter, food, etc.
