It is very common to feel isolated in grad school. What you can do is talk to your adviser and make a plan about your expected graduation date. Some advisers are mean and don't agree on that. But it is very important to do so, in particular in situations where student is too lonely, because it gives you an assurance that you will be done by a particular time if you work hard.
Crystallography is a great field. You may find it exciting to be able to measure the structures of biologically relevant systems that you may be interested in, so your background of molecular biology should be helpful. It will be a great combination of being able to measure the systems that you understand too. I don't know if you will be using x-rays for your crystallography studies?
Whether or not you "enjoy" the field will depend a lot on your adviser. Meanness, hypocrisy, etc. are some common traits found in advisers...
