I'm sorry things are so bad for you at the moment.
I dont have much advice I'm afraid but you may want to look into DLPA (D-L-Phenylalanine). It's a 'somewhat' natural remedy that seems to help pain by increasing the bodies own pain-killing chemicals. It can also help with mood and motivation. Here's a typical abstract that I found on line:
You'll also find info on it in the 'Alternative' section here at Psychobabble.
Please be carefull though as I'm not sure what meds it might react with. SSRI's would be ok but as Remeron increases Noradrenaline (norepinephrine) and so does DLPA, there might be some interaction.
