I think it’s possible to let your problems work for you. They can affect how you tell a story, but any story can be told any way.
The simplest possible method to tell the story is for you yourself to deliver the story directly to camera. And there’s even different ways of doing that – video/film diary, home video/movies, various styles of news report, documentary/mockumentary, etc.
That’s the simplest. Everything else is an expansion of that.
