Well, it entirely understandable that you feel stressed in the situation you describe. Sounds like the main advice you need, urgently, is financial advice, and your bank should be able to provide this ( I'm a financial idiot, so I wouldn't are advise on that area ). They may also be able to comment usefully on your general business plan, which sounds as though it could be much less realistic than you expected.
I'm puzzled by what you say about a driver whose wrong-doing has apparently cost you a great deal. what makes you so sure that you can rely on his promises to pay back all that he owes ? Is his work actually worth a great deal to you ? Paying back would presumably just be giving you back a portion of the salary you pay him, so might not be entirely satisfactory. What guarantee do you have ? What if he finds a job elsewhere, and just disappears, leaving his debt behind him ?
Officially it would not be recommendable, but a small amount of pot in the evening, if it has not caused you adverse reactions so far, would probably not make further problems. But smoking it more than that little, is often associated with a marked loss of motivation, and could worsen your situation.
I haven't found anything available over the counter which would be helpful ; many of those on offer contain old antihistamines and other sedatives, which, like the usual and inadvisable benzo tranquilizers too many GPs give out too easily, both ca be habit-forming, and reduce your ability to concentrate, something you really need to keep intact.
Check whether there is any source of free counselling, such as the psych department of your nearest medical school, as this could enable you to learn how to cope with stress and anxiety with your own resources.
