Hey there! i am sorry to hear about your difficulties, but I am sure we can sort it out, a lot of us here are a clever bunch.
obvious question, but, Did you try lowering the seatpost?
you might have to try a smaller set of wheels, and i am presuming you have a SI mount (v brake) setup?
try (google) "long reach brakes", there are two brands i know of that can reach smaller tires.
alternatively upgrade and get a disc brake "theraphy conversion kits"http://2btherapy.com/index.php/bikes/brake-therapy-conversion-kit
but this might be very costly.
