Schizoaffective(SA) and Diabetes

I have both; Diabetes and schizoaffective (SA) which make day-to-day very difficult. My treatments include:
-haldol x2
-seroqual x1
-Lantus x1
-Novolog/ Humolg R x3
-opana er 40 mg x2
-Hydromorphone 4mg x6
-Klonopine .5-1.0mg x1 (for RLS)
-Orphenadrine Citrate 100mg x2
-nabumenton (occassionally)

I cannot seem to get the necessary relief from the medications. I am constantly in agony. My social dysfunctions are at an all time high. I have no focus which is terrible because I need to attend some occupational therapy. by most observational standards I am discombobulated. Even though I am American my dysfunction resemble that of an immigrant or other worldly perception of occurrences and events.

How can I get my Doctors on the same page without constant reboot via the form of hospitalization? Called on this method before which yielded detrimental results in therapy. To delve only slightly the health department offers programs for those of mental dysfunction but I receive social ostracization without being crowed by other disorders not at all related to my own(autism) for an instance.

I need solutions to a compounded situation, my existance.
