If one party to a contract suffers from a mental impairment, and the other party is aware of that impairment, the contract can be "voidable" - meaning that the impaired party has the right to enforce or void the contract at their option.
If you are under a mental impairment that makes it difficult to process or fully understand the implications of a transaction such as this, and the other party is aware of this impairment, and has taken advantage of you, it may be worth speaking to a local civil litigation attorney at this time.
You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
I would recommend speaking with a local civil litigation attorney. It is likely that you can use the information you have to reach a settlement with this person in a way that you are not being taken advantage of. But I do recommend using an attorney as you do not want to be compromised a second time.
I cannot predict the outcome of your case. You have a lot of evidentiary issues and I am only looking at the summary as you have typed it here. You need to speak with a local attorney to discuss your matter in full and get a consultation (most civil litigation attorneys will provide you with a free, or reduced cost, consultation to discuss your matter and potential resolutions).
You are welcome, and I do wish you the best with this matter.
