I would say: Tsaw sleyku futa oe 'efu hiyìk nìtxan.

Not quite …

Tsal (= tsa’ul) / Fì’ul sleyku/’eykefu oeti hiyìk nìtxan.
If ‘it’ is a thing.

Tsakemìl/fìkemìl sleyku/’eykefu oeti hiyìk nìtxan.
If ‘it’ is an action.

It is a thing, specifically a pain relief drug.

So, back again. I would really appreciate help wit the following .....


"I miss them so much."
"I miss you."
"It doesn't seem real."
"So much pain."
"I can't do this." [this action]

Usually, nga lom lu oer is “I miss you (=one person)”

Depending on who “them” is (2, 3, 4+), I’d say me/pxe/ayfo lom lu oer nìtxan

"I can't do this."

I would have said "ke tsun oe fìkem sivi".  Is this too direct for the purpose? I don't have the context.

The speaker feels unable to confront something (spiritually/intellectually rather than literally) that is incredibly painful (mentally rather than physically) for them.
