I was thinking more on the line of the accused in a murder trial of his parents asking for consideration of the fact that he was an orphan.  

This a hell of  a nerve.  It does not augur well for a future in academics.  As simply as i can put it, don't use tools you haven't studied.  Tell your advisor to either give you time to learn about gllamm or allow you to use other tools.

While I feel for you---and you need to realize that your thesis
advisor has utterly screwed you, too---there's no way that any of us
can meaningfully help. If I may make an analogy, your request is like
walking into an acute care center with a gunshot wound to the chest.
