I would like to know your honest opinions on whether you think in my position that you could swap to micro four thirds and adjust to the smaller system.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. It doesn't sound like you have any choice, but to switch to something smaller.

So my question is: Olympus, Fuji, or Panasonic?. I need portrait, wide-angle, and macro capability in that order of importance. I'm leaning towards Olympus.

Maybe something like:

Olympus E-M5
Panasonic 14mm F/2.5
Olympus 45mm F/1.8
Olympus 60mm F/2.8 Macro

I'm very sorry to read about your problem, and can imagine how heartsick I might be in a similar circumstance. I have a D7000, and use DX lenses which in total are quite light compared with FX equipment. Maybe you should go to a Best Buy or somewhere, and see if any of the DX cameras are something you could manage, because their IQ is quite remarkable for the sensor size.
