The best fix is probably to do non-gaming development (with significantly better pay) until you're wealthy enough to do indie development on your own schedule. Cut out the stressful employer-related problems like job security and deadlines by doing it yourself. This empowers developers and robs the AAA industry of desperate laborers.

Really, everyone should strive for a strong financial foundation so they don't have to live with a shitty employment situation. Having enough money for a decade or two, or even just a year, or expenses does a lot for your mental state.
