No-one to act as my POA. What to do? Am I screwed if something bad happens?

For various reasons, I don't have anyone able or willing to be my health care proxy/POA if/when the time comes that I need one. (Unmarried, only child, parents not capable, no other close family, and two closest friends not willing/able.) So how do I prevent myself from becoming another Terri Schiavo should the worst happen? Find someone super-quick and get married? Join a church (I'm agnostic)? Pay a professional (I can't really afford it)? Get a human-brain transplant for one of my pets? (Ha ha.)
There's got to be other people in my shoes. Mefites, help!
