How do I get over this funk?

My dissertation is due in ten days. Sick of looking at it, much less engaging with it and actively making changes. Help me get through this!

The situation: Writing this 18k essay has been unnecessarily difficult, procrastinated waaaay too much, had major topic crises, etc. Working full time means that I haven't really dedicated enough time to it. Now reaching deadline, feeling completely sleep-deprived and sorry for myself.
The actual paper: Mostly done, little chunks here and there to be filled in (I know what to write but really don't feel like doing it), introduction and conclusion still to be done.
Supervisor has made changes to my draft that I still need to look over. Bibliography and footnote polishing still outstanding.
Question: How can I make this easier? If necessary please just tell me I need to get over it and just suffer for the next ten days. And probably get off metafilter. Physically how do I stop feeling queasy looking at the mush of words on a screen?
