"Para piorar as coisas".

I'm broke; I don't have a job; my girlfriend broke up with me. And to make matters worse, my mechanic just told me that my car needs a new transmission!
I cannot speak English, a cat ate my tongue, a crab pinched my middle finger and, to make matters worse, my English teacher walked out on me.

As Marcio pointed out, matterS, along with capital "I".
In addition to that one, I would like to add that:

"Yesterday my girlfriend was annoyed with/at me and to make matters worse I told her that her dress didn't suit her."?

OR
...to add insult to injury, I told her that her dress...
...and aggravating the situation further, I told her that here dress...
...and aggravating the situation further, I had the stupid idea of telling her that her dress... :lol:
...and on top of it, I told her...
