libc6 is bad and files missing need to downgrade HELP!!!

ok i added a "testing" repository to my atp-get sources cause i needed one packages but forgot to remove it.
then i accidentally updated a bunch of packages... libc6 was one of them.
this one is bad. many crucial files are missing. many programs no longer working. is missing, is missing, and many more. i cant just uninstall the package since that will remove half my system along with it!!! i am trying to force the version in synaptic but it wants to remove half my system once again. i need help downgrading back to a stable version. somehow i need to temporarily break the dependency and downgrade libc6. i know it cant be that hard. i need help now!!!
