Part of the problem is my shoe size is a 12A. Yes, I walk on skis. My skates are 11.5D (length is fine), and I honestly haven't seen any skate slimmer than a D at that length. The Missions were the best fitting pair I happened to try (that was in my price range).

I wear double socks, and it helps. Should I try triple socks? What can I do to get a more secure fit around the ankles?
When you bought the skates did the person selling you them heat up the skates and then make you wear them for 15 minutes super tight? If not get to a skate shop and get them to properly fit them for you. they may even be able to push in the sides for you.
