More help with kitchen wall

OK, I tore down panelling that was glued and nailed to 1 wall of my kitchen. I scraped, then sanded...looked good felt smooth. Primed it and every blemished showed through...have no idea how I missed it but it looks bad. If it was all evenly trowelled on I would just paint and be done with it, but some sections are trowelled, some have straight glue lines, and some "S" pattern glue lines (what the hell was this guy thinking). Anyway, I'm tired. I'm physically and mentally tired of dealing with this wall. Is there any paint type, color, texture that will cover most of the problems? Pon't tell me I have to do more than paint...thanks in advance (unless you have bad news for me).

Some thoughts. Primer generally has a bit of a sheen to it, so it shows defects in the wall that may not be obvious when the flat paint is applied. It may be that when the flat paint is applied these defects won't show.

You may feel better about the whole project if you can walk away from it for a couple of days.

That's what I'm hoping for...

If I walk away too long I ain't comin back.
