Can you get to a copy of Microsoft Word, even temporarily - perhaps
at work, at your educational establishment, at a library, in an
internet cafe, at a friend's, and so on?  If the material is not
confidential, perhaps you could e-mail it to a friend.  If so, you
could open .docx document files and re-save them as .doc files -
which LibreOffice could then open.  You could also take a screenshot
of the .docx version or export a PDF version (which later versions of
Microsoft Office will do natively).  You could retain this as a guide
to what the original document looked like and use it to guide you
when you were later editing the .doc in LibreOffice and saving it as .odt.

Would that work any better?

I trust this helps.
