Wow. You're showing some real courage coming here and laying it all out like that, to complete strangers too!
First and foremost, welcome to Primal. You've already begun your journey by deciding to make the change and by admitting you got a problem. A lot of people don't get that far, so give yourself a pat on the back.
The Primal journey you're about to embark on, if you stick with it (and I sincerely hope you do) is gonna be a lifechanger, no doubt. All the things you thought were right and wrong, all those preconceptions the world has drilled into your head, they're gonna change and your view of things will as well.
If you need advice, or suggestions, or have any question or anything like that, feel free to ask the good folks here or myself. We're a happy, (mostly) helpful Primal community.
EDIT: Oh, and I'm following! Forgot to add that.
