Hello Kodiak, i think each one has its one particularity in learning the math,
i'm still learning. But here my advise:

1- Don't rush yourself much, be patient.
2- Numbers are really scary, but think of them as things you like.
3- Don't forget number theory and arithmetic. When i first started my
journey at math i begun with arithmetic and number theory, so that when you
see something, a subject like calculus, it'll be more easy.

good luck, and do not give up.

Math Focus: Calculus and Physics
It seems you are doing all the right things currently! Just because it says that you begin with Analytic Geometry, Linear Algebra, and Calculus, I am certain there are easier math classes available to take if you want to take another step back to ensure you are comfortable with earlier maths. At my university, most math majors start with calculus 1, but I opted to go through two semesters of pre-calculus since I was a horrible student in high school and it certainly has paid off building a foundation for math. However, I could imagine you can easily gain the same knowledge through Khan academy and other resources (which it seems like you are doing!).

Good luck!
