Don't give up! Educate yourself -- this is extremely important. Find something that appeals to your psyche, to your inner peace, to help you deal with the information you will be getting, because some of it will be scary as hell. If you have something inside you that keeps you calm, you will navigate through things beautifully.

For me, it's God that keeps me calm. I'm not religious though. It's just I have an incredible belief in something greater than myself.
