Cheers to opening a new door, with a sledgehammer in one hand and a rose in the other.

Don't be alarmed or put off. It gets easier.
Many people spend six months to a year lurking, I'd guess, reading the previous messages where major topics are covered and getting to know the lay-of-the-land, so to speak.
Take your time and read, read, read. I'd even suggest resisting the urge to reply, because doing so would interrupt your education.
Of course, you can't read everything, so best to get caught up on those subjects where you're likely to post comments.
Finally, welcome to ATS.
