**Look for a mentoring program at a Jr. College**
Don't beat yourself up before you try. It could be that you are scaring yourself and really making it into a big ol' monster before you've enrolled. Ask lots of these types of questions at whichever colleges you are considering.

It may help you to know that there are actually quite a few of us, with myself included, who have been afraid of math because of the way we were taught in high school. I was really afraid of taking any college math classes because I felt like such a failure in high school. It turns out that my math teacher was actually a very poor excuse for a teacher.

I went to a tutor in the beginning of my college years, but I gradually found that I could actually understand the math quite well. I have to admit, I'm still a bit of a math phobic, but I don't want my students to be afraid of math like I was, so I go the extra mile to make sure they understand what they are doing. As a matter of fact, an eighth grade teacher told me my name came up again and again whenever he asked his classes who their best math teacher was. They said they liked the way I taught math because I explained it so they could understand it. (I was glad they never knew how hard it was for me to figure out what I was teaching!

Several years ago I volunteered at a local junior college as a mentor for 'at-risk' students who wanted extra support to get through their first years of college. I know this was a specially funded program, but maybe you can ask around to see if there are any similar programs for students who struggled through high school. If not, I'm sure, as others have stated, there are tutoring programs and/or remedial programs to help you get through your classes.

Give yourself a running start by being more positive. Ask around for programs where you can get some help with the math, if that's what's keeping you from going forward. Again, as others have said, it IS possible!
