I must admit, your post is a little difficult to read. Is English your native language? If not congrats on learning the fundamentals, I wish I knew a second language. I couldn't really find a question to answer in your post; did you have one? Or are you just needing moral support and encouragement?

The OP seems to have been the victim of autocorrect. Only speaking from my experience of trying to post from my phone.

I started with Algebra I last semester and am taking Algebra II right now. Once I was in the classroom it all started to come back to me, don't worry. In my Algebra II class right now I have a 105% I have missed 1 question all semester. I am taking College Algebra over the summer online and I am scared to death. I am really nervous about doing an online class to begin with but algebra? But I have to due to several trips I will be taking this summer with my son and his judo team. I keep telling myself all I need is a C to pass, all I need is a C to pass.

Start at whatever level you need to be successful. It won't count against you- it will show you are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.

Wow, that was quite a run-on sentence!

Whatever level you start with is no biggie, honestly. I put off math for SO long out of fear, and had been out of high school at least 10 years before I finally bit the bullet and went for it. I didn't do as bad as I'd imagined, and being placed into the proper math really helped me to succeed. I ended up with As in math for the first time in my life! Don't stress too much, and just go for it. :)
