Hi everyone. Java is my first language and some of the thinking/planning/logic just baffles me. I also find many of the books outright confusing (I own Head First and a few others). I am hoping that by having a living/breathing person on the other side of the screen it can help me understand some of the concepts. Having a TBI and PTSD doesn't help matters much either.

Welcome Steve. I am brand new to Java and was also searching for a place that I could find real, human to human interaction. I have already found the community at coderanch to be kind, knoweladgable and helpful. The site is also filled with great information, so dive in and have fun!

That's how everyone starts out It's totally normal for stuff to not click until somebody explains it just the right way, too. Some people are super lucky and find books that explain things just the right way for them, other people need to ask questions and ask different people until they get an answer that makes sense to them.
