Hello I am a 30 year old disabled veteran. I have wanted to be a physicist for most of my life but due to mental illness I have not been able to do anything about it. I am now completely stable and I think it is a good time to get started on my dream. I know it will be difficult but I like a challenge. One problem I see is I don't have the necessary math knowledge that is required to get into a physics course. I don't have a clue about what I need to do to start my education. I feel so far behind everyone else.
