Happy that you have joined us!
You hit upon the important point when you mentioned working with a therapist. These issues are very difficult for us to work on by ourselves. A therapist can ask the hard questions that we would avoid and help keep us focused. Our minds want to avoid the difficult and stressful things to think about, but the problem is that nothing gets resolved with that kind of thought process.
Anyway, rest assured that you are not the first and you won’t be the last, but it is survivable and moving forward is very likely.
