Okay, here's the situation. Im 20 years old. I was home schooled by my mother, who had no idea what she was doing. She didn't want me in school, so she kept me home, but didn't really educate me. She taught me to read, that's about it. Fortunately I had a strong drive to learn and I read a lot and taught myself things. But I didn't have anything close to a normal education. She also was strongly against college, so I was never taught how to prep for it or given any guidance in selecting a career. And as an addition hindrance, I wasn't properly socialized growing up, so I have terrible anxiety and I don't really know how to interact with people. I know, my life's a mess.

Now that you have some background, here's my question: How do I overcome this and get into college? Where do I start? Should I get a GED or am I young enough to enroll and do senior year of high school and get a diploma? Is that even a possibility? I'm so overwhelmed. Can someone show me one step at a time how to get my life on track? Am I a lost cause, or do you think I have a chance at making something of myself?

Thank you so much for your help!

Oh, I should add that I live in Wisconsin. Which means it's very easy to say you're home schooling your kid. The state never checks up on you, you're never tested, you don't have to prove anything or follow a curriculum. You could literally teach your child nothing and there would be no consequences. Which is basically what happened to me.
