Help Scared to Start Step 1 Prep

Hello everyone..

I am thinking of pursuing a career in the states but haven't applied to anything yet i am scared about the whole process..
I finished my BA from Jordan with a good GPA, i am doing an internship year here and the year is almost done.. i want to apply for the exams.. but i don't have enough money and i haven't started studying well.. i feel so overwhelmed, i don't know how to begin studying even should i start with step 1 or 2 or what..

I was born in the states but didn't live much there so i have a green card, but i feel so scared to think about the exams and all..

i need to find a study partner and someone who is serious and committed, i am really hard working and a fast reader.. but i can't focus in my study cuz i feel so lost..

looking forward to meeting someone who could study with me..
Thanks for reading..
