Aw c'mon, stop beating yourself up. It was not a pathetic post. I am sure that if I had had the internet connected when I first moved here I would have been posting more pathos than you!!! You will soon find your feet over here and you will find that time disappears faster than ice on a summer's day!!!
It wasn't pathetic at all. You've been ill and you are starting a new life in a new country. You are entitled to feel a bit down. Chin up and enjoy the opportunity that you've got. In the meantime, explore all the information this forum has to offer. Stay positive!
