how do normal people enter the freeway?

Can anyone please explain to me how to enter the highway without mentally writing my last will and testament? It terrifies me and I feel I endanger other people, too.

OK so I have been driving for 3 years. I have done several long trips and always thought I would get better at it, but no. I have tiny panic attacks whenever I have to enter the highway. I have watched videos on Youtube, asked my husband for advice and I just don't get it. I mean they tell you to accelerate before entering, right? and that you MUST choose a spot before and fall neatly into it. But this is too damn hard for me!
I never break or even go too slow (I think), but there's always a little commotion when I try to do it, because i don't know how to fall into place.
I also freak out when other people are trying to get in and I'm on the right lane. I slow down and start driving like I WANT to have an accident.
I need a full explanation for dummies on how these things are supposed to work.
