I learned early on, before there were as many people familiar with WordPress and eager to help, that the first thing I have to do is SEARCH by myself. I also had to learn the jargon and terms for what it was that I wanted to get the answers for. Usually, I'd find the answers along the way, but it was a struggle.
Now, there are dozens of volunteers who work overtime on this forum to answer people's question. But not everyone who is here all the time knows the answer to every question. The really tough ones have to sit there and wait for the experts, who have more than enough to do with their lives, to visit the forum and just happen upon your question and just happen to have the answer.
And this isn't the only place to get help, though it does an amazing job. The folks on the Direct Link to the #Wordpress ICQ Channel are live helpers often with the time and knowledge to do some hand holding, if you are nice and have a good sense of humor. And patience.
There are also hundreds, maybe thousands by now, of people who run into the same problems as most people run into, who post the solution on their site. Searching sometimes gives a good answer.
But good on you for admitting to your assyness. We all get frustrated. I've wanted to slam my keyboard down a few virtual throats waiting for answers while my site was borked, we've all been there. We just don't always have the answers to the questions. We're trying.
