Wonderful work. I was one of those English Ed students who was lucky enough to panic-switch majors far too late into school. I was so afraid of teaching permanently forcing me in the closet and making my anxiety explode.
Needless to say, my experience is different from yours, but with that bit of overlap and the fact that I'm staring into uncertainty myself...this is a comfort. I'm glad you're doing better, and I hope you continue to move forward and get closer to the life you deserve.
