  1. Any mental illness you may have is probably unrelated to your desire to learn programming. Smile | :)
  2. It depends on the hardware that you have for development. If you have a Windows PC, I would use Visual Studio with the add-ins for iOS development (using C# and Xamarin). The Visual Studio IDE is excellent, and the Community Edition is free for single developers, so your financial investment is nil.
As for learning C# and Xamarin, I would go with the O'Reilly Publishing books. "Learning C#" is a little dated, but a good start. "Programming C# 8.0" is more up-to-date, but may assume knowledge that you don't have, it you've skipped developments in programming over the last few decades. They also have a wide selection of books about Xamarin, but never having read them, I can't recommend any book in particular.

Enjoy!
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
