As I said, I think you better first take a straight pass through C which will help you whether you move to web world (PHP or others) or OSX/iOS development or others. After done with C, your next step should be getting the idea about classes and objects.
BTW, why don't you post the things that boggled your brain so that we can discuss all those things to help to clear them to you?
That's 'little Intel' is now the giant one, not? Well, even with my little carrier, I know that heat and words are sent to and received back between Developers and SQA/Tester teams and its natural and funny.
You decided to move to web world only because you found ObjC/C++ a bit harder than it, or, you just felt more interest in it? However, I think it is better to learn C (or at least get an idea of it) to move to others. It will be easier for you as you started C already.
Let us discuss your questions and I bet we'll learn a lot from you.
