First-time anxiety

Hello everyone. :D I just got my Mooncup UK in the mail yesterday, and I'm very excited about it. I had a little time alone in the house this morning so I decided to try insertion for the first time (my period's still a week away)... but it hasn't gone so well thus far. :/

I'm using the punch-down method because the C-fold seems too wide... but no matter what I do, I keep freaking out before I get it in all the way. I'm a 16 year old virgin, never used a tampon, and no matter how many times I tell myself that it can't be that bad, my muscles tense up as soon as I try to insert...

So I guess my question is, can anyone give me some advice on how to chillax long enough to get the damn thing in? The longer I squat in my bathroom, the more frustrated I get. Sigh.
