Welcome from South Carolina...
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

Never challenge an old man, because if you lose, you’ve lost to an old man, and if you win, so what?

Hello, Rosie, and welcome from Missouri to a really great forum. Good people and info here! Be surfe to check out several different makes and models of handguns for CC, considering how you plan on carrying, and what is comfortable in your grip and weapon operation. If you can rent different handguns you are interested in to test fire, definitely do so. I prefer 9mm, and have a Taurus 709 Slim and Kahr K9 for CC. Also wanted to try a S&W M&P Shield but couldn't find one to even try the fit (very popular). All have managable recoil, and are capable to effectively stop a threat with appropriate ammo and proper use.
Since you are new to this handgun, self defense arena, consider taking some good instructional classes. I also recommend you check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good information from an expert, and free.
And, best wishes for a safe, prosperous New Year to you and yours.
