How did everyone get started in UI/UX/or all the other genres of Design?

I am looking to change careers, and the one path is UI/UX Designer, and the other is Web Developer. I have not had an opportunity to be immersed in either's work place to know if thats what I want to do. I just know family is on my mind so I got to pick something. I know I am in love with art in general, but I am all about being heavily needed. I know looking at the job boards won't help me to decide that could hinder it. I found coroflot, krop, behance, and my favorite that got me looking dribbble. I could easily spend looking at dribbble a few times a day easy. I wonder how do UI/UX Designers think? I know how Web Developers think. What is UI/UX process to solving problems? How hard is it to get the first job? What software & coding language tools are needed? Do you need a degree or do you absolutely need to have knowledge of the process, and a killer portfolio? I hope you guys don't mind answering this question.
