How much math skill do I need in the computer science field?

Okay so I'm currently a senior in high school and I didn't know what I wanted to do as far as a career, well actually I still don't. A little while back I started to think about a technology field I love computers and started thinking about a computer science field. The thing is, I'm extremely bad at math I can't do trig, hell I barely know whats going on in that class. Its not that I don't try I just don't get it! I'm really worried about my future at this point I don't know what to do and everything I find is that a lot of people are saying that you need a solid mathematical background. Then again I find that people are saying that you need basic math skills and you will do good in the field if you are a good problem solver and can work well with others. I find that all of this information does not help me and maybe is giving me some sorta of false hope. I really would appreciate it if someone will give me a definite answer and please don't sugar coat it in any way. I want to know if I have any shot at all or I should quit wasting my time and move on to something else... thanks!
