I will go against the grain:
Start with both! Yes! You can do it! You can! In fact, you will
do it better! It will be a little harder at first but much faster
in the end.
D is C... no real difference, just minor stuff. Things take time
to sink in, so if you start D and C now you will be further down
the road than if you start D later.
But if you really want to learn to program I suggest you go with
Haskell. You can do them all together too but Haskell is like
learning Alien while D is learning German.
