Your feeling is well earned as your role as tester is quite a valious one.

Then both you and the community will get benefit from you using Sid when you 
feel ready (where the environment allows for it, maybe a "for-fun" machine or 
a chrooted/virtualized environment where you can upgrade and test without 
fear for the results).

While the focus on Testing is for the user to provide good quality bug 
reports, Sid goes beyond that: it benefit the most when you can take the time 
to dive into the technical details of those bugs that itch you most, maybe 
narrowing the conditions where the bug appears, maybe having a look at the 
sources to find what's wrong (which will certainly make you embetter your 
coding abilities at a faster pace) or even, in the best cases, providing a 
thought out patch or resolution for the problem at hand.

Keep your enthusiasm.
