Compressor problem?

I overcharged my ac system a few months ago because I thought it was low since it was blowing only barely cool air. Got the pressure back to where it should be. But now in idle the compressor cycles off and on constantly a lot of the time and won't blow cool air unless the truck is moving. Also, now the blower ceases to turn on unless its on high. Getting the feeling that a new compressor will be in my future. Checked the fuses and they are good.

Start over. Pull a vacuum, put 22oz of 134a and see if that works. If not you have other issues.

That is unrelated to your compressor problem. You have a bad blower motor resistor.... That is an easy 15/20 minute fix to change out.
