From my understanding, you’re either Catholic or you’re not. There’s no “considering yourself” Catholic. You have to be baptized, confirmed and taking the Sacraments to be Catholic. You generally have to be a registered and paying member of a diocese/parish to get married in a Catholic ceremony in the church (which is the only kind they recognize)

That being said, if you feel like your marriage to your first husband was legit in the eyes of the church (married during a celebration of Mass), then you need to be granted an anulment by the parish in which you married in order to get re-married in the church AND be viewed as a full, practicing Catholic. (Divorced and remarried Catholics who do not get an anulment are not supposed to receive the Sacraments). 

Contact your local parish if this is something you’re interested in, if you believe your first marriage was valid and to inquire about required Pre-Cana (counseling) sessions. 

Good luck!
