Also, I am probably one of the few that feels this timeline has always been different, even as far back as the Kelvin.
No, you're not actually. I always felt like the JJverse was never the "Prime" Universe. It was it's own Independent timeline, that had some common event's with the prime universe, but was still it's own separate universe, not born out of Nero and Spock "Prime" 's accidental incursion.

That is clearly not was portrayed nor has been stated by JJ Abrams. The timeline was the prime timeline that branched off the day of Kirk's birth. In the novelization based of the official script, when Spock first encounters Scotty he comments that it is evidence the timeline is attempting to "correct" itself.

Abrams on the alternate time line:

ABRAMS: "Here’s the thing… I think the key to that was, first of all, it was one of those things that not everyone even cares about or understands the timeline of it all. The notion that when this one character, Nero, arrives in his ship, that basically the timeline is altered at that moment, so everything forward is essentially an alternative timeline. That is not to say that everything that happened in The Original Series doesn’t exist. I think, as a fan of movies and shows, if someone told me the beloved thing for me was gone, I would be upset. But we didn’t do that. We’re not saying that what happened in that original series wasn’t good, true, valid, righteous and real. Let people embrace that. We’re not rejecting that. That, to me, would have been the big mistake. We’re simply saying that, "At this moment, the very first scene in the first movie, everything that people knew of Star Trek splits off into now another timeline.
