We all have been in your shoes......diagnosis is different for everyone as far as how they take it. I thought I would reply to your post seeing as how I dealt with it the same way as it seems you are. I cried and cried for weeks, but I think it's like grieving really....just part of the process. Then I went into a long stage of denial.....over a year I avoided going on any drugs as I thought maybe it wasn't MS, maybe they were wrong. I paid for that big time in August of this year. I woke up with an enormous headache, and all of a sudden throughout the day the left side of my face got more and more numb from my chin to the back of my head. I was scared and made an appointment with my GP the next day. I woke up in the morning feeling 10 times worse, I had severe vertigo that caused me to throw up profusely. My hubby was a few hours away at work so my dad came to rush me to the ER. I was put on a high dose of prednesone and given IV zofran for the dizziness. I went home and laid in bed for 4 days. I was severely depressed as my children couldn't understand why mommy couldn't play or read stories. I sstill have some facial numbness and balance issues more than a month later, but it's getting better. I started my copaxone injections on October 7th, and I'm staying positive because after having lost my independence for a few days, I realize how much we take for granted. I still have some doubts about my diagnosis, but realized that I want to have a good quality of life and be active with my kids as long as possible. Anyway just realized I've been rambling but hope it helps a little
take care and good luck on the copaxone!!
