My Story 1 Appreciate this

Hey everyone. I was diagnosed with RRMS, recently, on 2-19-2019. Needless to say, I'm still in the shock/disbelief phase. I have moments when I start crying for no real reason and start to think about the "why's" and play out the potential future scenarios. I know those feelings will improve with time, but for now I'm just taking it one day at a time. Thinking back to a couple of years ago, I believe I had my first attack showing itself as a severe bout of vertigo. I chalked it up as sinusitis, as I've had it before, and didn't think much of it. Then last year, a couple of days before Christmas, I woke up with central vision loss in my right eye. After going to a couple of specialists and getting an MRI done, I was diagnosed with optic neuritis, then RRMS, and the rest is history. Any opinions/advice given will be greatly appreciated. I look forward to growing with and getting to know everyone!
