Very lost

I’m a 24 year old stay at home mom of a 3 year old boy. I’ve been diagnosed with MS 2 weeks ago, and as you can see in my title, I’m extremely lost and overwhelmed. After my hospital stay, I was sent home with little to no information about MS and left to run free with the internet. Aside from little pain management, running out of pain medication before my first neurology appointment, flare ups, and trying to make my son understand why it’s not a good time to touch mommy right now, things are not looking peachy. But the thing that stresses me out the most, is people telling me to “don’t stress” Amongst this hurricane, what should I do from here? What steps do I take? If anyone has any advice, please share. Thanks for listening to my venting.
