Newly diagnosed and worrying

Hi all, I’m new to this site but am excited to be here. Im 28 and was diagnosed with RRMS 2 months ago after over a year of numbness, tingling, fatigue and changes in my sense of hot and cold. Doctors suspected I may have Lyme disease so although they found spinal cord lesions in my first mri my diagnosis was delayed until I moved to chester and a new neurologist reviewed all of my scans and lumber puncture results. He says I have 2 lesions on my spinal cord and one on my brain... I feel relieved to finally have a diagnosis and initially I took it really well. But Iv had a few wobbles since, I’m worrying about my career (I have a really physical job) and my love life (what if nobody wants me!) and I’m only learning to drive now (what if I never succeed!). Has anyone else had to face these internal demons?? Does it get better?? I’m debating wether or not to speak to someone professional...
