Lumbar Puncture Results Anxiety

I just scheduled my lumbar puncture, I'm not really worried about the procedure, but more about the results. I don't like that I need someone to pick me up, it makes me feel so dependent and like I can't just take care of myself, but otherwise I'm not worried about the procedure. What has me freaking out is the results, MS or more "We don't know" and both outcomes seem really bad to me. This is the last test that I'll be getting, and I honestly just don't know how much more not knowing I can take. Most of the things I've found about the lumbar puncture seem to be about the fear of the needle or the after-effects, but just hoping I'm not alone in the worrying about the results.
