Well, I know I can get weepy too, (very un-masculine thing I know
) and it is usually related to the rude awakenings as a starting point. I don't have a lot of help for you, but this is what I told myself and my wife......."at this point it doesn't matter. It's what I had yesterday, it's what I have today, and it's still gonna be there tomorrow, even if they change the name I am still ill. The only thing to do is find the best way to cope. And try and realize this is with us and will stay there. Don't act any different just cuz the condition has a name now."
It helps about 90% of the time, but I still have my down days. Not sure if I related this in a way that makes any real sense. I hope it did so that it might help you.
