Wise women of the board-please help...

I find myself totally numb since the diagnosis of four brain tumors instead of one brain tumor. People ask how I am doing and I just shrug and say fine. I haven't cried or wept since the diagnosis which is highly unusual for me. I usually cry at commercials or at church or in my car and it just has not happened. I heard a story on the radio about a boy that died of cancer which would normally bring on a crying fit and I just listened and sighed.
I guess it is my body's way of keeping it all together. I have just shut down and am going through the motions. Is this normal? How long does it last? I know none of you are psychotherapists but I didn't know if anyone else had experienced this.
Please e-mail me if you don't want to emote all over the board. I am worried that I am so unnaturally calm.
