Starting a new job...

Starting a new job is always scary, but having chronic conditions makes things even more unpredictable. What do you disclose, what do you keep to yourself?

I just started a new job and I told them that I get frequent headaches. They made were so kind about accommodating that, that they actually moved offices! I did not tell them about POTS and low and behold, I passed out visiting a construction site during my first week! A very kind person there had happened to have POTS as well and helped me out.

How do you navigate the workplace and disclosure?
