@Nic01:  You don’t have to disclose your personal medical info. Have your doc write a note and send it to HR. Inform your manager that you have sent some private medical info to HR for their review. They will inform you of the FMLA paperwork that you need to fill out.

I think you should get your doctor to write this letter, or at least put a note in yout letter that says “a doctors note is available upon request”. Also, i think you should get HR involved, as they should be able to help you.

@Nic01:  Hello, I had endo really bad. I’ve had 7 procedures done for it so far. My doctor wrote me a letter and I gave one to HR and one to my Boss. Who is a man. He’s a really nice guy, but I still felt the same way you do.

 

 

 

    So being more comfortable about it I explained it to him, even tho he didn’t actaully need to know, but he was happy I talked to him about it and he totally understands. He tells me all the time that my health and well being is very important and that I need to take care of myself and do what I have to do.

 

  Good luck! 🙂

@Nic01:  It protects you from being fired or reprimanded for absentees due to a medical condition. Google it.
