Oh hell naw.
Mental illness still carries a very real stigma, even out here in the nursing world. Even in the psych unit I work at per diem, there are some amazing, understanding folks ... but judgment is there.
I’m not about to tell my NM about my endo, or my migraines, my bipolar disorder or now my multiple sclerosis because it’s really, truly none of their damn business. As of right now, none of it affects my job and its performance, and I very rarely (if ever) call out. All is well treated and maintained; I’m doing the best I can to keep it that way.
When I did apply to my jobs, however, a list of my medications were asked and dx and I did provide those with no regret. This was not relayed to my NM.
If I tell my boss that I have diabetes no one would look at me sideways ... but say one word about a psychiatric disorder and others look askance.
