For those of you who are working, how have you handled dealing with MS in the workplace? I have kept my diagnosis to myself in the past -- and plan to keep it that way for a while. (I have seen what office gossip can do to people). Since I have no outward physical symptoms, I feel like it's something I can continue to conceal; however, I am concerned about how to handle a flare up if it makes it physically noticable that I'm struggling or renders me unable to work. Currently, I am working part-time, but I am looking for full-time work in the public school system. I've skirted around an IV steroid infusion last year, but I'm not sure what to do if I have more noticable symptoms. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
