Do you think I should tell a potential employer I have turner syndrome?

Do you think I should tell a potential employer I have turner syndrome?

No: In my opinion, there is no reason for you to disclose any health issues to a prospective employer unless there is a very real possibility that a health issue would impact your ability to carry out the duties of the position.

I'm applying for a job. Do you think I should tell a potential employer I have asperger's syndrome?

Depends on job: If you know you are going to have trouble doing certain things such as interacting with lots of people or need to avoid too much chaos, then it might be useful to explain to your boss what those needs are to do a good job.

I think I have Marfan syndrome, but i'm not sure if I want to go get checked. Will it affect insurance?

Unknown: The new health care law says that insurers cannot deny insurance for "preexisting conditions". So if this health care law stays in place it will not be a problem. No matter what, if you may have marfan's you need to have it confirmed, and if positive see a cardiologist. With good care, pts with marfan's can have normal lifespan. Without care they can have cardiac problems. ...Read more

It's a poor long-term life strategy. If someone has told you that you "might" have it, then they suspect you're feigning illness. Only you know whether that's true. If it's not, forgive the suspicion. ...Read more

What to do if I have a serious question about heroin?
