advice please?

I don't know how many people actually read this thing anymore but for anyone who is out there, I'm asking for some advice: If you had lupus that was somewhat under control and you were at a new job, would you let your employer know about your situation? Keep in mind, doctor's appointments are pretty much AT LEAST a monthly event for people living with this condition.

I am trying to decide whether or not I have finally come to a point where I need to tell my manager about my condition so she will understand why I have so many doctor's appointments even though I am still in my "probation period" (obviously a time during which normal people would try with every fiber of their being not to miss work for any reason they could avoid). So far I have been sick pretty much all of this week, other than Monday, going in for a couple hours Tuesday morning, half day yesterday and going in for 30 minutes this morning...I've had two doctor's appointments, not including the one yesterday, and I have one coming up next week and then back onto the monthly schedule...

BUT, I haven't had a serious flare since I started on the treatment and all in all I've been doing quite well...It's just I need to constantly be checked up on by my doctors and I am slightly more susceptible to getting sick because of the medication I'm on. Is this what I should tell them? I don't know. My mom is worried about discrimination, but other people are telling me if I actually tell them then that would protect me a little bit more...I don't know.

Blah. I hate having this monkey on my back.
