Well, I have in the past, not told them what was going on. Sometimes, I would just quit a job when I missed too much time. Not to good of an approach probably.
In my most recent cycle, I made some mistakes at work. Was having the headaches building in tempo and just didn't realize it until it got so bad that it screwed me up at work. I quit, then went to another company. I told that employer about the CH's and what he could expect. I kept working until it became just to excrutiating and emberassing and I took a weeks leave of absence. He just had no respect for me or the CH ordeal after that. Always rode my ass about one minute late or whatever stupid crap. I reckon I did not ever attain the position and responsibility that I am used to with him either.
So, that has been my experience. I think if you have a good supervisor or boss and have good benefits that will provide you with the preventative and abortive meds that a CH'er really needs then maybe it's ok. I don't know. Remember that they are usually just looking at the bottom line.
I probably won't tell next time.
