I think you should tell them....
I would be upset if I had to write on the board where everyone can see that I was in the bathroom....
I agree they might think you are a slaker or something if you do not explain your situation.
good luck....mention the ADA. I think that is no matter the size of the company I think FMLA is the one that the company has to have a certian # of employees.

I am going to tell them. They already know that I have Crohn's cause I had to "cleared" by their doc before I was even allowed to begin there. It's hard cause when I talk to my mom about it she tells me not to say anything and deal with it when I get worse. She's worried they're going to let me go and then I won't have insurance. She's my mom and she worries so it's hard for me cause my mom is my support. I feel that I'll lose her support. I guess I have to take my chances and let them know. If I get fired I guess I'll deal with it!
broomhilda- I like it too! It's very encouraging and helps to know we're not alone!
Well tomorrow's the day I let them know! I'll let you all know how it goes. Thank you all for the support!
