A few words of warning from some-one who has done the grad school thang:
1. get a rolling cart, or something to tote books, so you do not put excess stress on your body.
2. Make a schedule and keep it.
3. Take frequent breaks. I used to set an egg timer and take a break when it went off. I also kept to-do lists, and broke up tasks, so that computer time would be balanced with reading, etc...
4. treat yourself nice.
I am glad you told them. My program knew, as well. However, the employers do not... not sure how to bring it up before Tenure.
