I would definately not take the promotion if I were you, you may have to explain why if you end up turning it down but it is better to keep the job you can do even if it is all you can do to do it than to get a promotion and suddenly be unable to do your job. I have no idea what to tell you about
telling your boss, it is a touchy area because supposedly they can't discriminate but some will (sometimes without realizing it). You boss has already noticed something is up though so a quick discussion might be in order so that he/she doesn't think you are partying at the expense of your job- sometimes they assume the worst about
you when they don't know what is really happening. I am unable to work but I have more than just lupus going on and my health has always been delicate.
