Like "Hi Joyce! I really appreciate your empowered message here. I have talked with many clients who choose to keep their chronic condition a secret at their jobs. Some have assumed they will be treated differently, or be expected to be less productive or competent, and so they choose not to disclose. While they be making an assumption here, they may also have picked up on the message that this would indeed be a problem for their boss. As you said, non-disclosure can be risky in that your co-workers may not be prepared to provide the help you need if you do have a problem. Those with a supportive leader, who understands their diabetes and wants to help them to be as successful as possible, are fortunate. We need more leaders like that in organizations. I think you have a realistic attitude about what it takes to get ahead in an organization. Unfortunately, most organizations have their share of office politics, and it's up to each employee to do their best possible work while also effectively managing their own careers. I think it's possible to be a really great team player while also preparing for your next role, as you said. I still believe that hard work, supplemented by kindness and respect for others, can lead to success. Being an emotionally intelligent person, being attuned to the emotional state of those around you, can get you a long way at a job, as you suggested. Thanks for checking in. "
