I was recently diagnosed with health issue with diagnosis results saying 'Strong Suspect" for tuberculosis. Although my diagnosis doesn't say that I am positive for tuberculosis, the physician has started my treatment with anti tuberculosis treatment.
This is an extrapulmonary tuberculosis, means it is not contagious and there is no harm to people around me. Also this was early stage detection hence I haven't even developed any symptoms. Most likely I will be recovered in 3 to 4 months.
This doesn't affect my work abilities at present and due to work from home I am anyway not in physical contact with my work colleagues. However, most of the Indians have seen bad phases of tuberculosis and there is social stigma attached with this illness.
People still think that tuberculosis automatically relates to death and they keep their distance from infected people. Keeping all the things in mind, I am little hesitant to inform this condition to my employer. Requesing the peers on this platform to guide me dealing with it professionally.
