All of the luck worked! I finally have a job with a company that doesn't care about my disability and is happy to work with me!

And if anyone new to the thread is interested...

In my cover letter I gave very specific examples of how I met each of the "required" attributes of the job spec. For anything where I didn't have that specific skill I explained how something I'd done was similar. The interviews were very skills example heavy. And I wore a black shift dress w/ suit jacket and flat Mary Jane shoes (since I can't wear heels) to both interviews.  ;D  Now comes the fun of asking for the specific adjustments I need, but they shouldn't be a problem.

It's maternity cover for 12 months and not overly technical, but hopefully a foot in the door to the health care side of things :)

You never know! The person you're covering for might decide they aren't actually interested in coming back at all! OR they might look to keep you anyways!

I'd guess %50 of the people who leave on maternity never come back.
