The first time, I dislocated and broke my right foot. Two months later, I fell and tore my left Achilles tendon. Three surgeries and three months later, I returned to work in a wheelchair. Two months after that, I transitioned to a walker and eventually a cane. I am now able to walk without assistance, though I do have pain, restricted movement and I'm definitely not as fast as I was before. I still have trouble with stairs but I can manage them.
Here's my question. Now that I'm looking for a new job, should I be indicate on my application that I have a disability? What happens when someone checks the "yes" box?
