The age old question

So yay for me I have my first job interview in person from this round of job hunting :). It will be on Friday and the phone conversation was all great until the “awkward” question, from me, regarding disabled parking and step-free access.

Parking wasn’t a problem but the gent sounded very uneasy about the steps thing until I explained that I’m not in a chair but use walking sticks and so the small lift and single step would be ok.

Now as I say this is ok for me, for now, but do I consider whether this would be a problem going forward? Do I tell them I could only work 4 days per week now or only if they offer me a job?

Do I tell them that fibro fog can make memory recall difficult to me?

This is why the vast majority of roles I have applied for are secretarial as I am very comfortable with those roles, but this is a data based role (my degree is in computing) and so I am much more nervous about whether I can still do it.

Only one way to find out I guess, but any comments welcome please.
