Don't let disability stop you from becoming an anaesthetist. Doctors with physical or mental health conditions can make excellent health workers and often have the benefit of being able to empathise more with patients.
The Equality Act 2010 is there to help stop you being discriminated against. The act ensures that employers have a duty to make adjustments in the workplace for staff with disabilities.

After changing into theatre scrubs, another day of anaesthetic work ahead of me, I go to the anaesthetic room to start preparing my drugs. Not too long ago, all this looked impossible.
