“I’ve been diagnosed for many years, and my medication is something I use to be able to live my life normally. Without it, I struggle a lot with reading comprehension, finishing my thoughts, losing things continuously throughout the day and my general perception of time. That can be really difficult, and my medication brings me back to a place where I can have more control over my life and correct some of that in my brain.”

I got 7 interviews deep for a role in-house at a company that I'd really like to work for. They said they'd keep me in mind for future openings in the department. It's been 4 months and I haven't heard about any opening roles. They do have a role that is tangentially related to my skill-set (would be a stretch for me, but maybe in a good way?), but I'm concerned that shooting for this and missing might reflect badly for an opening that would be more in my wheelhouse. Thoughts?
