    You could state your line of work before the disability. Just say, "I'm in the 'x' field." If the question follows, "Oh, really? Where do you work?" you can just say, "I'm a contractor between assignments."

    If anyone is interested enough in your field to want to discuss it more, you can relate instances about your work in general, maybe referencing instances from your last job. In other words, the work world needn't become a taboo conversation--you just don't need to disclose details about yourself that you don't wish to share.

    Your medical life is private, and you don't 'owe' anyone an explanation for it.

    Head high.
