Dear Brenda, No, I have never applied for long term disability for myself, but I did for my step-son but his was an easier case (brain tumor at 5 years old and IQ of 45) The only thing I do know is that you start and don't give up. Appeal, appeal, appeal. Get information, and get more information. Start now, don't delay, Each day makes it later and later. So Good luck and prayers and hugs, Love, Sally Grigg
