A slip of the foot you may soon recover,
but a slip of the tongue you may never get over.
Yes I had applied and it took me 3 1/2 years to get it and was denied 2 times and then in front of the ADA Judged I had a major attack but yes I did have lawyer with me, but for me it was a long process and I even know of some that have taken longer and ended up quiting to get it but for some they got it right off the bat.
But there is a site somewhere under SSD that tells you how to apply with the do's and don't when applying for SSD I just don't recall the sites name but there.
Here is the site. http://www.ssa.gov/d&s1.htm.
I have never applied but if your physician thinks you should go for it.
I think your right on by applying and if I am not mistaken, they pay back to the date of the original filing when they approve you. Don't quote me on that one. :)
Hopefully yours will be straight forward.
Hugs to you
