I am 31 and you can see my dx list below. It took me several years and a lawyer but I am on disability now. I am actually up for review I dunno why since I only started getting disability a year and a half ago- I actually get SSI cause I was short on the points for SSDI. I wish I could get SSDI on my hubby's account cause my check would be bigger and stable but they say I can't unless he dies and I prefer having him around to losing him and having a stable check. Besides we haven't been married 10 years yet which is the minimum to get benifits if he died. Lovely system they have isn't it? Well, I hope someone with MCTD comes along who can offer advice my only advice is make sure your doctors are on your side, get RFC forms from them, get a lawyer, and hang in there cause it is a long process.
