Dealing with Long-Term Insurance Company

Hello,
This is my first post and I have experienced my second Colloid Cyst. I had my first one about 20 years ago. This time around I have experienced significant memory problems and Hydrocephalus. I was wondering if there are some similar stories? I was forced into leaving my Engineering job of 13 years because of this condition. I am in the fight of my life with a long-term Insurance company. They have scheduled a Cognitive Test, with PSYBAR, a national testing facility that employers are using to evaluate cases.
I have already had three of these tests in the last five years thru my medical provider. They diagnosed me with a "Cognitive Disorder NOS, Moderate" each time. My concern is that this company is attempting to reevaluate to favor the insurance company. Not sure what to expect or what to assume from this request. Anybody having/had a similar experience?
