Talking Re: disability

I was actually diagnosed with CMT at age 30. I am now 44. My MDA doctor actually just made me quit working after all these years. I sent in all my test results and doctors reports and applied for my disability, after only two weeks I had been approved. So, yes, I believe that you will be able to get disability.
Best of Luck!
