I took social security at 62 not knowing how progressive my multiple sclerosis might become. I asked at the Social Security office if I could apply for social security disability and I was told it would take a long time. I needed an income so I did not apply for the disability. I have not worked for 3 years. I was recently told I could apply for social security disability now. Would I be able to do this? I have multiple sclerosis, restless legs, high blood pressure controlled and diabetes controlled with diet. Thank you.Linda Dickerson
