    They will contact you in their own sweet time. It might take a while. I found those first steps were quicker than later on waiting.

    It is going to take a long time to hear anything and they will deny the first one. They almost always do. But keep going.

    I don't know your case and have not read your bio yet. All depends on your problems.

    I first filled out an application in 02 and am still waiting word on the final decision. I am 20% worse now than I was then, due to additional back pain/injury by mere everyday movement/lifting. I rarely go anywhere now.

    PS: Sorry to be such a downer. Patience is a virtue.
