Long Term Disability Through Employer

Has anyone gone on long term disability through their employer due to Fibro?

She’s a bit older than me (in my mid-20’s) so I’m not in contact with her often, but if I’m able to find out I will share. It’s always been common knowledge in the fam that she has disability thru her old job. I never thought anything of it or what exactly she suffered from (after her car accident many years ago) I just knew she was always in pain since. I found out last year that she developed Fibro from that, when we chatted for awhile after my issues occurred.

hmmm.... I'm wondering how she went about it. At this time I have a doctors note to work 2 days in the office and 3 days at home (full time). I'm not sure if the next step should be working part time or just go for the long term disability.
