Be careful.  The Listings are not as easy to meet as they first appear.  Just because a person has a medical condition that is listed in the Blue Book does not mean that medical condition meets the requirements of a particular Listing.  As Fordman stated “you also have to meet the sub categories of that [L]isting.”

VERY few applicants have a medical condition that meets a Listing (maybe someone will do the research); it is an absolute rarity that one person would have medical conditions that meet two Listings, and unheard of that one person would have medical conditions that would meet three or more Listings.  

As Fordman stated “you also have to meet the sub categories of that [L]isting.”

I was aproved based on meeting the blue book listing.  I find for some reason I got more depressed because I still had to go through the whole process and it is hard to meet the listing I gave up hope of getting better I am trying to get my hope back.

I was lucky I was approved on a listing only took a year,from start to finish with a 7 year review were I will be in my 60's by then. So I guess I will roll right into regular retirement .
