Hi all! So I've been creeping around these threads and finally figured I'd post my own timeline so far. My MEB is for Bipolar II and PTSD as the primary conditions among other things claimed.

08/15/23 - MH provider (off-base) puts in for MEB
10/18/23 - NARSUM c/w by MH
01/23/24 - CIS (DNR)
02/12/24 - FL4 comes back (Full MEB)
02/14/24 - Init meeting w/ MSC
02/21/24 - 1st C&P
03/28/24 - Last C&P

I'm excited to see where this goes! Will update as things come up.
 
Talked to my MSC 4 weeks ago and filed my claims, still no exam dates. How did your C&P exams go? I've heard some get scheduled really far away.

Thankfully everything was within a good distance, ~20-30 minutes from work/home. I did pull one claim (stigmatism) because it takes and was taking forever to get scheduled.
My exams went well, everyone I spoke to was cool esp the one who did my head to toe. She helped me out with verbiage so I get the most bang from my buck. Be honest about your conditions and how they affect you on your worst of days is the emphasis. You can call the VES number to see what the hold up is on your appointments, and to let them know you're cool with attending appointments within a 24-48hr notice if you're cool with that.

05/14/24 - All C&P's uploaded to TOL

I had to bother my MSC on a weekly basis via e-mail and phone and confirm with VES on 4 separate occasions that they had submit my DBQ's to the VA. Finally, last week, my MSC had a "DBQ liaison" look into my situation and ta-da! All my stuff is in, now! Sometimes you have to advocate for yourself and remain persistent to get results when you've fallen through the cracks. Something about squeaky wheels getting grease.
