Greetings. KathyMagee, and welcome. You asked:

<<I am in the process of filing with private insurance disability and also Social Security because of a chronic and eventually fatal liver disease. Do you know if the Social Security has a list of conditions that automatically get disability the first time. If so, how could I see the list? I have heard you have to apply several time to be accepted. >>

You have my sympathies for your physical problems. I know of no list that automatically results in approval of SS benefits; However, you can determine the requirements for approval at the SSA site at this link: http://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/handbook/handbook.05/hbk-0507.htm.
