Just answer all of the questions honestly.
neuropathy is pain and sometimes pain is only in your mind. Since you have still have neuropathy they obviously haven't found a way to control the pain with medicine so they are going to ask the psychiatrist for his opinion on the origin of your neuropathy. They will pay you based on the amount of your disability. If the pain is intractable then you will be deemed more disabled than simple diabetes would warrant and I am NOT saying diabetes is simple! However, in the eyes of the S.S. diabetes is manageable. I would be open and forthcoming in disclosing the amount and severity of pain with tthe doctors. If it's always 9 out of 10 then say so. If it's mostly 5 out of 10 but, you can't sit for long periods even at that pain level then say that. Good luck.
P.S. Have you tried Gabapentin? It can work miracles.
say the LEAST possible..
Be honest and answer their questions to the best of your ability. If you don't know, then just say you don't know. Don't give out too much information. Tell them of your complication with diabetes, and how it affects your ability to live a normal life. Also all the pain you have from neuropathy.
If they are sending you to a mental health doctor, they are checking to see if you have the mental capacity to work. They
will take into consideration what the doctor reports, but will determine your disability by their own laws and rules.
The main thing is not to give up. If they turn you down just appeal time and time again. Finally you will go before a Judge and he will take a look at all your medical records, any witnesses such as a doctor or family member that is aware of your health conditions. If you are having trouble being able to do your job or missing days at work because of your illness.
He may also ask you some questions.

Both of the doctors Socal Security sent me to agreed that I was totally diabled.Yet, they turned me down. I kept on appealing. When I went before the judge, he told me that day that I would get my Social Security.
