Angie...first of all, WELCOME BACK!!!
In answer to your question....diabetes, regardless of the type, never goes away. It can be so well controlled as to give the impression that it has gone away....but it is nevertheless still "there". Be that as it may, you learn to live with it, and not let it control YOU. That takes time....but you have shown yourself to be proactive, and THAT is paramount! We are all here for you sweetie. One has to be "wired" to acquire diabetes, I would not be surprised if all the stress you've endured was the trip switch that set it in motion. I know that stress was indeed a factor in my case.
