When I was first diagnosed, I thought about it all the time. I was also very frustrated because the treatments (diet and exercise, and then oral meds) didn't work, and it's hard to be conscientious about a treatment that isn't working.
Then, when I went on insulin, things got better, and I got on a diabetes email list, where a lot of my questions were answered.
Over the years (almost 20) I've gotten used to it. But the beginning of this year, I was extremely depressed, and let my management slip, and ended up in a coma. So now, I'm thinking about it a lot again, because I never want to be in the hospital with a coma again!
I only WORRY about my Diabetes, when I either do a BG test (I hate pricking my fingers), or inject my insulin. I guess I just hate abusing my old body! Otherwise, it's only in the back of my mind. I DO know the seriousness of the disease, but I have other medical problems too, so I try and combine all of it, with Diabetes #2 at the top of the list.
