The more you ask, the more she may protect your feelings. You do have limitations as to what you can do for her... she has to learn the process of what works best for her on her own. She'll possibly at times be rebellious as we all tend to be regarding meds, eating, advice and just general regimens.
It sounds as though she has what it takes, with your support from within and afar...allowing her the space is what she will need...for she may not be focussing on it as much as you.
Curious...how old is your other daughter and what's her perspective on her sister's newly diagnosed UC? How has her behaviour
been regarding your focus?
I have no doubt you will find the accepting middle ground...it takes time, allow it.
