I agree with many of the comments above. When I am in remission, I really only think of UC when I take my pills. The daily pill regimen serves as a constant reminder. When I am flaring, though, I think of UC all the time - obsess over it, even. It's like Sherry said, the less I feel, the less it enters my mind.
I think this ability to let it go has come with time. When I was first diagnosed, I thought about my UC non-stop, even when I felt good and had no symptoms. I've just become more comfortable with my diagnosis over time and have learned to put it down.
I've never dreamt about my UC... although I rarely dream. If I do dream, I rarely remember them. So, I guess I could be dreaming about it and just not remembering the dreams.
