therearemiracles.... I think your positive feelings and faith should be
open to and accept the fact that you do have UC and it's lifelong. Not a death sentence, however. Please don't set yourself up for failure by testing your "faith" by going off your meds.
I strongly suspect you may believe yourself a failure somehow if you go off your meds and flare again.
Does your book explain self-fulfilling prophecies? They work on all degrees of results.
