Our new member Cat Lady has a question for you:

Hi Everyone. I am the Cat Lady. I would really like to talk to someone who has polymyositis and interstitial lung disease. My lung disease is getting worse. Really do not want to go back on prednisone (I was on this for 8 years). Wondering what other people with this disease are doing. I do not quite qualify for oxygen.

Please leave a comment on her page:

Hi, Cat Lady:

I do have Polymyositis and ILD. I was on Prednisone for 5 years and found it to be the best way to control the Lung Disease.

I still take prednisone to control flareups occasionally and find I can taper down quickly. The ILD is not much of a concern now.
