Dermatomyositis

In 2007 I was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis. The disease had progressed to the point that I was unable to move on my own or swallow. Today, however, I am drug free, but not completely cured. In the beginning I addded changes to my diet, a supplements and high doses of prednisone. Thankfully, within a few months they brought me back to a normal life. There were several other medications that my doctor recommended I take. I decided against them and I am thankful that I was able to continue without them. I dont know what the answers are beyond seeking the Lord and allowing Him to direct you to better health, giviing your body nutrients, minerals and anti-oxidants, and removing as much sugar from your diet as you can. In 2007 I couldnt find any information regarding Dermatomyositis and was surprised to find you all today (I looked on this site years earlier). I heard a holistic doctor say, “auto-immune diseases have risen 80% since the late 80’s. I hope you are all better today than when you posted your writings!!!

Thank you Vicki S. The Grace of God and prayer is the only way I have lived this far with this disease. Going on my 9th year! Still have good days and bad starting getting this little twitch in my muscles these last few months. My lungs are the same still on oxygen, but you do not give up and you keep going forward!
