Member says Myositis group is comfort

It is so comforting to hear stories of others who were stuck… And overcame! The stories of others who are in the same boat now, of fighting to reduce [prednisone], are strength to me. This group and the people in it… Hero’s to me and my lifeline to deal with something no one gets … But us. Thank you all for making me feel “normal”!
