Helping raise awareness of Myositis

Welcome to Myositis Now.

Being diagnosed with Myositis can be very difficult to cope with because it’s not a common disease. If you have been diagnosed with Polymyositis, Dermatomyositis or IBM, one of the best things to do is educate yourself about the disease and so you can overcome the challenges that come with it.

The purpose of this website is educate, inspire, and bring hope to people who have or dealing with Myositis.  This is a website where patients can read about treatment options/tips based on my experience with the disease.

I was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis in 2007.  I hope my experiences will help you to cope and learn about different treatment options. If you have any ideas to improve this website or any feedback, please e-mail
