    I am so sorry for the problems the steroid has caused. Please follow our posts over on the FMS/CFIDS Board regarding peptide injections. They work for Lupus as well as other immune/autoimmune illnesses. Good luck.

    Love, Mikie

    Prednisone won't kill you or cause your immediate death, but it certainly will take its toll on your body!! It will destroy your bones to the point you will be hip replacements, etc. ... it can also cause diabetes, will cause glaucoma, and more. It's just unfortunate that some people need the steroid in order to breathe, to reduce the inflammation in your body, etc.

    I am so sorry that it has destroyed your body to the point that you are crippled now, are in a lot of pain, and having such a hard time getting around.

    I pray that some day something will be discovered to do the job that prednisone does, but wont do the destruction that it will.

    Take care.
