Is there hope?

Hi guys, I am new to this but I was diagnosed with dermatomyositis in Nov. of 2001. I have not been able to get this disease under control. At the time I am having an aggressive attack and like some of you am battling the weight loss and difficulty swallowing. I am on methotrexate and prednisone. Is there any hope of ever being able to control this disease?
