This is really a reply to the South African runner's comment.
I am in a very similar situation to yourself in that I reported to the Doctor in January 2005 with a cough and shortness of breath.
I'm 48 and until a 2 -3 years ago ran half marathons regularly.
usual interstitial pneumonia / fibrosing alveolitis. I'm just dropping my prednisolone dose from 40 mg to a maintenance dose of 15mg and upping the azathioprine from 50 to 75 (eventually 150 mg).
I find the info available on the net to be at best too simple and at worst extremely alarming. There seems to be no good news out there.
I for one feel Ok. Sure I get short of breath and sure all the test results say I've got this thing, but on a day to day basis I certainly don't feel like I'm going to be dead in three years.
So, like you I am looking for more positive information.
I would echo your last sentence.
