Butterfly Paragraph Submission, Written by Erica
It amazes me how butterflies have invaded my life since diagnosis. I have a 5 year old daughter who is absolutely crazy about butterflies. She has several butterfly nets, and even catches moths because if it’s beautiful it must be a butterfly. I have a white polka dotted one in the kitchen right now. It wasn’t until a couple weeks ago though, that I found a parallel between my thyroid and butterflies. I was walking down our dirt lane and came upon a puddle that had started to dry, so it was very sticky mud. In that mud, there were several butterflies stuck, struggling or dead. In that moment I felt like I could identify with the ‘stuck in the mud’ feeling. My struggle with thyroid problems often leaves me feeling stuck. Hopefully I can soon regain my freedom again and feel like a beautiful butterfly.
