Butterfly Paragraph Submission, By Jody Turek
Growing up I wasn’t really a Butterfly enthusiast. I didn’t have a net to catch them or have them on my “big girl” bedding. I had Holly Hobby instead. After being diagnosed and hearing the Thyroid Gland described as Butterfly shape really was first time I remember being intrigued by them. Since then I seem to gravitate to anything involving butterflies. I always have to look at Pictures, magnets, postcards and anything else with Butterflies. I currently have butterflies on my Blog, Twitter page and my Podcast logo. While I haven’t purchased anything with butterflies on it, every time I see one I pause and think about my Thyroid, sometimes even causing me to bring my hand to my neck. Intricate colored ones remind me of how much the thyroid gland does for the body. It’s the first thing I say when explaining it to others where it is and what it does. In a way it makes my disease beautiful because everyone holds butterflies in such a positive light. How can you be annoyed by such a pretty thing!
