Day 24: Choose a health mascot for your condition.
Lupus already has a mascot. It's a purple butterfly. I like it, because we get "butterfly" rashes (malar rashes). It makes sense. I don't know why the color purple was chosen. But I like the color purple, too. It works.
Butterflies are delicate, like us Lupies are. We can say we're tough and in control, but the truth is our health is a delicate balance that anything can crush. But we're also resilient, just like the butterfly.
