Because lupus is an invisible illness with a wide range of symptoms that mimic so many other conditions, this great imitator leaves those who treat it and suffer from it quite “Puzzled”. The “Butterfly” is the symbol used to represent lupus . Just like the fluttering of the butterfly; lupus is erratic. Taking dips and dives that almost look out of control but their strength of resilience is undeniable. As the butterfly develops within its cocoon, so shall those with lupus emerge from the confines of this disease.
