Flight of the Butterfly Julie Ricano
I was 26 when my pain started. I went to endless doctors and they all would tell me it was all in my head that it was a mental one.
Thanksgiving day I sat down and out of nowhere I got a fever of 102 and became paralyzed. I stayed home because I thought I was going crazy.
The pain on my legs and my muscles was overwhelming.
I decided to go to a vascular doctor. When I went to take off my shoes, he only saw the bottom of my feet. In his words, he told me go to Mercy Hospital. He stated, “I know what you have, but will tell you after its confirmed. “
The next day he told me, “you have SLE,” my world as I knew it ended FEBRUARY 14,1991.
