Why butterflies? To me, the butterfly is a symbol of what
people with OCD can become. We are caterpillars with great potential. I spent years as a
caterpillar; functional, but not living up to my potential. With the onset of
obsessive-compulsive disorder, I entered my cocoon. I isolated myself from others because
of shame, embarrassment and secrecy. With treatment and education, I am becoming the
butterfly I was meant to be.
