  • Day 28 of #30DaysofPD: The Circus That Has Become My Life

    Posted by Kevin Schaefer on April 29, 2022 at 10:45 am

    This is Lori DePorter’s story.

    Lori compares living with PD to life in the circus. There’s the unpredictability, the chaos, and the constant interruptions. Through it all, she’s grateful for the community of people along with her for the ride.

    Here’s an excerpt, “So I guess I am the clown car. I put on a happy face. I keep appearing over and over while doing my best to keep everyone entertained. Do I succeed? Yes and no. Life with Parkinson’s is ever-changing. It’s a three-ring circus — jump in and see where you land.”

    Can you relate to Lori’s story?

    Lori DePorter writes the “Life, Lemons, and Lemonade” column for Parkinson’s News Today.
