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.”
