Welcome to Reality Gasps. My name is Lori and I have pulmonary fibrosis. I am also the mom of two teenagers, a writer, sci-fi fan, and lover of fresh food, unpretentious wines and furry shih tzus with a parrot complex. I studied Journalism at Northwestern, which meshed perfectly with my natural curiosity. And, while I abandoned journalism for the corporate world decades ago, I have dusted off my investigative skills and put them to work learning all I can about PF.
My goals are simple: to share everything I learn so others may benefit, to laugh as much as possible, and to kick some serious PF ass along the way. I hope this is a very long ride. Now, who wants shotgun?
