And to evoke "strokes of fatigue, a sleep that occurs irreparably and terrible". "I am in a place where nobody sees that I am sick". But, "there is as much Parkinson as patients," she says, before explaining that his "is associated with the syndrome of dementia Léwy: a mixture of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's". The former weather presenter compares her situation to a cyclone. "In the eye of the hurricane, nothing happens, the wind has fallen, no restlessness, but all around, the most violent winds are moving, a terrifying danger surrounds me and at the same time, I am at a place where no one sees that I am sick. " The sister of François Laborde also recounts his loss of memory, "the difficulty to find his words, to be able to continue writing in losing the meaning of my sentences". "Patients feel completely isolated" Her illness, Catherine Laborde also tells Sunday in the TF1 Sept à Huit, a first extract was published Saturday.

For the first time, she recounts her cohabition with this enemy on a daily basis.
