Pain is exhausting.

Emotional of physical, it’s definitely a bummer. It hurts. It threatens everything we hold dear. It requires way too many conversations about feelings and symptoms and challenges and struggles.

But it also can be an excellent teacher. And it highlights the beautiful moments in life as that much more real and vibrant and immediate and hella worth living. And I find many, many beautiful moments in life.

So I was extremely excited to speak about them on Callie Dixon’s Chronically Well podcast as one in her “kickass women” series .

About the episode, from Callie: Jacqueline has struggled with chronic illness since she was a child. She began her career as an actress and had to make adjustments due to her illness, but she is evidence of a someone living a beautiful life despite her struggle. Her curiosity for the way we behave and think and feel has manifested into food writing, journalism, lifestyle interview, and podcasting.
