What I Write

I write about living with chronic illness, cultivating courage, sex and human relationships, badass women and the social issues that affect us, and all of these invisible battles we all fight every day.  The following is my recent work. If you have any questions or would like to reach out to me about guest pieces or contributions, please free free to say hi at lala@lalajackson.com

In addition to articles found on this site, you can find my first book, the internationally best-selling Beyond Powerful: Your Chronic Illness is Not Your Kryptonite on Amazon (eBook available for now, print is coming September 19, 2017!), and I am a contributing writer over on The Mighty.

Outside of writing, I love to speak on issues around chronic illness, mental health, access to healthcare, and more. Check out this special edition of The Eye of Rah Show where we talk about mental health and self-care.
