Chelsea herself is not currently taking any medication to treat her HIV. “I took medicine while I was pregnant each time, but I just felt like I wasn’t ready to be as compliant as I should be,” she says. “However, in the last few months I’ve decided it’s time I start looking at my medicine options.” That’s a message she stresses to her clients, too: “I encourage people to get themselves ready for the commitment, but I also stress that if they’re not ready, they’ll do more damage to their body in the long run than they would if they just wait.”
From what we learn, Chelsea is such a brave woman. She makes us believe to take care of ourselves and the ones we love, because no matter what, that's what we need the most: people's love and support to keep us alive.
