What has been paramount in me staying in care is having housing.
At one point I was experiencing homelessness and that was the most difficult time for me, to be able to make it to doctor’s appointments, and just have a place to remember to take my medicine, have water, those things are really basic that you might not consider naturally.
So now being stably housed and having support at home, I feel has been very helpful in making sure that I’m able to stay in care, stay healthy.
This issue is so important to me because if it weren’t for me having housing today I don’t think I would be able to be in care, undetectable viral load.
