'Tis the Season for Adherence: Holiday Tips for Living Well With HIV
By Mathew Rodriguez From TheBody.com
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Eva Hansen is HIV positive and loves to travel. In a video interview with TheBody.com, Eva told us, "If there's a plane leaving, I want to be on it!" She travels so much with her meds that she has a lot of tips on how to adhere when you're not in your own home:
"Some of my drugs need to be refrigerated, or kept on ice. So I found a way to cold-pack them and wrap them really well and put them in my suitcase. Or, some places I go, I just take the prescription bottles with me in a separate [case], and I also take a letter from my doctor saying that she has prescribed these medications for me, and her number, in case I have any trouble travelling."
