Thank you Chelsea

Thank you for this community. Thank you for these conversations. Thank you for talking about trauma. Thank you for showcasing the commonality and struggles that we as a human race face everyday, celebrity or not, this podcast has shown me that abuse and human suffering is not separated by celebrity or fame. This podcast has made me to feel less alone. Thank you.
