Intro - LaWanda

Hello, my name is LaWanda Wilkerson. I have been HIV positive for three years this past April. The way I found out has changed my whole life and I am definitely not the same person I was three years ago.

The day I found out I was HIV positive I will never forget. I had just gotten back from bus duty. I had a message on my phone from my doctor’s office. I thought it was no big deal, so I called back. The next words were deafening. "You are HIV positive. We have sent your file to the clinic that deals with infectious diseases." That was it.

In 2005 the Women and HIV Think Tank changed its name to WRI to reflect the work of the group and ongoing commitment to measurable results in the management of HIV disease in women.

Did you just test positive for HIV? Look here for help on next steps, normal feelings, and finding support.
