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.
