Sheila Muhammad tested HIV positive in 1990, when she was just 26 years old and pregnant with her third child.
She was shocked, angry and scared. HIV wasn’t something she thought she was at risk for.
“It wasn’t something I was doing,” Muhammad said.
But her husband had tested positive while in treatment for intravenous drug use.
“It took me a long time to know that he was on the drugs,” Muhammad said. “And then I didn't know enough about it. I didn't educate myself to even know that the two went together.”
