I came to know about HIV right here in the United States. But I thought I'd never catch that. I had a friend at work who was very skinny, and I kept telling him, 'You've got AIDS,' teasing, 'You've got AIDS, AIDS, AIDS.' And now look at me: I'm the one who's got it.

I blame liquor, drinking.

I drank a lot and went out at night for some mischief, you know what I mean? To be with other women. And I got this on the street.

I blame myself. I did this to myself , because of the bottle. I was almost 19.
