I’m still uncertain as to when I contracted HIV. I’m in a long-term, loving marriage and am far from the stereotype people may have in their minds about ‘the sort of person’ who gets HIV. In fact, the only moment I can imagine in my life that I was open to HIV was when I went to a dentist’s surgery in Jamaica: I underwent a procedure there involving a needle, and I’ve reason to believe they didn’t sterilise it properly. It was just a terrible accident.
