Your mother would have needed to be infected for you to be born with it. And your entire childhood would have been spent on medications and being tested.

HIV is transmitted one of three ways:

1.) Unprotected receptive or insertive anal sex, unprotected receptive or insertive vaginal sex, and (rarely) receptive oral sex.

2.) Needlestick exposure-Blood to blood contact through either sharing needles or occupational exposure.

3.) Mother to infant

Life is meant for living, not fearing.
