  • I had a very dear friend who was HIV+, gay male. He had tripple bypass and 3 weeks later, tried heroin while partying. He died in the bed, in a sitting position with head hung, bleeding from eyes, ears. It hurts me so much to type this but it is real. It may not help with your research but it is a testimony to what is possible with the linking of the heart to heroin.
