I'VE HAD AIDS since 1988. Needless to say, I've had to endure quite a bit of pain and suffering over the past several years.A lot of senseless pain and suffering, to say the least.All in exchange for one shot of heroin. That's all it took.I unknowingly shared a dirty needle with one of my cellmates in the Maryland State Penitentiary, and that's all it took to bring me to where I'm at today.I wake up to new physical developments in my body most every day now. These developments are never positive to health nor encouraging to life.
