Injecting crystal meth into breast, red and purple and painful

Jul 29, 2014

I have injected crystal Meth in my breast before but this time it is real, real tender and red and purple.

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Thanks for writing. Any time there is tenderness or red or purple discoloration at the injection site you should seek medical treatment immediately. I assume your other veins are shot. In any case, injecting crystal meth is dangerous and will negatively impact your HIV status.

You might find useful information in this guide from the Harm Reduction coalition.

Take care and be safe,
