This is just really bizarre. I don't even know what to say. "...A man who received a heart transplant 12 years ago and later married the donor's widow died the same way the donor did, authorities said: of a self-inflicted gunshot wound..." http://news.aol.com/health/story/ar/_a/suicide-links-heart-donor-recipient/20080407082009990001

I read about that the other day. It is too horrible to comprehend. At first I thought maybe the wife was really cruel, but that was just a fleeting thought. Then I started thinking perhaps he started to feel psychological stress from having gone through a transplant, then a year later meeting and marrying the donor's wife. Sometimes Post Traumatic Stress Disorder takes time to kick in. The widow is probably going through her own PTSD now.
