Girl Gouges Her Eyes Out While on Meth

Twenty year old Kaylee Muthart was a straight A student, she started to miss lots of school and her grades begun to slip. By age seventeen she became a highschool dropout to try and save her grades for college. By age eighteen she was drinking alcohol socially and smoking pot. She tried to avoid serious drugs because addiction runs in her family. When she was nineteen she was smoking with a buddy of hers when she noticed that this was a new kind of high for her, so when she got home she googled the symptoms. She said that the high made her feel like she had numb lips and feeling like she was on top of the world and strangely close to god.  She thought the pot she smoked was laced with either cocaine or meth and she never really thought of pot as a gateway drug. Since she had got this pot from a friend who was trying to introduce her to new drugs she didn’t want them in her life she distanced herself from him and quit her job. She didn’t have a job and her relationship with her boyfriend quickly began to end, she started to drink alcohol and smoke pot more, then started taking Xanax. After that she was soon diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She soon got a new job and lost her boyfriend and a series of friends, she was lonely and unhappy. She remembered how she felt on laced weed and craved for that happiness and peace again. By the end of August she decided to smoke meth with a buddy. She was up for three days and was experiencing hallucinations she wasn’t expecting,  when she looked in the mirror she saw blackheads oozing out of her face and picked at her skin tell she was bleeding. When her roommate dropped her off at work she was too afraid to go inside because of her welts, after missing a few days of work she lost her job. She took a video of what she was like on the drug and was freaked out because the girl in the video was a different her. After that she steered clear of meth but felt so low that she asked one of her roommates who dealt drugs for ecstasy. When she got it she took it twice a day, while on the drug she studied the bible and convinced herself that meth would bring her closer to god. So she began to sniff, smoke, and even shoot meth by herself or with friends. One night she shot up a larger dose of meth than normal, she wandered off to a church where she began to convince herself that she had to sacrifice something important to her to right the world. She thought that if she didn’t everything would end terribly and everyone would die if she didn’t tear her eyes out. Then she began to rip them out immediately and felt it was one of the hardest struggles in her life, the drugs she was on numbed her pain. Soon a pastor heard her screaming “ I want to see the light!” he later told her that when he found her she was still holding her eyes in her hand and squished them. When paramedics arrived they had to sedate her with ketamine.  Now that she can’t see she is very optimistic about everything and her family is very supportive of her, she has joined gofundme.com and once she has raised enough money she will get a seeing eye dog. She says it took losing her eyes to get her off of drugs but in the end she is still glad she is here.
