Meth Triggers Tragic Blinding
A girl from South Carolina gouged her eyes out while high on meth. In a new interview she says she was attempting to get closer to God.
As reported by the Washington Post, there was a message from God, 20-year old Kaylee Muthart believed, that she needed to sacrifice something special.
Muthart was high on methamphetamine, a freight train of a dose bigger than all the others, and the signs were all there. A white bird along a dark path. A man with a biblical name asking for a key. Muthart was looking for personal salvation, but she also wanted to save the world.
“I thought everything would end abruptly, and everyone would die,” Muthart told Cosmopolitan, “if I didn’t tear out my eyes immediately.”
She did. And for the first time since the Feb. 6 incident in Anderson, S.C., Muthart is explaining how she went from being an honor student to becoming a drug user who fought off several men trying to subdue her as the remains of her sea-green eyes dangled from her head.
Muthart was a good student in high school, she told the magazine. But a focus on work to save money for a car and issues with an irregular heartbeat led to poor school performance. She dropped out and soon turned to alcohol and other substances.
