SC woman removed her own eyes as a sacrifice to God

SC woman removed her own eyes as a sacrifice to God

"Thankfully, as time progresses, with much support and her therapy, we can help her to understand that things that she was seeing and thinking at that time, were not true or real".

On Feb. 6, Muthart, 20, was found ripping out her eyes in front of a SC church Feb. 6.

She gouged her own eyes out. He held her hand. Despite her violent delirium, a team of local deputies were eventually able to restrain her long enough to transport her to a trauma unit.

Kaylee Muthart, 20, blinded herself while under the influence of methamphetamine.

'That was a struggle. Later, I googled the symptoms that surprised me the most - numb lips and feeling like I was on top of the world. "I'm blind, I'm blind", Muthart said.

'It's a terrible thing, but I'm still thankful because God spared her life, ' she added. We have started a GoFundMe to rasie funds to get her a service dog.

"I thought everyone who had died was stuck in their graves, that God was up in Heaven alone, and that I had to sacrifice something important to be able to release everyone in the world to God. I'd always been a religious Christian; the high made me feel particularly close to God". A few months later, she began using meth by choice.

"I proceeded to pull out my eyes with my bare hands and twisted them, and pulled them, and popped them, " she told PEOPLE.

"I want to spread my story, Muthart said to the (Anderson) Independent Mail". She has run into things at home and has trouble sleeping.

On the night of February 5, she injected what she now believes was tainted meth into her body. Imported methamphetamine is more potent than the type that used to be made from ingredients available at any grocery or drug store. It is a disgusting world to live in, ' she added.

"I don't know how I'm getting through it, but she has given me strength", Tompkins said. Tompkins "can't even explain how it feels".


Doctored believe that the meth that Muthart, above, took may have been laced with another chemical.

High on drugs she fought off people trying to help her before being rushed to Greenville Memorial Hospital where doctors told her mom Katy Tompkins that her daughter had lost her vision. She said: "That was a struggle".

Tests of her blood afterward showed methamphetamine was in her system but have been inconclusive about other additives, her mother said.

She had taken a large dose of meth before the incident, which apparently made her think gouging her eyes would bring her closer to God. She started using meth about six months prior to the accident.

For a time, Muthart managed to limit her intake of narcotics, but she left her job one day because she was too "embarrassed" about the fact that she had picked her face raw while on a meth trip.

She recalled feeling a high that she never experienced before. She is adjusting to her surroundings but overall she's doing well. She then left her job and the co-workers.

She said she would have probably tried to claw out her brain out as well if a pastor had not heard her screaming 'I want to see the light!' and intervened. "I was scared. I was super scared to go to the rehab. It took me to get my eyes out of my head to see anything good happening to me".

Part of her recovery includes learning Braille.

In an interview with People magazine, Kaylee said playing the guitar has not been a hard transition and she recently learned a new song. Because of this drug-induced frenzy, Muthart is now blind.

Kaylee's family are using her story to warn others of the dangers of drugs. I'm Kaylee Jean Muthart, just like I was 10 years ago.

She realized that someone had to sacrifice something to "right the world, and that person was me". Tompkins has launched a fundraising campaign to get Muthart a guide dog once she is out of the hospital.
