Woman Who Gouged Her Eyes Out While High On Crystal Meth Says She Needed To Do it To Get Off Drugs

The South Carolina woman who gouged her eyes out while in a crystal meth-induced psychotic state is speaking out on why she did it.

On February 6, Kaylee Muthart, 20, was found with her eyes ripped out of her head outside of outside of South Main Chapel and Mercy Center. She fought off help from the locals and had to be sedated by paramedics before she was flown to the Greenville Memorial Hospital trauma unit.

Doctors were unable to reattach her eyes and and was forced to tell Muthart’s mother, Katy Tompkins, her daughter had become completely blind.

After a month-long stay at the hospital and a psychiatric facility, Muthart was finally released on March 1, where she returned to her mother’s house. She said while it’s an adjustment to living without sight, it’s significantly better than living on drugs.

“It’s the same life, but I’m just learning everything in a new way,” Muthart told PEOPLE. “Life’s more beautiful now, life’s more beautiful than it was being on drugs. It is a horrible world to live in.”

Muthart said she started smoking pot when she was 18 years old, but because she suspected she was prone to addiction, she tried to stay away from hard drugs.

She said when she was 19, she was given marijuana that was laced with either cocaine or meth. Furious at the person she thought was her friend, she quit her job and to distance herself from negative influences.  

8 Reasons Why Your Eyelid Keeps Twitching So You Can Finally Make It Stop

It’s one of the most annoying things that can happen to you. It seems to happen without warning and nothing makes it go away except for time. What are we talking about? Eye twitching of course!

Having your eyelid start to twitch out of nowhere is so annoying. You have no idea why it happens, it doesn’t seem to stop no matter what you do, and worst of all, it feels like everyone can see it happening.

But why is it happening? Well, good news is, almost all of the reasons why your eyelid twitches are completely benign and not usually a serious medical issue. However, it’s incredibly frustrating and if you want it to stop, it’ll help to know why it’s happening. Here are the most common causes.

The most common cause is a fairly obvious one. If you are incredibly tired, you may experience an increase in the frequency of eye twitches. Get some rest, and your eye may finally stop its annoying dance moves.

It you spend a lot of time staring at computers, then dry eyes are something that you will be very familiar with. It’s not the only reason why dry eyes may be an issue for you, it can also be caused by wearing contacts or taking medications that can have dry eyes as a side effect. Whatever the reason why your eyes have become dry, you can often use eye drops to help hydrate the surface of your eye and it might help with your persistent twitch.

Sure, drinking coffee is obviously a requirement, but unfortunately, it can lead to an eye twitch that will drive you crazy. Caffeine, which is found in coffee, tea, soft drinks, and even chocolate, can trigger the eyelid to start twitching. If you want it to stop, you may need to cut back on the coffee and get your energy the old fashioned way, sleep!

There are a lot of symptoms that happen to those who smoke, and eye twitching is one of them. Nicotine can increase the frequency of eye twitches, and having smoke right in your face doesn’t help either.

Jennifer Aniston Reveals The Painful Condition She’s Lived With Her Whole Life

With a booming career on TV, in movies, and her own production company, Jennifer Aniston is undeniably one of Hollywood’s most successful actresses.

But Aniston’s fans also wish they could be as healthy and happy with their looks as the actress is at age 48. She’s known for sharing health and exercise tips, including her daily clean eating plan.

That’s why many of the actresses fans will be surprised to learn she’s been battling an invisible health condition for years. Even Aniston didn’t realize it until just a few months ago, when a doctor diagnosed her with chronic dry eyes.

“A couple of years ago I was doing an interview with Bobbi Brown, the makeup artist, and she asked me if I had a bad habit with anything,” Aniston remembers. “As she asked that question I was literally putting an eyedrop in my eye. It was the fifth time in the hour that I used my artificial tears.”

Daily Record

But, like most women, Aniston didn’t assume her dry eyes were a serious medical problem, even though they were painful and uncomfortable.

“It was so painful and irritating!” she said. “I’d literally be going to a premiere and my eyes would be burning and I’d have to give myself a dose of eye drops before I went down the red carpet. But I just thought that was what my eyes were and I had to live with it.”

Now, Aniston is warning other women what to look out for, so they won’t have to suffer like she did.

Woman Nearly Blinded By Eye Herpes Discovers It Was Just Christmas Card Glitter

Now that the holidays have come and gone and things are back to normal, can we talk for a second about Christmas cards?

Card Treasures

Don’t get me wrong, we love Christmas cards. Y’know what we don’t love though? Christmas cards with glitter on them. People, it’s seriously time to stop with these things. I understand that they look pretty and shiny when you see them in the store, and you get all excited for someone to open them up to revel in your card-shopping skills, but that’s not what happens.

What DOES happen is that our hands and just about every other surface in a ten mile radius gets coated in the glitter that’s already been knocked loose from the card being in the mail. Now we not only have to go on the impossible journey of not only washing this crap off of our hands, but vacuuming every surface of the house that’s somehow just been coated in the shiny madness.

This picture is a lie. There is no love here.Ebay

Still don’t see what I’m getting at? Well it turns out that Christmas card glitter can actually cause health problems: a woman from Wales was diagnosed with herpes and suffered a cornea lesion because of a stray piece of glitter…
