Kaylee has given up drugs and she has learnt to use brail. She now plans to go back to school to get her high school diploma, and then an associates degree.

She said: “Coming off meth was awful, physically and mentally, there were hallucinations and psychosis, but I overcame it, thanks to God.”

Kaylee added that she has started writing a book about her experience, and will soon have a guide dog to help her navigate the world.
