The cat poo theory came to me by a doc at a very silly time. It was one of the things that really stuck into my head like a thin spike.
I was homeless until I got pulled into hospital, I was in detox. I was so confused and dazed. I was just trying to pull my head back together. Everything was so fuzzy. I do remember being afraid of the big green wavy moat… (aka the front lawn)
I was being detoxed from the largest alcoholic bender, I had blood alcohol poisoning, I was taking amphetamines, and XTC like there was no tomorrow, and I would smoke as much pot as I could get my hands on… My physical health was at an all time low too.
then this doc comes with this clip board and starts talking about onset before puberty and this cat poo thing… yeah… it wasn’t the years of drugs and drinking, it was some cat poo that my Mom might have touched some 17 years previous when she was 1 week pregnant with me. That is how I ended up here in hospital… it wasn’t the drugs or illness at all.
I’ve sort of mocked this theory ever since. I should be nicer about it.
