which, no lie, fucked me up so much that I had to go to therapy

She continues:

We were in an abandoned hotel on top of a mountain. It had 30 telephone poles on the roof, so there was electricity pulsating through the building, and everyone was shocking each other,” she says. “It was cold as shit, and so dry. The only thing that helped was dousing myself with oil every night. Now I can’t get enough.
