Slappy in the Face

Have we recovered from the deliciousness of yesterday’s featured blogger?


Now we are going to visit a lady who keeps it real. We like that.

Meet Gina of Slappy in the Face. If you have moment to check out her story- you should. She’s been one heck of a journey. She took her nightmare experience with Paxil side effects into information for others.

Here is Gina in her own words:

I started blogging on a dare, when a friend introduced me to a few famous ones and said, “you could do that”. She was right … I could … and I did. I share serious things like my recovery from prescription drug addiction, my experience with hoarding and relationship abuse, and my struggle to overcome debt, but it’s not all doom and gloom. I also share my crazy life raising five teenagers, being the wife of a firefighter, and my “Quest to Destress”. Come on over … I have a box of wine!

  21. What an incredible story to accompany an incredible journey. I have always seen writing as a form of therapy. It helps us to tell the world our secrets, let go, and inform others of our life journey.

  23. You and that doggone box of wine, I tell ya. You and Kathy Griffins mom HAVE got to meet up and become friends and get your booze on!

    But, on the real side, congratulations.

    I look forward to reading your blog – hearing about your life. Got a book coming out? If not, you should write one. If you have (written one), send it to Hollywood, wouldja? I swear, if one more celebrity dies, goes to rehab, or jail… You’re the kind of role model they need to know about.

    Keep on keeping on, lady!

  24. congrats on your day!!!
