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!

    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.

    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!

    Good day, all! I had a bit of a crying jag today – I think I’m going to write about it later in the week. But I also bought myself flowers to cheer the house up. I hope they kick in soon!
