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!

    Out of all the ways you described yourself, my eyes popped when I read the raising five teenagers part. In about ten years or so, I’ll have four of my own! Your blog material sounds so different from what’s on my current reading list. And different is definitely good. Happy SITS day to you!

    Wow, I just read your story and I want to say you are a very brave person. I wish you the best in your fight to get people to understand more about Paxil. What an inspiration.
