  1. I’m really happy that she pulled her life together! I hope she is still on the right path today.

  2. I just rewatched Gina, and have a question…did it seem odd that she was nodding out although her drug was meth? I always thought the nod-out was generally seen with opiates. Anybody?

    • I also thought this was really odd too. I thought maybe she’d been up for several days and was just so tired, but then again she was probably on more than she said just for the simple fact that she wouldn’t talk about some things on the show anyway.

    • I was wondering the same thing. Maybe it’s when she’s not on the meth. Or it could be a long term side effect. I noticed that she would roll her eyes in a weird way and one eye was half shut. The show said she had been using meth for 10 years. You could definitely see the long term effects both mentally and physically. I hope she is doing much better and those effects can be reversed.

  4. Where is Dizzys screen shot from? I watched this episode just now and Gina never looked like this during her interviews. Her hair was longer and curly and her makeup was different. Or maybe I missed a part?
