Gina struggled with what would appear to be normal teenage problems with a twist! Gina always took the hard path and the road less traveled. She cut herself in order to heal, and she searched for a love that she craved. Battling extreme demons, she learned later in life that not only was this an abnormal way to cope, but she was also struggling with something much worse. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, she sought help on and off. Damaging almost every relationship that she came in contact with and being in denial made it almost impossible for her to maintain a normal life. She later accepted her illnesses and began to vigorously treat her addictions to pain and the mental quandaries that plagued her mind.
