Today we are going to talk about GRITS. No, this is not a cooking show and that is not food. GRITS stands for Girl Raised In The South. We are going to take you back to a small southern town of Martinsville, VA. A town known for NASCAR. So take this innocent southern belle and let’s add crack-cocaine in the mix. OK let’s add the New York Mafia and even San Francisco into the mix. See she was not only exposed to the crack she also became addicted. She ends up in rehab wondering how does a nice, well-mannered girl from the South end up here? This is her personal journey through drug addiction as only she can tell it. Today we are going to talk about the book, “CONFESSIONS OF A SOUTHERN BABY BOOMER: HOW I SURVIVED CRACK COCAINE ADDICTION, THE MAFIA AND OTHER TOTALLY TRUE TALES.” Our guest today has performed on stage, screen, television and radio. She is an actress, dancer and story-teller who uses her talents to bring a powerful anti-drug motivational message across the country and the world. She is a blend of Carrie Fisher, Emma Bombeck, Dolly Parton and a little Kathy Griffin. Please welcome Meg Henderson Wade to Your Life Matters.
