A Note on Archives
A few problems with databases and corrupted files and near total loss of files means some links are broken and many images are just plain gone. It will take time to reconstruct post by post.
Links to nola.com older than a month or so are dead/broken links. Google search the listed title of the article and it should pop up. You can avoid nola.com's paid archives if you have access to a database through a university or public library.
Send the post title, date, and the link [copy the highlighted/underlined text] to gbspotmail**gmail***com.

A Bitch takes shit from no one. You may not like her, but you cannot ignore her.

I wake up sore, like I overdid 3 workouts, and only less tired, a matter of degrees, than I did when I collapsed into bed. Heat helps some, mostly because it feels comforting and is a distraction. I scramble for … Continue reading

It starts as an ache between my shoulder blades and weird pain, needles shooting through my wrists, shins, forearms. The ache in my upper back becomes tightness and incredible pain any time my head moves down or to the side. … Continue reading
