"Danielle's Pinched Nerve Blog" Because you don't know me at all, but I'd like you to! Also find me on Facebook under Danielle Rose Smith
Danielle's Pinched Nerve Blog is a repository of opinion, articles, letters, thoughts, pictures, links, and stories, mostly dealing with homeless advocacy, with some politics, religious and spiritual, military, home life, computers, and some subjects too personal to make public. You won't see these, of course, they are set to private. I document everything I possibly can.
This is my personal Weblog. The opinions expressed here represent my own, and not those of anyone twisting my arm to say them, although some people--politicians, for example--cannot avoid my pinched nerve letters, where I expose them, and pinch their nerves a little--or a lot!
All my written, posted entries are my personal copyrighted property, for public reading and consideration, and are subject to edit; all articles have a need to edit, clarify, or add material. Some are based on news , therefore as events are unfolding, updates become necessary.
I try my very best to consider all to whom I write or whose works are cited, or illustrated in my blog. I document and check everything I can think of eventually, I give others credit where it is due with links to them--I seek to take no credit for anyone else's work however,

Pinched Nerve Blog is an annotated collection of my best articles individually imported (cut & pasted) from Live Journal as a parallel set of the same posts, and direct posts as well.
So, WordPress is a backup for my Livejournal blog, and visa-versa, Livejournal is backed up by my WordPress blog. Refresh frequently, and read about homeless from one who has been there, and still can't shake it off.
I want to insure that my writings will be available to friends of the community I live in, Eugene,and Springfield, Oregon, most importantly, and to friends and loved ones here, who I have told about my voluminous journal(s) of writing(s)!
To any classmates, relatives, or friends back in the Pocono Mtns. of Pennsylvania;
My writing hopefully, will continued to be saved on the Internet in the event my belongings are lost, stolen, or damaged, or I die; whenever the Internet is to die, well, I just hope it won't!
Also, I was ready to take on more creative control of my work, by having two different looks for presentation for my liking, and for my readers. this journal, and its adjustable themes is a showcase for my artistic and writing ability to display my self-expression.
Pinched Nerve, also describes the frustration of living where you hate--and hating where you are living--such as I hate Eugene--trying to, no more than necessary--decreasing energy and mobility, loneliness, broken hearts, of aging, of losing friends, and living with back injury, which often happens in one's life. Of turning 60 years old. A pinched ciatica nerve several years ago, necessitated surgery, with degeneration of disks ongoing.
A pinched nerve was my salvation--a bitter irony--a very painful many years worth of suffering--throughout fifteen years of homeless hell--disability finally awarded me a way out of that hell, and here I am, over four years with a roof over my head, and money to pay the rent--all from a pinched nerve. What can I say?
Pinched nerve blog is also the place for my edited, focused rant, anger, irritation, frustration, cynicism, protest, edginess, attitude, sarcasm, advocacy, and expose's of past homeless struggle with the bigotry and discrimination, and the forces that seek to control and limit human enlightenment. Pain colors one's work, differently than peace.
