Sonja's Pain Page is not quite as old as it looks (Some parts of the site were last updated in 2013), but it still got its start around 2000. It is lush with graphics and rich with text.
|The site is easier to navigate from the scroll bar near the bottom of the home page, and there is a lot here. Sonja tells stories in prose, poetry, and pictures. Since much of the site and its graphics remains intact, it might provide an excellent example of a certain graphic style prevlaent on Web 1.0. Sonja was clearly an expert in this style of web site creation.|
But can you accept Sonja's stories of illness and abuse as a "real person's" lived experience? Real human beings have last names and other proofs of existence. Fiction requires no such proof. Withourt a last name and other details, Sonja may be a wellcrafted,fictional character created twenty years ago.
