What’s in a name?

I have to admit I am being lazy and writing up some of my blog posts ahead of time right now. So that I do not fall back into the rut of not posting for weeks, and this is one of them. C’est La Vie! So, what’s in a name? By this I mean A Story About A Girl or storyboutagirl.org. I feel like giving a bit of a back history about the domain name, my blogging and whatever else I can think of related to this.

If you have read my about section then you may already know that the name is based off of an Our Lady Peace (OLP) song called Story About A Girl off of their Gravity album. If you want to check out some of their songs you can check out their iTunes page. READ MORE

Getting there

I saw my family doctor today and he said that while it is possible that I had a panic attack at work yesterday that it is unlikely that that is the underlying problem and that it is more likely the result of a major asthma attack and/or not being able to catch my breath or breathe properly.

He said that often during severe or life threatening asthma attacks, patients do not appear to be in distress, the chest may be so tight that no wheezing sings are present. He also said that the patient can appear pink and then can go cyanotic, which I did. READ MORE

Round two

I don’t know where to start but want to keep people update and am still hoping for some ideas, comments or suggestions on what I should do next if this keeps happening. I really am a bit lost. And I really need to get this figured out ASAP. Is there something important I am missing? Or that they are overlooking?

And sorry another super long post. And I promise I will visit some blogs tomorrow if I do not end up at the hospital again. READ MORE

And the car strikes again

Either I need to start taking care of my car more or my car has a vendetta against me… maybe a little bit of both? I now have an air leak in one tire and my drivers door jams and wont close, you slam it and if your not careful it bounces back and hits you in the gut. It’s only 3 years old!

I took my car to Canadian Tire to get it fixed yesterday and walked out without getting it fixed. They wanted change a bunch of parts that didn’t need changing (although the way it is going I am sure they will need to be soon) and wanted to charge me for 3 hours of work cause their “book” says so… A mechanic my dad knows says it shouldn’t take more then an hour and that half the stuff they wanted to “fix” had nothing to do with the fuel system and did not need to be touched.
