This is my view, from my foxhole.  Everybody has their own war…  Take what you need — leave the rest.  And, most importantly, I reserve the right to change and evolve my opinions over time…  That's what good conversations do — blogs, inherently, are conversations.

    Dissociation and Other Considerations

    PTSD's a life-long endeavor — there's no cure for it.  The triggering traumatic event changes the landscape of the mind — it no longer works in the same fashion that it did before.  The mind's been rewired — the neuropathways have been altered into a continuous loop.  The PTSD-triggering incident converts the fight or flight response within the primitive portion of our brain.  Imagine, having that scared feeling you get without the fear, while keeping the bodily reactions — the tenseness, the adrenalin rush, the mind racing, heightened senses, and the hyper-response reflex — to react without thinking.

    I've, recently, had my MedicAlert subscription renewed.  I've got a shit-load of medical issues and needed to have it replaced.  I've been having more myoclonic episodes as of late.  Given the amount of medications that I'm on and the severity of some of my medical problems, it could very well save my life one day.

    When you're helpless and/or hurt, your MedicAlert ID and membership, give paramedics the information that they need in order to save your life.  Don't die of denial…  A medical emergency could happen to you too.  Get the same protection and peace of mind that I have by signing-up for MedicAlert!  For a discount and/or special offer when signing-up, be sure to use my referral code — "JS17-1979".

     

  • Combat PTSD and the Relevance of Hypervigilance

    Firstly, let's get the definition out of the way…  Hypervigilance is an enhanced state of sensory sensitivity, accompanied by an exaggerated intensity of behaviours, whose purpose is to detect threats.  Although it may feel like paranoia, they're not the same thing.

    Discarding the military for a moment, and thinking of PTSD in general, a symptom of PTSD is hypervigilance.  This means, what society classifies as normal — being a person who lacks significant deviation from society and/or conforms to the ideals of society — typically, has little to no requirement for being hypervigilant.  Without fear, there's no requirement to be looking for something.  The most a civilian's, partially hypervigilant, is within daily acts of driving a motor vehicle and crossing the road.  That's the, typical, extent of a civilian's hypervigilance.

    Web masters tend to concentrate on increasing traffic to their Web site, but two important factors which which often fail to be considered, are user behaviour and user engagement.  Factors, such as these, matter substantially.  When a Web site gets 10,000 hits per day, but all of its visitors leave the Web site after visiting only a single Web page, it's not likely to be a quality Web site.

    Today, we'll be learning what the term "bounce rate" means.  The bounce rate of a Web site's an analytical factor that's used to determine what actions people are taking after arriving at your landing page(s).  Are they moving to other Web pages of your Web site or are they jumping away to an entirely different Web site.

    Google AdSense is one of the most commonly used advertising platforms, today, within the Internet industry — with millions of publishers world-wide.  Almost every Web property — whether, small or large — is making money online with AdSense.  Is your Web property amongst those?

    I'd consider AdSense to be "the people's choice" when it comes to the monetization of a Web site.  Anybody with a unique and/or interesting Web site can join this program.  A single click can earn anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars; depending, upon your niche.  If you're looking for the easiest and the most profitable pay-per-click ad program, then AdSense is the best.

    But, wait a minute though!  The title of this post says "no AdSense"  Read-on to learn why, at times, the best choice isn't putting AdSense — or, any other ad-serving alternative — on your business Web site.
