Testing Yourself for Bi-Polar Disorder


If you are unaware, what bipolar disorder actually is, here is a brief introduction. Bipolar disorder is a mental illness which causes its victim to have unexpected and uncontrolled mood swings. At times, the patient may have extraordinarily alleviated mood, medically called mania, while at other times they may go through the spans of depressed mood, feeling gloomy.

Both of these mood swings may occur separately or even at the same time in mixed episode. Bipolar disorder mainly targets youngsters or those in early adult age. Almost half of the victims found so far are below the age of 25 and many are in classes to learn how to weld.

Self-Test for Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder cannot be diagnosed easily, especially when it is in its initial stages. Often, the symptoms are mistaken as separate mood problems and the victim fails to look at them as parts of a bigger problem. The greatest problem with this disorder is that it stays undiagnosed for years because there is no physical test available to diagnose it. Nothing like saliva test or blood test, etc. works for bipolar disorder.

So it is the patient himself who needs to observe his own behavior carefully. If you suspect that the symptoms are pointing towards bipolar disorder, you can confirm it by following these major instructions:

1- Notice carefully that how often you don’t feel like yourself and end up having to excuse for your behavior. You need to be candid in this regard and note both the alleviated and depressed moods.

2- Track your sleep routine. Take notes of how long did you sleep the previous night and how many hours did you experienced insomnia as well as, how many times did you feel that you need to sleep more than your routine.

3- When you notice abnormal sleep tendencies as mentioned above, try to correlate it with your energy level and mood swings. E.g. you may find out that higher sleep tendency may be resulting in periods of depressed moods, loneliness, and even a tendency to attempt suicide.

4- Take a record every time you think that you exhibited irresponsible or risky behavior, putting yourself in danger. When a patient is going through manic phase, he may show reckless behavior, such as throwing away a lot of money, driving fast or indulging in immoral sexual relations.

If you manage to keep this record and then visit a doctor, telling him about these facts, it would be easier for him to diagnose with precision.

Bipolar Disorder Self-Test

You can find a lot of questionnaires on internet which are designed specifically to help a person diagnose whether he is suffering bipolar disorder or not before to enrolls in a class to learn how to MIG weld. These are in the form of multiple choice questions, and once you have taken the test, you would be presented with a score based on your answers. In most cases, the higher the score, the greater is the possibility that you have become a victim of this disorder. The questionnaires are usually composed of such questions as;

  • Sometimes I speak rapidly and feel that I am more talkative than usual routine
  • I have gone through such periods when I feel elevated and depressed at the same time
  • Sometimes I felt myself active than usual and doing much more than normal routine
  • I sometimes experience an obvious difference between the quality and quantity of my work.
  • I sometimes feel extraordinarily optimistic, while at other times I feel equally pessimistic.

If the bipolar disorder goes unaddressed for long time, it can even turn fatal for the patient, putting him in life threatening situations, because, stay aware that suicide rates among the patients of bipolar disorders are much higher. This long term disorder needs to be treated carefully. Self-tests can be really helpful in diagnosing this disorder in time, so that you may be able to lead a healthy stress free life.

Be Careful of Scammers This Time of the Year!


This blog is about web marketing strategies, but something happened to me yesterday, which rang my internet security alarm, that I feel is very important to share with you. What you are about to read could save you years of frustration, anger and financial woes.

I’ve been online for over twenty years, if you want to include my stint with Prodigy in the late 1980s and early 90s, so I tend to think that most people also have extensive online experience and knowledge, especially younger people, since they’ve grown up with it.

But what happened to me yesterday both shocked and made me realize how vulnerable and naive many computer users are when it comes to dirty tricks like phishing and scamming for things like how to prevent cystic acne, the act of trying to get an email recipient to open a link (within the body of the email) and supply sensitive personal information through extremely deceptive means, such as impersonating a major bank, eBay or PayPal.

I was at the checkout counter of Trader Joes, where the checkers are usually quite friendly, but noticed that my checker, a young man, maybe late 20s or early 30s, was absentmindedly ringing my items up and his head was literally hanging down. I asked him something like, why the long face? And this poor guy, he just looked up at me for moment, exasperation in his eyes, and said, oh, man. I had my identity stolen. All my credit cards. Everything.

I figured he was involved in some elaborate scheme to trick him out of his information. He seemed like he should be Internet savvy. I have no basis for that except a gut feeling. The next thing that occurred made my gut feel completely different. I asked him how it happened. His head was down again and he mumbled something I couldn’t discern, then said, they got me through an email, and that’s when my stomach sank. I slowly said, did you open an attachment? He didn’t hear me, but answered the question with a feeble, and it was from a bank.

I could feel his betrayal. It’s like somebody telling you that Santa Claus doesn’t exist, which he does. Reflexively, I started to say, that was a phishing attempt, but I knew it would be like telling a guy who just had his leg cut off by a train to not lay on the tracks. Too little, too late.

His whole world was ripped apart because of his trust. He trusted that the official-looking email he got from his bank was truly from his bank. After all, it had their official logo and legal jargon and a message saying, somebody has tried to unsuccessfully login to your account, so it was suspended. To reactivate your account click on the link below to update your password.

So the poor guy clicked on the link, which did not take him to his bank but to the phisher-man. It asked the guy to enter all of his information again, including his password, just to update. And the poor, unsuspecting, trusting guy did. Then his life changed. The scammers had everything they needed to enter his life, and they did, aggressively and painfully.

Please, ladies and gentlemen, when you get official looking email from PayPal, eBay or a major bank with a request to click on the link, DONT DO IT!!! In most cases you can hover your cursor over the link in the email (hover with your finger off of the mouse button) and you can see the destination URL in the lower left or right hand corner of your browser.

Often, though, the craftiest of the phishers will put the name of the company somewhere in the link, so at first glance it looks like it came from that company. For example. If you need to login to any account that contains any sensitive personal information, do it directly. Manually type in www.PayPal.com, then access your account from their log in screen.

The scammers can easily create an email with all sorts of official-looking images, verbiage and links, but don’t be tempted to ask them, ‘Why is my cat peeing everywhere?’. If you get an email like this that looks suspicious, most, if not all, major corporations have departments that solely deal with phishing and scamming.

Forward the email to them (in full header view) and they can tell you if it’s a phishing attempt or not. Most companies have email addresses like: spoof@paypal.com (PayPal’s abuse dept.) or abuse@ (the company’s domain name). It also helps these companies to track down who’s doing this stuff, but that’s an uphill battle.

One final note: Another common phishing attempt is to send you a link in an email from one of your friend’s accounts whom they’ve hacked. Have you ever received an email from one of your friends and they’re adamant about you clicking on this Funny New Video or something that seemed very uncharacteristic of them to send?

Then you get a frantic email from that friend, sent from another email account (because they can no longer access their hacked one), telling you not to open any email from them because they’ve been hacked! Then your heart sinks because you’ve already clicked on the link.

It’s always better to take a few moments when going through your email and really think things through before clicking on any link. It’s much better than spending weeks, months, even years trying to get your life back in order. For Internet marketers this is especially important because most Internet marketers tend to have many more online accounts (with personal information) than the average computer user.

Japan Is Not Going to Meltdown


Japan is not going into meltdown

Worries about the full impact of the triple Japanese disasters and the popular uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East dissipated as the world and the investment community came to the conclusions that a nuclear meltdown had been avoided, and unrest in Muslim countries would not spread as rapidly as previously thought to more important oil exporters such as Saudi Arabia. After nearly a month-long pullback the stock market rallied strongly through early April. The Federal Reserve fanned the renewed market flames by leaving its monetary policy unchanged and restating its intention to carry out its $600 billion bond purchase program through June, sending several stock indexes past their prerecession highs.

Then the sovereign debt problems in Europe resurfaced, with Portugal requesting more aid, and the U.S. budget stalemate took center stage with government shutdown threats from both sides. While the short-term discussions are over, nothing has been resolved.

U.S. debt could erupt

The deal reached minutes before a shutdown lowered the current year budget deficit by a mere 1%, with both parties claiming a major breakthrough on how to get rid of severe acne. This year’s deficit is set to become the largest ever and it is pretty clear that the political focus in Washington has shifted from job creation to tackling the national debt.

The largest single-day stock market losses in over a month came just yesterday when the Standard & Poor’s rating agency said there is a 33 percent chance it would lower the U.S. credit rating from AAA in the next two years if Washington fails to pare the country’s debts. The warning also expressed doubts that the government would move quickly to curb the mounting deficits.

GE and Google invest in solar

As Earth Day approaches (recognized around the world on April 22), it is heartwarming to see two giant companies making major bets on renewable energy.

Google joined BrightSource Energy and NRG Solar with a $168 million investment in what is presented as “the world‘s largest solar project under construction which, when completed in 2013, will nearly double the amount of solar thermal electricity produced in the U.S. today.”

GE’s announcement is more significant because of their rapid ascent as a wind energy leader which they now want to replicate in the solar space. The company announced their intent to spend $600 million to build “the largest solar factory in the United States”, which when built, at full capacity will produce 400 megawatts of panels per year. Of added significance is that their stated approach is with thin-film technology which uses cadmium telluride (CdTe), the same technology which has been perfected by First Solar (FSLR). The upcoming May issue includes our analysis of GE’s major move and our solar stock recommendations.

The Portfolio update and recommendations

The price of energy (oil) took a breather after a relentless climb while other commodities (gold, silver) are reaching all-time highs. The alternative energy sector has been hit harder, probably because of continued budget worries in developed countries placing government subsidies in doubt. The broad stock market as measured by the S&P 500 advanced 5.00% in the month since our last update while The Portfolio lost 1.77%.

Before we review which sectors and stocks dragged down our returns we must mention the strongest performer, one of our preferred energy efficiency pure plays, which advanced 16.91% in the month, helping that sector to lead all other green sectors with a 6.26% gain.

On the downside we had a couple of unhappy surprises from our wind energy stock holdings. Our speculative Chinese wind energy play, China Wind Systems (CWS), hit its 30% trailing stop loss at $3.15 on March 17th, right after our last update went out, and accordingly, we closed the position. The second unwelcome news came from another of our small cap wind holdings which caused us to issue an alert e-mail to current subscribers on April 6, when the shares plunged some 45% after the company warned of lower quarter and fiscal year results. At current levels, we view the company as very undervalued and, for our more aggressive subscribers, we recommend doubling up on your position as we are doing in our model portfolio.

Losses in these two used riding mowers shows that the wind energy sector is near the bottom with a 6.87% drop. Still, it was the solar sector which managed to lead the way down with a 7.11% drop during the month. Rallying strongly after the Japanese nuclear disaster, solar shares have since been hit by fears of further subsidy cuts in Europe causing a solar market slowdown this year. The culprit once again, is Germany’s SMA Solar, the world’s largest maker of solar inverters, which continues to manage analyst expectations downward with scare tactics, despite keeping their own guidance unchanged.

With all eyes already on Italy, the world’s second largest solar market after Germany, where discussions are currently underway to decide the fate of the country’s subsidies and annual caps, the bearish opinion from SMA caused many investors to head for the exits. Most solar stocks, Chinese manufacturers in particular, have been hard hit with several of them down by over 15% since the beginning of April.

Since inception The Portfolio has gained 29.27% while the S&P Global Clean Energy index is down 26.41% over the same period.

We are not making any market predictions, and The Portfolio invests with a long-term view, but as we approach the summer months, a statistically weak period for stocks, we would not be surprised by some corrective action or meandering before the bull market resumes. For those of us with large long equity positions we highly recommend reading “Downside Protection: When And How” in the April 2011 issue of the newsletter.

What Type of Heartworm Medication to Use?


Heartworm medicine for dogs can be divided roughly into two types: those that prevent heartworm, and those that treat (or cure) heartworm. Obviously, prevention is simpler to deal with but they aren’t always 100% effective, unfortunately.

Preventive medicines have been around for quite some time and even though they aren’t 100% effective, they indeed do a remarkable job at keeping our pets safe, especially in areas known for high levels of infected mosquito infestations. Monthly treatments for problems like cat peeing on bed involve topical ointments that are usually rubbed onto the back of your dog’s neck where he can’t lick it off, and/or pills that can be taken daily or monthly.

Most medicines are multi-functional, meaning, they work on more than just heartworms. Depending on the medicine it could also be used to prevent roundworms, hookworms, and/or tapeworms, along with being able to kill eggs and larvae and perhaps even ticks.

Don’t reckon that keeping your dog indoors is preventive medicine! Mosquitoes are notorious for going where they aren’t welcome, and our homes aren’t immune from harboring at least one or two of these pesky critters. And that’s all you need to get your dog infected.

Depending on your vet, he may also recommend giving your dog’s pills in addition to using the topical ointments. In areas that are near water – where mosquitoes thrive – he may want your dog to be doubly protected. Do as he suggests, but make certain you don’t overmedicate or buy substitute prescriptions that may be cheaper without checking with your vet first.

If your dog has been diagnosed with heartworm, you will now need to give him the heartworm medications that are to cure/treat, rather than prevent. Once your dog has been diagnosed with heartworm, he’s already very sick, and these medications can make him worse. Some dogs have no side effects, others succumb to the side effects. Much like chemotherapy in human cancer patients, these medicines are poisons meant to kill the invading worms and larvae, frequently making the patient sicker before things get better.

It’s hard to get a right reading on how effective these drugs can be because frequently the deaths caused by the drugs are recorded as “death by heartworm” instead of the real culprit. If your vet suggests that you start an aggressive treatment schedule, you need to have a serious discussion with him about possible side effects – especially in your pet – vs. what would happen with no medical intervention.

Heartworm in dogs is not simple to diagnose, it’s not simple to cure, and dog heartworm symptoms can be even more hard and confusing to decipher.

The symptoms can mask other illnesses or they can be so general that most pet owners may not pay much attention to them. To compound the already serious problem of your dog being infected, symptoms don’t usually occur until your pet’s life is in danger.

The most common symptoms include coughing, vomiting, lethargy, difficulty breathing even when resting, weight loss, and a protruding rib cage. As the disease progresses undetected and untreated, these symptoms will progress in their severity to the point that either there is no doubt what is incorrect with your pet, or the animal collapses and dies without ever being properly diagnosed.

Dog heartworm symptoms can sometimes look like a cold and even when taken to the vet, he may not immediately reckon of anything more serious than a cold or even an allergy to the cleaning chemicals on the used garden tractors you were storing in your barn.

Even though heartworm is more prevalent with dogs who spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, in climates rife with mosquitoes, it’s not unheard of for indoor dogs to be infected as well. We all know that pesky mosquitoes can easily make their way indoors and all it takes is one bite from one infected mosquito and any dog can be immediately infected.

Smaller dogs are in even worse danger, and their symptoms should always be closely monitored. A cough or bout of diarrhea in a 3 pound teacup Chihuahua can be fatal with or without the added dangers of heartworm. Since heartworms can easily reach about 12 inches long, and dogs can be infected with many at once, smaller dogs have a higher death rate simply because owners and vets alike tend to ignore the coughs and general symptoms until it’s too late.

Since prevention is so aggressively touted and highly recommended, many vets and pet owners simply assume that because they have given their dog the appropriate medication as prescribed, nothing can happen and the dog won’t – or can’t – be infected with heartworm.

This just isn’t right. Even dogs who receive their heart worming medicine as regularly scheduled still are not immune to heart worm. Unfortunately, all it takes is one powerful mosquito bite that is infected with the worm, and the dog can become infected with or without the medication at work in his system.

 

Spotting Heartworm in Your Pets


Heartworm is hard to spot, it’s hard to fix, and even heartworm symptoms in dogs can be hard for you and your vet to figure out.

They are very similar to more common illnesses and maladies. Owners and even vets sometimes don’t pay much attention to what appears to be run of the mill problems. To make matters worse, once he starts showing signs of sickness, he’s already very ill. If you have to ask why do cats spray, it’s probably too late.

Common symptoms in the beginning are vomiting, diarrhea, breathing problems including wheezing, and coughing. They can progress to an enlarged rib cage (which grows wider to encompass the enlarged heart and lungs), bloody stools, and loss of appetite. All these symptoms are similar to those caused by more common diseases and not always recognized by owners or even vets.

They more frequently than not look like the common cold or an allergy. Even your vet may not immediately reckon of heart worm when you bring him in for a checkup.

Outdoor dogs are more likely to become infected with heartworm because heartworm is transmitted by infected mosquitoes and, of course, mosquitoes are more likely to be found outside. But, since these pests can all too easily get into our homes, it’s not unheard of indoor dogs to become victims to the disease as well. And, because these same dogs don’t go out often, owners tend to ignore the symptoms and never reckon about heartworm when the coughing and wheezing starts.

Even tiny dogs can be in danger, whether they seldom go outdoors. Don’t assume that just because your small Maltese never leaves the house that his coughing or diarrhea can’t be serious. Small dogs run a higher risk of mortality, too, if heartworm is left untreated because the worms can grow to about a foot long without regard to the size of the dog or the size of his heart.

Even though prevention is the key, that doesn’t mean that your dog is immune to the disease just because he received his heartworm medication on time. Even the best medications on the market won’t guarantee that your dog will be able to ward off the effects of an infected mosquito.

One of the major reasons symptoms tend to be ignored is because the dog has received heartworm medication and there is an assumption after that that the dog must be coming down with something else; he couldn’t possibly have heartworm. This assumption can cause your dog’s demise.

No matter how fussy your pet is, or how easily he can find a pill and spit it back out again, there are enough varieties of heartworm pills for dogs to ensure that your best pal has one that suits his finicky style.

No matter what type of pill you or vet chooses for your pet, the ingredients will most likely include either selamectin or ivermectin. Many vets recommend that these pills should be given in addition to the usual topical treatments, especially in known areas of high infestation – regardless of how much time your dog might spend outside.

It might take some trial and error to find the perfect pill for your individual pet. In families with multiple dogs, there’s a brilliant chance that each dog might need or do well with one particular brand vs. what his housemates take.

Years ago, the first version of the Holset HX40 came on the market – once which needed to be administered daily. Any dog owner knows how hard it is to get a pill into his beloved pet, so researchers finally developed a monthly pill. Of course, this comes with risks because the level of medicine – which is tantamount to poison for the worms – can cause problems in these dosage levels.

Dogs who do take a monthly heartworm pills for dogs frequently experience some toxic side effects which can range from a simple nuisance to life threatening heart palpitations and seizures. The real problem here is that poisons tend to build up in the body and they don’t always cause an immediate reaction.

For pooches who need the pills but do everything possible to avoid them, there are some beef flavored alternatives that even the fussiest are usually more than pleased to gobble up when questioned to.

Whatever you do, never give your dog any type of heartworm medication without consulting with your vet and getting explicit instructions and a prescribed course of action. Because of the inherent levels of toxicity involved with these preparations, you don’t want to cause problems unnecessarily. Don’t try buying these online “without a prescription” and don’t buy generic brands you aren’t familiar with.

One pill may be too much for many dogs. Take for example a toy poodle and a Husky. It only stands to reason that the poodle would need a lower dose than the Husky, and therefore, giving the poodle the same pill could quickly cause disastrous side effects. Don’t self-prescribe!
