    Talking Hi I'm new

    Hello!
    My name is Amber and Ive been a bird mom for about a year. I had 5 budgies but unfortunately I lost two of them. I've vowed never to let that happen again, and to treat my 3 remaining birds with the utmost care and respect. One of the birds who passed was my Earl-y Bird. Earl was the first budgie or bird Ive ever owned. He was my best friend and I miss him more than I can bear. He was bonded to me; he loved to play and was always singing to me. He would get on my thumb and peck at my fingernail like if he were beak-kissing another birdie.
    I'm in a few parakeet-oriented groups on Facebook and when I found this forum I knew I had to join. When I was a teen I was active on quite a few forums and find their format to be the easiest for me to understand. I have high-functioning Aspergers, ADHD, and anxiety, so sometimes things get a little jumbled in my head. I hope that my communications on this forum will be concise and able to be understood effectively.
    So, hello all. I hope I can make some friends

    Re: Hi I'm new

    Thank you, everyone! I'm very excited to be here. I used to love forums as a teen and I'm very happy to have found on just for birdies! I'm in a few Facebook groups that are budgie related but I like the formatting of forums much more. Plus here I can learn about all different types of parrots
    Rest in peace, Earl-ly bird

    Re: Hi I'm new

    Hi! Just thought I would mention I used to love online forums as a teenager too (back in the early 2000's that is!). I could never make friends properly at school in the beginning so I made friends online instead. Most of the forums were based in the USA so I remember a lot of the people that I would chat with online were in the USA. I mostly used to join fan pages of my favourite actors and make friends like that. Funnily enough, I met one friend who was also here in Australia, but in a different state to me, and believe it or not, we are still friends to this day and have met in person too when I visited that state for a short holiday with a friend. That being said I dont have much of a social circle, and just a few good friends that I was finally able to make when I started working etc who are scattered around, not in the same state as me, as I left where I used to live to move to another state.

    I think there are good and bad things to facebook. In my case, the benefit is that it would be the only way to interact with my relatives whom are all scattered overseas and everyone knows facebook in most countries regardless of language barriers. However, even with that I still dont bother to have a facebook account. I don't like it as I feel like there is no privacy and its too easy to look at other people's supposedly perfect lives and feel depressed about my own when seeing updates so I choose not to use it (I even did an assignment on the impact of facebook on mental health for a psychology class) . But the bird groups on there do sound interesting.

    I'm so sorry that you lost two of your birds. It is heartbreaking to lose them, we get so attached to them and I think they get attached to us even if they are not tamed. I lost a bird last year too, which happened so suddenly and without any warning. I had exams in that week too so it was even more difficult to have to deal with that too. After that happened I also vowed to keep my eye on all the birdies and try to notice any warning signs earlier to prevent anything. I really hope you enjoy the forums and look forward to reading updates on your three little budgies!
