Hi, everyone! First off, my username isn't my real name just an online persona I use. ;)

I am diagnosed with schizoaffective, bipolar type and generalized anxiety disorder. I have been diagnosed with schizoaffective for years but got the GAD diagnosis just a few months ago. All of sudden my anxiety and all it's quirks finally make sense!

I have a fierce interest in psychology especially mental illnesses and love chatting with anyone who would like to discuss it. Other things I love is the TV show The Mentalist, The Frighteners movie, photography (art in general), birds and music.

If anyone wants to chat feel free to send me a message. :)

See ya around the forums!

Hi Lizzy, what kind of birds do you have? I have a Jenday conure, he's been Rollin with me for 17 years.. He'll be 18 on new years. I've never had anything in my life that has been there as long as Happybird...

Thank you, everyone, for the welcome!

Roc I have a green cheek conure named Loki, 2 parakeets named Raine and Sturm and a cockatiel named Spike. I have grown up with birds and love them to pieces. They have always been there for me so I know what you mean.

Thanks for the warm welcome! :D

Nikita- I have two cats as well. Saved them as kittens. It's amazing to watch them grow up knowing you raised them! What kind of cats do you have? Mine are tabbies with some bengal. They're grey and black.

fidget- Oh my gosh Frighteners is my most favorite movie ever! I loved that movie as a child as well.

crawlspace- Amazing to find people who own birds! What's your bird's names?


I've been to a lot of forums in the past but this one I feel the most welcome on. :)

Hi

My sun conure is called Barney, the senegal is charlie and the budgies are Basil and Parsley. It's amazing that 3 people on here have conures rather than other birds.Your cats sound very beautiful.

This is a very friendly forum and is the only one I regularly post on.
