luv my bird
I respect the rules of this website, and definitely enjoy myself here, but you definitely have to be more aware of what you're writing for fear of offending someone or simply saying the wrong thing. The other site that Carl is referring to was designed in a way that people can speak more openly without fear of stepping on someone's toes. However, the people on that site are very caustic and at times hurtful. For me, both sites are a lot of fun and quite challenging. I feel very displaced here since I lost my bird. I feel that I can't contribute anymore. Maybe, that's the reason I sought out other forums.

Wellllll -- there's always the "Off-Topic" section, where you can bring up any old thing you want, and get people talking about something YOU find interesting. And you better know that lots of us will jump right in and chit-chat with you!

Four of the five boards that I check on daily relate to the autoimmune disorder that my wife has - ITP. At first she went to one for information and support, and then I began to post - in support of her and others, and then I learned that I liked the social aspect of discussion boards. And I felt that I liked cheering folks up. Once in a while, I needed cheering up.
Until then, I had never been on any discussion board, and didn't even like chatting. Still don't like chatting.
Marge is the love of my life.
