Re: Before you bring home a new bird

@Jasper, I wouldn't know how else to explain on here is why I may sound like this. I didn't want to leave any details out because I knew I would get questions. My episodes are over as this was since June. I completely understand what you mean as I was going through way too much in the beginning Hence the fact I am a Veteran with PTSD. In July I contacted media and they turned me down probably because I was in a panic and with attorney's I went through everything in the yellow pages and online and mostly I dealt with them online. I created a timeline and gathered a packet together that I stated in the previous posts' and I sent that packet out to everyone you can imagine. No attorney will take this case, I don't know why? It's not because of me...the majority didn't speak to me. Either they don't see enough money involved or they could care less about animals. I have contacted animal-law attorneys as well and I am not sure why they won't take the case. Our city filed bankruptcy (EVEN though they aren't broke as the shelter generated millions anually or so) and it will go to court in Oct. I am going to try after Oct or Nov to see if it will go anywhere. There could be many reasons why they didn't take my case, either I won't get back as much as I spend or it is a waste of their time. Maybe the city attorney on the shelters end knows people or well known, IDK? He even said he was close friends with the shelter manager and to name my price and the shelter manager is retired police...that's obvious that they have a closed knit circle and have the upper hand as they have been doing illegal stuff over the years and have gotten away with it thus far. It's a small world..IDK how far this really goes.

Re: Before you bring home a new bird

I literally had to allow a day to pass before responding.

It boggles my mind to learn how a histrionic absence of due process, lack of clear and honest communication coupled with an alleged profound high-level of crookedness could foist such despair upon you and your family.

As you and others recognize, approaching prospective attorneys, legislatures, and members of the press in an unemotional and clear manner is crucial. Have you contacted any national media outlets or some of the more prominent animal advocacy groups??

An event such as you experienced would profoundly shake me to the core, and I would exhaust every, and I mean every ethical and legal method to find out what happened to my birds and bring those who crossed the law to justice. It would become a life passion, and I am a very "young" 55.

Re: Before you bring home a new bird

I am fighting air! there is nothing I can do. I have contacted every single media you can think of, even ones I have never heard about. All I can do is wait for their bankruptcy fiasco to end sometime in Oct or Nov and then I can try to proceed again. I have already contacted state BAR on that attorney for illegal activity and I am in the process of Internal affairs (not guaranteed they will help because it's in the same police department). Trust me I have went above and beyond and there are many things I haven't listed that I have done due to the legality of it. I mentioned that in my first post I believe but I tried to give a very descriptive detail of what I have and been going through the last 3+ months. All this is easier said than done but try handling this situation when the whole family is ill and nonstop dr apts, vet apts, cleaning the crap outta the home from whatever it was, and many ill symptoms. It was very hard until mid August when the symptoms started dying down and my mind was actually clear. I am in my 30's and have never felt the way I did in my whole life so it was hard to adjust and cope with that while doing the things I was doing. It was extremely hard. I am much better now but we still need to take legal action and if there are no attorney's to take the case then you are screwed. Media is not taking this for some reason..I have had a few call me and get more info and question me and they never took it. I'm assuming the attorney was involved so they didn't want to legally be involved? I'm telling you, that attorney did a number on us. Now that he's been investigated by the BAR I am trying the media again but no luck. Maybe they don't care or maybe I'm not the first victim? They already did a story on the shelter last yr or so, maybe that could be another reason? I don't know but I have done everything I could and noone can do anything for me, they just give me responses just like you guys are on here =/ it is mind boggling and it is hard but at least we aren't feeling the way we were in July! I know we aren't 100% cured but it's getting there because we are curing ourselves. This battle will most likely take a year.

Re: Before you bring home a new bird

You certainly have a long road ahead and I commend you for not giving in to the numbing bureaucracy. It's a marathon, not a sprint and you must first safeguard your health as that is key to maintaining stamina and a resolved mind.

Exactly...we are on our way to being cured. It's just sad that the medical field failed to further help us. They gave my husband and son 7 days supply, whereas my daughter and I 21 days. I found that odd but my husband was suffering bad in July after he was done with his. I started spacing mine out because I was scared to have those symptoms again and I know you aren't supposed to do this but I felt I had no choice. After many different dr's, my kids finally got referrals to Infectious diseases but that was the end of August...pretty crappy! We already started on the homeopathic remedies and now Essential oils this month and it seems to help more than the dr! The U.S. is a joke, I am still shocked at how they have handled this whole situation and how things have taken place. No matter how much documentation and evidence I have, it's still not getting me anywhere. Trust me, I won't give up! They have no idea what those birds meant to me...we lost our first daughter back in 08 and losing my birds brang back those same feelings! I wish I had waited to take them to the vet but I couldn't get in, in time as he was booked and I already scheduled it. With how everyone was getting sick, I couldn't wait so I called CDC and they are a joke too. They do not give a hoot, nor does public health! You should see our Dr notes from the first dr who we experienced malpractice. This whole thing is so crazy and the order everything happened in, feels like a conspiracy. The dr notes were terrible and all lies...things we said that we never said! It had to be airborne because my tortoises were sick! Pretty insane as they were upstairs and my torts were downstairs in their tank and was never in contact! Anyways...I will keep you all updated if or when we finally get through this mess. In need of lots of prayers but thank you all for taking the time...

Re: Before you bring home a new bird

Update: it took 2years to be completely healed and rid our home with whatever disease that was! We had itchies that was similar to mites but test after test revealed nothing! Ivermectin cured us and that was me being the guinea pig to figure out what worked because no one helped us figure this out...you can only imagine how much this racked up on bills! I never owned an animal after 2+ yrs of the incident. Never looked at a bird again or even attempted to. I was highly emotional after my babies and Iíve never experienced that kind of attachment to an animal in my life! Last time I cried very hard was when our first daughter passed at 5.5months back in 2008! What these people have done will not go unpunished by the Lord! He does deliver! I havenít logged on or looked at anything bird related since the incident! I was torn and devistated so forgive me for not responding. Iím relearning to maneuver around this site as I attempted to become familiar but was still new before. We recently adopted 2 parakeets that were rehomed so Iím taking it one step at a time! We are also putting our house up soon to get out of this god forsaken state! Thanks to everyone for support and even taking the time to read! I attempted to reread and itís just too much and I def donít want to relive the past so I just didnít.

Re: Before you bring home a new bird

Kimichanga I have just read your unbelievable story of the traumatic & heartbreaking events that you have been through over the past several years. I am outraged by the cruelty that you suffered at the hands of bureaucracy and others but amazed by your tenacity in fighting for your and your bird’s rights and welfare and I’m so sorry that the outcome left you so devastated. But here you still are, and adopted two more unwanted babies and showering them with your love and I so admire you for that!

I wish you every success with your upcoming move and hope you and your feathery family remain safe and regain the strength and faith you feel you’ve lost - use us here to draw strength when you need to, your forum friends will always be here for you! I’m looking forward to hearing some happier stories about you and your feathered babies in the Brand New Year!
