Hey everyone, I realize this is not a workout related question but my baby budgie died last night from a bacterial infection and im a complete mess. I found him this morning and have been crying on/off all day. Is this normal to be so upset? He was my first pet i loved him so much. Is it a sign of depression to cry so much its only been since this morning.

Perfectly normal...its called grieving not depression!
Sorry for your loss!
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's completely normal to be sad. Our pets become family members and dear friends and losing them is sad and upsetting. I cried so many times when one of my cats decided to move to another family, and then I cried again when they called me a couple of years later to tell me he had a stroke and was no longer with us. It's been many years since but I can still feel sad about it now and then.
Let your tears out, acknowledge your feelings and cherish the memory of your little friend. In time the sadness will become easier to handle. Big hugs to you.
I'm very sorry for you, I know how it feels.
Of course it's ok to cry and it's not a sign of Depression. You're sad because of this loss so it's just normal to cry. Believe me, it will get better after some time.
I don't know if this helps you know but when my cat died I thought something like "At least he's at a better place now and that I'll see him again in 'heaven'."
Thank you everyone for the support, I cried more yesterday than I have in my whole life. The grieving process is so hard. I went back to work today that actually helped to get out of house and I think im going to workout later too.thank u everyone
Thank you. I have to clean out his cage going to be hard. He had a red swing his favourite i took it out of the cage and cried again.
oh man i know the feeling.....pets become apart of our lives so quickly! they work their way into our heart and become our world!
when i first got my puppy, i had her for about 10 days until she got super sick and had to be hospitalized. i was a complete wreck.
just try to get through it, be strong and take it easy!(eat all the ice cream you need)
