The “Guess what I’m pregnant!” announcement is typically the worst piece of news you’ve ever heard.
Only an infertile gal can transform a happy announcement into the saddest piece of news. The “Oh my gosh, I’m expecting!” news can send you into a downward spiral that can make you leave a room in tears. This “happy” news can make you tear up or cry internally for the next several hours or even days. But if you’re going to feel depressed about happy news, don’t you think you should feel equally upset about ALL exciting announcements too? The “I just bought a new puppy” news should at least make you angry and the “I just got my dream job” news should make you want to slap that b%&tch right across the face. You have a right to be furious at that friend who raised money for charity or that other friend who just bought a new house. The “I survived my disease” news should make you feel depressed and the “I found my lost cat” news should create a sad lump in your chest. If you are going to be upset at good news than you should probably be equally upset at ALL good announcements.
Your friend just lost her job, your co-worker has to go for surgery, your aunt just broke her leg. Bad news. But you probably won’t cry about it for the next few days. You only cry about happy news.
