    Its all awful, and I feel like that can add to our overarching anxiety and sense of doom. Sorry friend.

    I am fb friends with the girlfriend of my best friends brother-in-law. She added me because we often chat at birthday parties for my Jeff Goldblum-daughter, who is her niece (not legally but they use the title). She is 25. I've known her boyfriend since he was 12 years old but again, maybe only see him once a year or so.

    She just shared to her entire friends list an invite for a drive by baby shower. They are hosting it themselves and this is their second kid. It's not technically a party, the invite has registry info and requests people drive by their home within a 2 hour window on a designated date to drop off their gifts and receive a "treat bag" to take with them when they leave.

    Unfortunately the cringe didn't end there.

    My friend shared with me an awkward situation. A few years ago this couple had a surprise baby (as in Surprise... that stomach pain you are feeling is labour and the last few months of weight gain and weird symptoms was pregnancy). The family was really supportive, my friend especially. The couple are both 25 but they both were still living at home and working pretty low wage jobs. After the baby was born Mom and baby moved in with him and his parents. I found out about a month ago that they were pregnant again and didn't think much of it.

    But then I got the full story.

    She found out she was pregnant again and wasn't sure if she wanted to keep it. She didn't tell anyone, including her boyfriend. Instead, she shared with her co-workers. She apparently talked about it daily, mostly about how she wanted to terminate but wasn't sure completely. What she didn't know was one of the co-workers lives next door to an Aunt of her boyfriends. This co-worker approached the Aunt to ask her to try and talk some sense into the Mom-to-be. She wasn't talking about the abortion, but rather that someone needed to tell her to talk about this with her partner and her Doctor and not her co-workers some of whom have been having difficulty conceiving and are really struggling listening to her talk about this on a daily basis. The Aunt ended up telling a lot of the family members what was going on but none of them talked to Mom-to-be or told the boyfriend. As a result most of the family knew she was pregnant and considering an abortion before the Father found out. She eventually told the Father after she had decided to keep it.

    TL/DR everyone in his family found out his girlfriend was pregnant and considering abortion and they all knew for at least a few weeks before he found out.

    Saw a comment on a "should I take a flight/vacation" post that was "Would you rather live with memories or regrets? I say go!" Um, I'd rather live. If you go and catch COVID I think you'll have a lot of regrets. I'm not sure you're communicating your point right.

    There’s living with memories and then there’s regrets because this is potentially a deadly decision. People just don’t seem to understand that it’s called a global pandemic for a reason.

    Not me though! I'm not old or sick! It's just the flu! Totes worth the risk of getting it a d spreading it to people I know and love and even strangers who might be susceptible and die! #makingmemories
