Today, I found out I do not have a fast metabolism, I've actually had a tape worm living inside me for 3 years. FML
I agree, your life sucks 62 270
You deserved it 3 700

Iskylite tells us more.

the doctor said it could've lived inside me for 30 years. I'm glad they got it out :) and yes I'm feeling much better :)

How did you not notice for so long tape worms can be huge

Look on the bright side, you're thin as a tapeworm! Jack, that sucks, did you get it out?

Hopefully you won't get another one for tape 2....eh.

#28 His picture says it all.

I put his pic on my door to scare the Jehova's

Pray to the Lord that that thing hasn't found your brain.

The worm or number #1s pic?

Um, the worm.

they're flat and grow in coils around the intestines...

69 - I read this FML and got super squeamish and then I read your comment...and I'm so grossed out right now. *shivers*

Glad you're on the mend! My friends and family are appalled that I can eat the way I do and still look the way I do...I've mentioned that I'm a triathlete, they've mentioned tapeworms. Now I'm kinda worried. Did you feel like you had something in there? Did you have any other symptoms? Thank you for your share because I really hadn't considered a tapeworm...

As I am a very active person also. I think me working out a lot took my mind off it. that is, until I've started feeling sick and had very bad symptoms. what had me knowing is that when I went to the restroom it was more like a liquid (diahria) and could see the eggs. so I got help immediately now my stomach feels a lot better and there's no more pressure.

I also have the 18 foot monster in a jar on my dresser :)

Is it dead? Why'd you keep it?

well its been inside me for 3 years so I would say we're pretty close friends. and yes its dead haha

haha oh wow that made me laugh hard. good thing halloweens coming up next month; youve got an awesome prop

That's a fun conversation starter for future girlfriends "Hey what's that?" "Oh that's just the worm i had in me for 3 years" Cue screaming girl running out the front door.

I'm so disturbed right now it isn't funny.

It actually probably wasn't the eggs you were seeing if you say it in your poop. Those I believe are only visible under a microscope. You were seeing the tapeworm proglatid. Or a segment of the tapeworm. It's creepy and gross. Congrats on your trophy though. That's one hell of a story.

yep last night they got the sucker out :)

How do they get it out? that's crazy. glad it's gone

Show it anyway

They can cause severe medical problems over time. Op is lucky not to die of mal nourishment.

#4 just needs to stay in the tanning bed

That's why they used to sell them, before consumer safety laws

#4 Tape worms can eventually kill you if they are not removed. Because they steal all the healthy nutrients from your food and leave you just barely enough to function. People used to end up dying from malnourishment. At one time tapeworms were considered a dietary cure, but not anymore. So OP needs to (if he hasn't already) get it cut out.

pinworms too?

Eww nasty!

Aha that's your secret!

Doctors hate him! One easy tip for weight loss!

That is just....ugh. Sucks to be you, OP.

Yay for weight loss, am I right? Heh.. heheh....

No, you are very wrong. Idiot.

That's just crazy, my uncle had a tapeworm and realized within a few months. Lost around 40 pounds but got really sick.
