Today, I found out my cousin - who suffers from bipolar disorder - shot herself in the chest and has only a 20 percent chance of living. I told my boyfriend, while crying, and he held me for a few minutes. As soon as I got quiet, he pulled out his iPhone and started playing a shooter game. FML

@31 I don't know about you but someone must earn my respect. Failing to commit suicide (as of the time of the FML) isn't the best way to do that. Sympathy only applies to those people I care about so yes maybe have some sympathy but sympathy isn't going to change anything so it is pointless.

you reminded him he was about to level up :p
and who says 20% chance? it's always 50% die, or live.
anddd if she wanted to die why not let her? she's gonna feel even worse when she finds out she can't even do that right.

What was he suppose too say? If it was his cousin then maybe he might feel something, but for someone he doesn't know, why would he care, i'm sure i wouldn't. Plus who leaves a gun close too someone with a disorder? i'd just be thinking of the stupidity of the people that supposebly take care of her.

take a statistics course, that's not true. that's like saying there's a 50% chance of winning the lottery, because you either win or lose. just because there are two possible outcomes doesn't mean they're both equally likely.

anyway OP I'm sorry about your situation and hopefully your boyfriend just wasn't thinking when he did that. don't let some of these comments affect you, some people are just really rude and need to grow up.

The fact that he couldn't bother caring about the fact that his girlfriend was hurting enough to stay off a game (and a shooter no less) for the night/day. doesn't matter if he gives two shits about the cousin.

that's not something to laugh at, she has a mental disorder and she might die but ofcourse none of you assholes care about anything that happens on this earth unless it has to do with deep fried donuts. this is why our society is de-evolving

I call fake. if she was bipolor and shot herself, wouldn't she only be shooting half of herself? so if one half has 20 percent chance the other has 100. Ergo, averaged out she actually has 60 percent chance to live. you're welcome and have a nice day.

you obviously have a big family and/or aren't close to any of your cousins. one of my cousins is my best friend and if I found out something like this i'd be devastated. besides, 20% isn't a big chance.

OP, I'm sorry. hopefully your cousin will be ok.

I have to remind myself of that all the time. like if I'm about to try something dangerous I'll look around for the X button. when I don't find it I'm like "oh yeah. this is real life. I shouldn't play on the train tracks because I could die forever."

I almost ended up in some embarassing situations.
