Today, I turned 18. My parents remembered that I loved German chocolate cake, so I awoke to a hot, fudge-filled chocolate cake with a slice cut out just for me. I've been lactose-intolerant for 8 years. As I cried, my mom handed me tissues, while eating the "Happy" part of my cake. FML

OP discovered a cake that they fell madly in love with 8 or more years ago. 8 years ago, they could no longer have this cake or anything else containing dairy products. Today is their 18th birthday. Their family made OP the previously mentioned cake that OP has not been able to eat for 8 years and still cannot eat. OP cried because they can't eat this delicious birthday cake and evidently, their family doesn't know her very well. OP's mom ate a piece of the cake which had a smiley face or something on it. Do you get it now? It's not that hard to understand...

Dude, who cares about the aftermath, eat it anyway.

93 is drunk

Um... Lactaid pills?

Please delete 93's comment, FML, it was a worthless waste of my time trying to understand what they said. They are of no value of society or to FML.

I'm severely lactose intolerant and can eat german chocolate cake so I think OP would have been fine. also lactaid pills work wonders, I can even eat ice cream if I take them.

I really hope op's a girl cuz you should u should nvr seperate a girl from her chocolate. if op's a boy though, suck it up nd rub some dirt on it.

FAKE AND GAY

wow 93, ur splelling suucks

fucking crybaby

Oh boo hoo take your pill and enjoy your cake, there are people out there with real problems that aren't " I can't eat cake feel bad for me"

mageoreh- no ur the bitch

what the hell, that makes no sense

Ironically, your comment is a waste of time, too.

why would ya cry over cake ... thats what im not getting..

Op wanted to point out how frustrating not getting what you want is...you don't get the comment, she doesn't get her cake. Touche Op, touche.

surprise! here's the happiness to your cake!

that's good right now. time to make me some cake

so does yours

so does yours

@ 100: the first thing i thought of (before considering that op was being a huge bitch baby) was that all they had to do was consume lactase, which enables "lactose-intolerant" people to eat any dairy product they choose. it's simply a lactase deficiency. lactaid is a major option, but any enzyme formula that contains lactase would negate the problem. |the kid|

Did u know there I'd medicine today for the lactose part?? Ya that's has been here for a while because it's like.. THE 20 CENTURY!!!!! DURRR

shut up f.cktard

meant 93, ditect answer didn't work

well, no. because cake has nothing to do with milk.

lactose intoleranc means you can't digest milk well, a milk allergy would prevent you from eating cake. if it's the former, the cake prob won't hurt you. I'm lactose intolerant and eat cake with no issue. if it's an allery, then fyl

Guys, I'm lactose intolerant and regret to tell you that this guy needs to grow a sack and take lactaid, a cheap ass PILL THAT YOU CAN TAKE

#96 no shit Sherlock.

TO ANYONE WHO MENTIONED THAT LACTOSE INTOLERANCE ISN'T SERIOUS, AND LACTAID PILLS WILL LET YOU EAT DAIRY. This isn't always the case. I am very severely lactose intolerant (not a milk allergy, LACTOSE INTELOERANCE) and Lactaid pills don't do anything for it. I can't eat dairy, unless it's the smallest amount. The worst part of it is the cake... Trust me, I should know. OP isn't being whiny; Their parents are ignorant assholes if they didn't know that she couldn't eat her favourite cake, or possibly just didn't care. I can feel OP's pain, due to the fact that my favourite cake is Ice Cream Cake, especially the fudge part. If I could have a cake made entirely out of that fudge and cookie crumbles, I would probably die of happiness. However, I rarely have it because

Sorry, didn't get a chance to finish, my computer did something funny. But anyways, you get the point. Sometimes lactaid does nothing, and there's nothing you can do about it.

He liked it before then

This got REALLY long.

Wait. New FML update? Is all fixed? No keyboard still showing after posting? D;

oh haha I l always thought that was just me :D

Eat it, and shit ALL OVER THEM

lmfao should ate it n crap it later

I know right?! LOL

Totally worth it

lol. parenting fail

nvm not first...stupid refresh

just take some of the pills that help digest lactose.....? that's what my brother does

There is very little milk in a proper german chocolate cake. It's not milk chocolate and the fudge isn't made with milk. Trust me on this, large people know their cakeology.

Why would you cry though??? Really

I don't see the FML. Just take the lactase pills and eat the cake...

That was my thought process, I'm lactose intolerant and if I want to eat something with a lot of lactose in it I take a double dose of lactase supplement and a dose of Imodium before eating it. Works like a charm for most stuff. There's also a ton of dairy stuff out there with lactase supplements already added in, so if I'm making stuff on my own that's dairy rich I use that stuff and there isn't even a need to pop a couple of pills beforehand. If she's been lactose intolerant for 8 years I really can't imagine her *not* having any of this stuff hanging around the house. If she had a milk allergy/intolerance, this would be more understandable but lactose intolerance is so common that there's a ton of options out there for her that this doesn't make sense.

that's what I thought! just take the damn pill:)

How do you love chocolate if youre lactose intolerant?

chocolate doesn't have to contain lactose at all. only if you mix it with dairy products.

Wtf? You just made yourself sound like a complete dumbass.

no I didn't I was sooner than u

you're fake

Erm, no. The 'happy' was not candy. It was frosted on the slice that OP's mom ate.

Everyone loves chocolate.

Says they been lactose intolerant for 8 years so they must have tried chocolate before that.

That sucks. But still, crying over cake? A little ridiculous.

I cry because I have an allergy to strawberries. They smell so sweet and I know they taste so good. And the emotions can be so overwhelming that it can cause tears
