Today, I woke up to a pain on my eyelid. I stumbled into the bathroom to find a huge tick attached to the edge of my eyelid. My dad used tweezers to pull it off, only the head stuck. I had to go to the doctor and sit there for 15 minutes so she could pull the rest out. FML

That blows, I am so sorry. First legit FML I've seen in awhile.

ewwww. oh god that's gross. hope you're alright now OP.

Get tested for lyme disease! It can be extremely debilitating

ouch. and #6 what r u talking about? the fml above about the guy getting his dick touched was legit 'rolls eyes'

it looks like that experience (puts on sunglasses) stuck with you

Then u the one who posted it. Lol

ewww... but how do you get a tick on your eyelid?? that would hurt so bad. fyl

hahaha when i first read it I thought it said huge dick instead of huge tick

^^^ win. Nuff said.

it's best to heat up a needle or nail and use it to burn the tick. They will get thier own head and and u take it off so much easier :P

I've got an earwig in my ass.

how do u get a tick on your eyelid?

rubbing alcohol works best on ticks they just leg go completely and fall themselves it doesn't even hurt..I've had experience

Rubbing alcohol, nail polish, fire, a heated up piece of metal. I got one on my neck once, and burned that bitch off with the nearest lighter... smart? No. Safe? No. Making me somewhat more of a badass than any of my guyfriends... Priceless.

YDI for having the capability of getting a tick even remotely near your eye.

omg imagine if he missed and got you straight in the eye 0.0 omg that would hurt

22 only if it's a dear tick

Man up don't be a pansy.

#58 Hey man, ticks suck! (Ha...Ha...Hahaha.)

love the name 62 lmao! :]

Ohhh nooo! Maybe it came off a pet?

Everyone knows not to pull a tick out with tweezers...

yes! you pull a tick out with tweezers that are hot at the end! u r supposed to hold the end in fire and then take it out becouse it will wiggle it's way out if you just pull it out it's pinchers will stay in you and the pincher are poisen and u have to have surgery to get them out.

It's true you're not supposed to take it out with tweezers... but the way my family has always done it is to hold a smoking match up to its back. I don't think I'd be happy about a smoking match near my eye. Would probably risk the tweezers.

I had a tick in my neck a few years ago, and when my mom pulled it out using hot tweezers, the head stayed in. The doctor in the E.R. told us that the best way to get a tick out is to cover it's back with vaseline because ticks breathe through their bodies when they're sucking blood. It really works. We tried it out the next time our dog got a tick.

My mum took the one in my neck off with a rag I think...... it hurt like hell....

Yeah, the vaseline is the best option when it comes to tics

Sounds like that ticked you off.

Licaptain your dog looks so sad :( Op fyl.

D: Ugh, definitely an FML!

thats really gross D: im sorry OP! fyl!

to the 39 who said he/she deserved how on earth did she deserve to wake up with a tick on her eyelid. cmon, seriously

Well, you do have to consider the fact that most people know not to pull a tick off at first sight. And then... there's the fact that this person has access to the Internet where they could've looked up information regarding this type of situation. On the other hand, they were most likely in a state of high panic and could not think straight or clearly enough to plan out their steps, but yeah, FTL.

Stop sleeping with dogs!
