Today, my 18th birthday, I woke up vomiting with a temperature of 104 degrees. After I settled back in bed with some water, my mom said, "This is how you're supposed to feel on your 21st birthday, not your 18th." FML
I agree, your life sucks 7 179

If you lived in Australia it's perfectly appropriate. I was wrecked the morning of my 18th from drinking and shenanigans the night before.

Funny, I didn't realize hospital grade fevers were meant to be a 21st birthday tradition. Damn it, I missed out!

Perhaps this is your European side? Sorry, OP, I hope you're feeling better now and this is no actual "today" fml

They're talking about hangovers.

That's the joke

I know she's talking about a hangover, but OP is running a fever.

your mom has a good sense of humor

All jokes aside, I'm pretty sure if you have a temperature of 104, you need to go to the hospital.

definitely should. anything above 39.5 c (103 f) is quite serious

Just for future reference water makes you vomit more. You have to wait a few hours before you eat or drink anything after vomiting.

I haven't heard of this before, but I would try drinking Gatorade or Pedialyte if possible, those are better options than water when vomiting & might stay down a little better. Feel better OP!

I don't really understand why this is considered an FML

Fever on birthday. What's not an FML about it?

I think the lack of maternal sympathy he/she is getting is part of the F my L equation.

The only thing I could think of is ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Come to Europe. We have a lower drinking age, you can feel 21 when you are 18.

At 104 you're supposed to go to the hospital

in australia we celebrate both...just pretend your an aussie for a day!
