Today, I realized how bad my feelings of inadequacy compared to other women and jealousy are when I started thumbing down songs on Pandora simply because the cover art had a better looking woman than me on it. FML

Larentiah's comment about their FML

OP here. You guys, you make me laugh. I AM seeking help, I have a counselor and a psychiatrist and a loving boyfriend who is trying to help me get over these problems. I'm bipolar and have an anxiety disorder. I HAVE these problems (the inadequacy thing) because I've been cheated on many times in my past, and was ridiculed to high hell in all my years of school from age 7 to 18, and from truly horrible stepparents at home, culminating in my hospitalization for depression.

Some of things I've seen people say about me, I would like to answer. No, I don't give a shit about cover art with males, glad my other comments make you laugh?, isn't the point of FML to be a whining bitch to some degree, no I'm not forever alone: see third sentence of this comment, and lastly, I'm very aware I need help thanks: anything else obvious to state?

To those of you giving me encouragement - thank you, it means more than you know. For those of you insulting me and all the other rude comments - fuck off. Everyone has insecurities, it's not like I chose to have this happen to me.

Today, I was sitting at the mall food court, and wearing a "Blink If You Want Me" shirt. A guy walked by, saw my shirt, and made a point of holding a staring contest with me before moving on. FML

Ahahah everyone, the shirt was a joke.
I wasn't really offended, we ended up becoming friends afterwards. A lot of you are right, he has a great sense of humor and he was just teasing. It didn't kill my self esteem or anything of that sort, I just thought it might give someone a laugh (:
Thanks for all the comments and such~

Today, everyone in my house has a horrible stomach flu. My two toddler nephews don't understand that they need to throw up in the bathroom, so they just blow chunks everywhere. I have to clean it up, while trying not to do the same. FML

AndelleRae's comment about their FML

This is mine.

They are two and three years old, and while I tried to give them little buckets, they didn't always make it in. It's my job to watch them because I am their full time live in nanny. My sister works third shift and her husband recently passed away, so it's down to me to take care of them.

Everyone is over it now, but it was a pretty nasty couple of days, for sure.

Today, someone actually thought it was appropriate to compare my mother's death to the death of their cat. FML

Just to follow things up.
It has only been a month since she passed away. She was pretty much my best friend. She had been sick for all of my life and I looked after her for as long as I remember. In the last three months she was completely bedridden. She was a very strong woman and was expected to live 20 years less than she did, but I absolutely couldn't believe it when she died because of how much she carried on and of course I cared about it more than anything. It was the hardest thing I've ever experienced, and am still experiencing. The cat in question was a stray cat, and I posted this because why the fuck would I post an FML on the day she died? I can tell you now I was doing a lot more important things. This is my reaction to an idiot one month later, who said 'Sorry about your mum. I know how you feel, my cat died'. Nothing should be more important than the relationship with your mother. If you never got to have a good relationship with yours, I'm very sorry. But yeah, I have lost pets and I was distraught but NOTHING can compare. If you haven't lost a close parent, you can't imagine.

Today, I discovered how startling it is to wake up by having your cat springboard off your face. The intended prey? Two fornicating geckos on the ceiling. FML

JukeboxValkyrie's comment about their FML

To everyone who keeps asking "How did they get on your ceiling?" and "Why are they in your house?" Geckos are native to Florida, they can crawl through the tiniest places and the tips of the digits on their limbs are like mini suction cups, giving them the ability to climb most vertical surfaces as well as being upside down. My ceiling is also popcorn style so there was plenty to hold onto. And yes, I'm almost certain one had a foreign accent...though I'm not sure which.

Today, I got my hands on some meet and greet passes for a concert. My fiancé and I got our picture taken with the band. A few moments later, in my excitement, instead of texting the picture to my friend, I accidentally deleted it. FML

Today, I got pulled over. When the cop asked where I was coming from, reflexively I said, "Your mom's house." FML

Today, my mom was freaking out about me handling a CD-ROM with my bare hands. When I asked her what all the commotion was about, she said she was worried that I would catch "one of those computer viruses" she'd heard about on the news. FML

aliezzedine's comment about their FML

Okay people I've sat around watching the comments ensue for a long ass time, and it's now my turn to clarify some shit:

1-My mom is not dumb, she has an average intelligence.
2-She has not handled any piece of the modern technology we all know so well in her life except the phone maybe.
3-She is actually blonde lol!
4-For those who said I made your day, it's a pleasure mates!
5-Those who are being disrespectful to my mother, who is actually the sweetest thing ever, go get a life people it was an honest mistake. It was stupid misconception I gotta admit! But trust me, she got plenty of brains to go around the table.
4-Some people are giving some really hilarious suggestions, you my friends are awesome!

Cheers (Yes I'm the author of the post for all of you with the low IQs)

Today, my roommate did his laundry. Unfortunately, he didn't check his pockets before he washed them. There's now sticky, melted gum all over the washer and I'm left to clean it up. FML

StickySituations's comment about their FML

OP here, and i realized i made a huge mistake in my FML. This actually took place in the dryer not the washer. I'm not sure why i made that silly mistake. However for anyone who this may ever happen to i managed to get it off rather easily by soaking a fresh dryer sheet in cold water and scrubbing away at the gum.... and yes, it really was gum.

Today, my husband bleached his hair so, "our future kids will have blond hair too." I'm already married to this guy. FML

I thought it was blond for boys and blonde for girls. Like you wouldn't call a brown haired boy a brunette!

Today, while coming back from skiing, a woman asked me if I could help her carry her stroller. I put my skis down and helped her. When I came back to pick my skis up, I saw two guys running away with my gear. You try chasing someone while wearing ski boots. FML

magzulism's comment about their FML

Hey, OP here.
I'm finally gonna answer some of your questions:
1. Yes, i do believe it was a set up. The woman and the thiefs were definitely working together.
2. They were old skis, I bought myself a pair of awesome new ones later :)
3. I didn't go skiing alone. I live in Switzerland and was helping a friend of mine -who is an elementary school teacher- as a skiing instructor for his 9 year old school kids.
He teaches and lives in a tiny village about an hour from where I live, and since I don't have a car, I went there by train. So obviously i rode the train back home alone.

The only good thing about the whole story is that I didn't have to carry my skis back home. ha. ha.
Feel free to message me, if you have any questions.
