Today, I moved out of my apartment by the highway and airport, and into a new place below people who blast loud music, stomp their feet, and slam doors throughout the night. I haven't had a decent night's sleep in over a year. FML

Well, I get disability because I can't walk well and am really sick so I barely make enough to put up my part of the rent, let alone move. My best friend/roommate has already complained.

Today, I was opening a present my boyfriend got me for my 21st birthday. What I unwrapped was a Kay jewelers box. Excited, I opened it to find a ring made out of a one dollar bill. FML
AkGirl1991's comment about their FML
This is the poster, and actually I had bought him a promise ring on valentines day. He used the box I gave him....I just thought. I might have been getting one in return. And no, I am not materialistic or ungrateful, and I know he can afford it. Just got my hopes up. If he had JUST given me the ring, it would have been great.

Today, my hatred for IKEA reignited when I rammed my knee into my hotel bathroom's plexiglass counter top while I was drying myself off. Their interior designer must have have been suffering brain damage when she matched everything with the floor tiles. FML
Skyra's comment about their FML
To the people that keep having a hissy fit about me hating IKEA — deal with it.
It's a matter of personal taste and I happen to dislike not only the design of their pieces but also the quality of their furniture; which is rubbish.
You like it? Fine, whatever. I couldn't care less. I don't like it and I'm not changing my mind just because you think I should like it. And, again, personally, to me, IKEA is overrated.
With that in mind, please feel free to hate me, or my furniture preferences, as much as you like; I'll be here in my little country having a life.

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
KittenNomNom's comment about their 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
ashleigh_anarchy's comment about their 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.
