You're going to have to buck up and just pull it out. Grab it right above the hole, where the bar curves. Pull out straight. Push down the trem itself by the fine tuners while you are pulling so the angle of the pull doesn't change. Come on now, we can get through this!

if you're really having difficulties i suggest you go to a dentist. This procedure is very similar to pulling out a cavity. If nothing works, you can send the guitar to me and i'll pull it out for ya
