A teen experienced an allergic reaction that was not only uncomfortable, but made her look unflattering through no fault of her own.

But that didn't stop her from facing the world and laughing about it.

Amiyah Evans from Clinton, Mississippi, woke up one morning and found that her lips were slightly swollen. She didn't think anything of it at first and passed it off as a minor nuisance that would eventually subside.

Unfortunately, it was only the beginning.


She told Buzzfeed News:

"I had small swelling on my lip, on the right side of my bottom lip. I thought that maybe I had gotten bit by something, or something like that, because it was really small."

This is a GIF of the 18-year-old before the reaction.


Her condition worsened.

"It got bigger every hour. It just kept growing and then I went to a clinic around 4:00 when I thought it was getting out of my hand."

Instead of hiding under the covers, Evans was a good sport about it and shared a photo of her lips looking at its absolute worst.

She even changed her handle name to "miyah w/da phat lips."

The doctor at the clinic prescribed her Benadryl and a steroid pack, but it did little to prevent the swelling. In fact, her lips ballooned to twice the size.



"I could talk but you could barely understand some things that I was saying," she said.

By 7 p.m. that night, her mother took her to the hospital. And they laughed their way there.


When your family is laughing at you, Evans thought it was pointless to wallow. Besides, it would be more concerning if her siblings had a look of alarm, right?

"I didn't really panic about it at first because my siblings were making fun of me anyway, so I just made a big joke out of it."

Thanks for the support, sisters.



The culprit was supposedly hamburger meat. But not just any hamburger meat. The patty was from Sam's Club, a detour from her usual go-to, which is Walmart.


Followers were genuinely worried for her.



She gave her consent for jokes to keep her occupied at the hospital.


Once her friends realized she wasn't suffering from any pain, the ribbing followed and Evans cackled right along with them.









Evans is now back at home and recovering with normal-sized lips.


We're glad she recovered. However, allergic reactions are no joke, and you never know how serious they can be. When in doubt, just go and get it checked, asap.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
