    Allergic to Life

    One-in-three people will suffer some kind of allergy at some stage in their lives. For most it means a runny nose, a rash, or sensitivity to certain foods. But not for 30-year-old Johanna Watkins . The bizarre and terrifying reality she faces is being allergic to life itself. She suffers from a rare illness that means almost any contact with anything or anyone triggers life-threatening anaphylactic reactions. Off limits for Johanna are most foods, smells, sunlight, friends, her parents ... and even her husband.

    British Championship disability gymnast, Natasha Coates, 22, is allergic to everything. She has won 19 British titles and placed first in the British Disability Championships.

    After years of suffering from continuous allergic reactions, 22 year old Natasha was finally diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome.

    Despite her daily battles with her allergies, this has not stopped Natasha from pursuing her passion for gymnastics.

    See how a woman who claims she's allergic to almost everything lives her daily life. And, hear what she says she makes her husband do if he wants to hug her.
