This Woman is Allergic to Practically Everything -Including Her Husband

Joanna Watkins suffers from mast cell activation syndrome, which means she is allergic to practically everything, including foods, chemicals, UV light and the smell of other people. She's even developed an allergy to her own husband, Scott. He can shower multiple times, put on sterile clothes and a face mask, but she will still go into anaphylactic shock if he gets too near her.
While most people with her condition find it treatable with medication, Joanna's isn't responding to any treatments, including chemotherapy. The only time she leaves her hermetically sealed room is to go to the hospital. She and her husband spend time together by watching tv in their respective rooms and texting to each other about what's going on. While their struggle is considerable, the two are remaining strong and trying to make it work.

And now, because they named the system Bluetooth, you know a little more about Scandinavian history. Commenters also added that in Sweden, your wireless communication is called Blåtand because that's how they spelled Harald's name.
