A Utah Teen Is Allergic To Water?! Get The INSANE Details HERE!

no title

A 17-year-old teen from Utah has an allergy that NOT a lot of other people have!

When Alexandra Allen was 12, she found out that she's allergic to water and that any contact with H2O will cause her skin to have an allergic reaction.

But despite the strange allergy that the teenager has, she's still amazingly optimistic and has a good head on her shoulders!

In a recent interview, Alex's father recalled the time his daughter was first diagnosed and what will happen to her if she swims in pools or fresh water lakes!

Her father said:

"Lexie broke out in an unbearable rash and had bruises on her elbows and knees because she was bleeding into her joints. At that point, we were pretty concerned. It didn't seem to matter what kind of water she came into contact with – chlorinated, hard, soft, fresh or distilled. They all caused a severe reaction."

After some testing, Allen found out that she has a rare condition called aquagenic urticaria that makes people break out in hives or welts thirty minutes after going into water.

So while she's had to make A LOT of changes in her life these days - like only taking five minute showers twice a week and cutting off her long hair to avoid sweating - she's speaking out now for a VERY good reason!

She said:

"We joked that we'd both found a way to avoid doing dishes. I'm told that someday, my throat might swell when I drink water, but if there's one thing I've learned since getting this, it's that we all have things to deal with in life. I'm hoping that by talking about this weird disease, maybe it will help the next 12-year-old who freaks out because she learns she can't be a mermaid. But I know that things could be worse. At least, I'm not allergic to dogs."

Lolz! So true!

At least the teenager is learning to cope with this strange condition! Hopefully she'll be able to have a normal life albeit one without a lot of swimming pools or baths!

But like she said - it could be worse! And she seems like an awesome kid so that should make everything a bit easier!

Kellie Pickler Gave Up Her Cat For Her Allergic Husband

Filed under: Sad SadKellie PicklerCat

kellie-pickler-cat-husband-allerg.jpg

Kellie Pickler has been married to her husband, Kyle Jacobs, for over a year now.

They seem to have a very solid marriage, though there was one big issue that could have torn them apart.

Kellie said:

"I love Kyle, he's my best friend. The only complaint that I would have with my husband is that I had to give up my cat."

She and her cat, Pickles, had been inseparable since she adopted him in 2006.

"I adopted him from an animal shelter out in Tennessee. He was my best friend. He went with me everywhere."

The problem was that if she wanted to marry Jacobs, she would have to get rid of her best friend.

"My husband's allergic to everything – he's, like, allergic to air. So, unfortunately, I had to find my cat Pickles a home with a family back in North Carolina."

At least Pickles has a good home now. It must've been tough to give up your best friend like that.

"I cried, I was devastated. My husband's going to be so sad when he reads this."

It must've been so tough! But we'd hope her wonderful husband makes up for it.

"Every time I look at my hand, I go, 'Good God.' What's behind this ring is such unconditional love, trust and respect. I see my husband every time I look at my ring. I'm a blessed woman – I have a good man."

So even though she had to give up Pickles, she's still a cat lover and does what she can to help out cats everywhere through charity and advocacy work.

"Cats kind of get slighted sometimes. And there's the stereotype about people that love cats – they call us crazy cat ladies. I'm crazy, but it's not because I love cats."

We love that you love cats and we're sure that cats love you too!

Whole Foods Expands Wines With No Sulfites Added

Filed under: FoodAlcohol

Whole Foods NSA wine

If you love to drink wine, but are sensitive to the sulfites typically found in the alcoholic beverage, check out Whole Foods expanding list of USDA Certified NSA wines.

Most locations carry between 10 and 20 selections of wine with no sulfites added, but the retailer has recently become the first to carry NSA wines from Spain and Italy!

If mixed drinks is your thing, try TY KU premium sake, which is also sulfite-free and can be found at the organic grocery store.

Although sulfites occur naturally in the process of making beer and wine, experts estimate that 1 out of every 100 people is sensitive to the compounds.

Sulfites have long been banned for use on raw fruits and vegetables, but can still be found in a heck of a lot of processed foods. If you're trying to avoid the substance, make sure to check the labels on all items!

Allergic To Dogs Al Roker Pitched A Dog TV Show

Filed under: TV NewsHealthDog

al-roker-dog-allergy.jpg

On a recent flight, in first class, Al Roker refused to swap seats with Stine Schyberg, the wife of Van Halen's Alex Van Halen so the couple could sit together.

He refused to switch seats because that would have brought him one seat closer to a small dog in a crate that was a row behind and three seats over.

Because he said he's allergic to dogs.

Now it seems some are questioning the truth of that statement.

This is due to the fact that he pitched an idea for a dog reality show back in 2005.

The pitch for the show read:
