Debbie claims she is allergic to almost everything, including her husband of 35 years, Kelly. Debbie admits to making her husband strip and shower to get rid of allergens the minute he steps into the house.

She insists on taping up all the AC duct vents, she stores her clothes in sealed bags and washes their dishes in the swimming pool.

Kelly claims his wife’s obsessive behavior has completely devastated their marriage and family.
