Kelsey Hough, who is 26 years of age, had to withdraw from the University of Washington, Tacoma because of her life-threatening peanut allergy. 

"If I was to have an anaphylactic reaction, my throat would start to close up and I would stop being able to breathe. I'll start choking," Hough told ABC News affiliate KOMO. "You stick it in your thigh. And then you have to hold it there for 10 seconds."

Hough acknowledged that she wasn't forced out of school because of her allergy. She added, "They didn't ask me to leave. But they sure didn't make it possible for me to stay."
