Welcome To My Blog...

This blog follows my journey of 2 different cochlear implants and my condition: Multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions I have started this blog 15 yrs too late but ill try my best to fit it all in! I have packed a lot of medical jargon into my life since I was 8.

There has been happiness and tears but I've come through it all with my family and my friends.I'm profoundly deaf as a result of a condition called Multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions which I have had since birth but I didnt find out this til I was 19. I have had 2 cochlear implants (at the age of 8 and then 15) I lost the 1st cochlear implant in my right ear after 7 years due to a bad, accuring ear infection (which I couldnt fight off because of my mitochondrial condition) at the age of 15 and had a 2nd one implanted in my left ear that same year which I have now.

Spooky Going ons...

What with Halloween looming, I couldn't not post this spooky picture of the pumpkin that my friend Ben created, how evil does it look!!! I also challenged him to make one with a cochlear implant so watch this space to see if he does and I'll put it as the main blog picture on the day of Halloween! (31st october) :-P
Mwah ha ha ha!
