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 or mitochondrial disease RRM2B as my professor Sir Dough Turnbull calls it! I have had since birth but I didn't find out this til I was 19. I have had 2 cochlear implants (at the age of 8 and then i lost the 1st cochlear implant in my right ear after 7 years due to a bad, accruing 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.

Even more Christmassy stuff...

With the help of my brother to help me what the santa was saying,I put subs on this video! It was so tricky listening to what the santa was saying because it's an very fast up tempo song so we had to keep repeating the santa over and over again til we got the words that he was saying right! I got some words correct like the Merry Christmas and other lyrics BUT even my brother had a hard time knowing what certain words were and he's hearing! But we got there in the end!
