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.

Hot, Hot, Hot...

Hasn't it been warmmm?? Although I'm loving the sunshine summer, I'm having to be careful about this heat since a few years ago, when I was a bit more underweight than I was now, and we had a heatwave like this, I managed to faint and bang my head on the wall.
The other night I felt so dizzy I couldn't sleep that I had to text my brother to bring me a banana to feel better again!
I feel better now I have got used to it hehe but according to the weather man it is due to get cooler but still warm which is fine by me!
Just hope its nice and sunny for my hols next week!
