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.

Snowy Feet brrr...

As the snow arrives, I am trying to keep warm as possible. I have been out in the snow on outings to my friends and family some near some far away and the car has been freeeeeeezing! My body seems to warm up apart from my feet. My feet take a while to warm up even with 2 pairs of socks on! At least it has stopped snowing for now and the roads are getting gritted! I am looking forward to spending christmas with the family and doing the usual xmassy things! :D
