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.

So fast...

Christmas has come and gone really fast this year... I guess when you are a kid it takes agesss before Santa comes and you just want to open your presents! I had a nice time during Christmas but it just went by very fast this year for some reason. I have been keeping myself preoccupied with a painting kit I got for Christmas.

My eyes have been very tired over the christmas period and I'm feeling I must do the eyelid lift procedure and that I must at least give the doc a chance to talk about it and what it involves. even if it scares the bee jeebies about of me.

A New Year A new start.
