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.

Cold begone...

I'm finally over the worst bout of cold I've had for a long time! I still have a very sore little nose and cough but that's better than feeling bloody sick and feeling so crap and not having a temperature anymore! The cold was actually a good help to that!

Hopefully, the nurses can get here tomorrow for the PEG change due to the snow. Id rather have it done sooner than later, get it over and done with and not see the nurse for another 6 months i hope!
