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.

To my Mum...

Who has been through everything medical with me and been there through the HIGH and the lows of my cochlear and mitochondrial medical journey. She cheered me up when I was down and we laughed at the funny times. I'm very thankful she's there and I don't know what id do without her. So to show you how much you mean to me Mum I made this for you I hope you have a WONDERFUL Mothers Day! Love you lots! xxxxxxxx
