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 which I have had since birth but I didnt find out this til I was 19. I have had 2 cochlear implants (at the age of 8 and then 15) I lost the 1st cochlear implant in my right ear after 7 years due to a bad, accuring 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.

Stinking cold...

Sorry I've not blogged for a bit. Me n Mum have been trying to sort out the brow suspension date out. I've also caught a summer cold which isnt sitting well with me at mo. I'm not sleeping very well because of the blocked nose, sweats and basically feeling crap! I have my birthday on Saturday too! So I'm hoping it will be gone or at least a bit better by then. I've been putting my feed on every night to ensure I can fight it quicker as well. Due to having no sleep my eyes look even bloody smaller! But i guess that what 2 nights of no sleep does to you! I've got a chesty cough but I should be ok because ive got a good cough to cough out any horrible stuff! Whereas when I got pneumonia I was little as 5 stone and very weak so I couldnt fight that off. My parents have reassured me that as long as I got a good strong cough i will be fine :)
I can be a worry wart at times urgh...
