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.

My Story

22 March 2012


I woke up feeling prertty full up and bloated so i avoided my usual tea in the monring and had a rest for it to go down! Victoria my carer who comes every thursdays came to pick me up and take me to the Huddersfield town stadium gym. We signed in  and started the class. There were chairs in  a circle with an exercise sheet behind them. We started by doing excercises sitting down following a trainer then we  went on the next seat to do the excercises behind the seats after one minute of doing that exercise you would move on to the next chair and do that excercise!
i enjoyed it and am looking forward to next week but my legs are like jelly now so ive been relaxing tonight!
M e and Victoria went to costa to have a cup of tea and a gingerbread man then we wernt home to chilld out out in the garden.
im looking forward to next weeks excericse sessions but i will have to change my feed dates areound so i dont feel so bloated on a thruday but over all a good day all round!
