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.

My Story

15 August 2013


O M G gym Is getting tougher I set my target of 30 mins on the treadmill but could only manage 15 mins before my legs and I was exhausted! But I will work my way up to it hopefully! I even went on my birthday coz I wanna get stronger! I went for an ice cream after it since it was a nice day. all in all it was a tiring day and couldn't wait for my bed!
THEN my mum decided to wake me up at 9 oclock to see if I wanted to go see nana in Middlesbrough... of course I love seeing my nana but then again I wanted to sleeeeeeep! at least I can have a longer lie in tomorrow! zzz...
