15th to 21st is Mitochondrial awareness week!
I want people to know that you probably know someone who has a Mito condition
there are so many different types such as diabetes and strokes autism MS and many more!
This week is about raising awareness of it! as you know I talk about my own mitochondrial condition which is a rare type called Mitochondrial Multple DNA deletions and it affects people in different ways. I found out when I was 18 even though I went deaf at the age of 8 and no one knew why. Since finding out I have mito my life has changed a lot because its can be isolating with the fact that I couldn't cope with a job or going out with friends etc It also doesn't help that I am profoundly deaf from it which makes it harder to make friends. my confidence was beaten but over the years I have learnt to live with it and I can beat it! :)
I hope to pass this awareness on to bloggers and friends who read this blog because so many people suffer from it!
