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

i get so fed up of these "internet trolls" do they not have anything better to do with their lives other than upsetting people through a computer screen?? that makes them cowards! 
im not about to step down for something i believe in just coz someone called me "ugly" "lazy!" "tired" "on drugs" i am NONE of those things im certainly not lazy! i go to gym once a week and try and hang out with my friends as much as they have free time from their jobs. 
im not about to step down and let them win im not depressed or sad about my disease ive adapted to it and thats how i get on with my life!
