A Battery Powered Life
Im 18 years old, I write about my personal experiences of growing up with congenital heart disease and everything els that comes with it.

My name is Charlotte, I was born with complex congenital heart problems. Ive had 16 heart surgeries and I need a heart transplant at some time in the future. I left school when I was 15 years old after suffering a cerebellar stroke as a result of this I suffered with weakness to my left side (which has now been resolved, thankfully) and permanent nausea. 18 years after I was born and here I am writing about all the experience i’ve had, in and out of hospital.

Im now studying Journalism at college and blogging is something that I enjoy doing. I write about my heart condition to help bring awareness and show everybody what other complications congenital heart disease can cause.
