My family and friends were excited for me. I did not like my husband prior, you know, he got on my nerves, so when I came around to actually liking him, he wrote me a song called “Blue Square Blues.” I know this is probably personal, but it’s kind of fun, he wrote me a song about people who park in handicapped parking places that shouldn’t, and that won me over. I said, “he is the one.” And I just understood that he gets it, he totally gets that I’m in a wheelchair, but he doesn’t dwell on it, like it’s not something that he thinks about. Like half the time I think he forgets that I’m in a wheelchair, I think he thinks I’m Wonder Woman because I’m totally not. I’m like, “I really need help here,” you know. I’ll get in the car, and he will forget to put my wheelchair in the trunk, I’m like, “are you going to put this in the back?” So, he just doesn’t see the wheelchair and I love that about him. When I was saying that people, you watch people watch you, like from the get go, he was just like, “yeah, you are interesting, and I want to pursue that,” so yeah.
