Well, as far as sex, like I said, I was a very sexually active person, and when I first woke up with the injury, the only thing I was worried about was why this catheter was in me and I can't feel it. To be honest with you, being on a wheelchair teaches you something else. It's like, for one, the feelings that you get when you see somebody that you're attracted to is not physical, it's mental—because I still feel the same way if I see somebody I like, I still get the same urges but the physical aspect doesn't happen. And another thing is, just like your senses if you're blind or something else, your other sense get heightened. I just learn my way around and found out you don't need to be pouncing on somebody for somebody to be feeling good.
