When I was in rehab, there was a gentleman working as a counselor at Shepherd Center named Wayne Ware. And he gave a class about intimacy and sexuality, and basically covered the mechanics, the medicines that you can use to help, pumps and injections, padding and positioning, equipment, intimate rider, products available, websites, books, reference materials. And then a little conversation about being vulnerable and being able to be vulnerable with confidence with your intimacy partner, your sexual partner. So, that you could accept that this was kind of a new beginning. And that the first time we ever had sex as young adults or maybe even teenagers, that we probably weren’t any good at it and there was a steep learning curve there. And that we were going to need to kind of start in that same position, back to the beginning of that steep learning curve. And that we needed to allow ourselves the grace to not be as good at it as we were before our injuries. So, that was really good for me.
