I had never had sex before my injury, because I was so young. But growing up with SCI was tough, and really affected my self-image, which really affected my dating life. I resented that I felt so excluded from dating. I had to start viewing myself as a “catch,” as a sexual person, and start being fearless. Then everything was a lot easier—it’s true what they say, confidence is key. -JM, T10 SCI
