I think the most important thing, if you are newly injured, to remember – when you’ve got a lot of questions going on – is that love is still very much an option for you. I honestly thought that I would never get married. Not so much because I couldn’t walk but more so because of the care I would have to give myself. The cathing, the daily regiments that were different than the ordinary. And I thought that would prevent me from finding true love. But in fact, I think it is what gives me even a better marriage. My husband loves me just the way I am. Challenges and all. And because of this, I have a great, wonderful marriage. So love is definitely an option. Don’t give up on love at all.
