To answer some questions I've been asked:
No, I'm not contagious and you will not become paralyzed if I touch you.
No, I am NOT super fragile.
No, I'm unable to walk but I get around just fine in my wheelchair.
And the most asked question:. Yes, people with spinal cord injuries can have healthy intimate relationships including sex.
Keep the questions coming. :-)
I like going to concerts, playing cards & boardgames, lifting weights, wheelchair aerobics, football, getting out and enjoying (more the summer activities..it's my favorite season since I'm a bit of a freeze baby) Mother Nature.
I've been trying to eat healthier although my weaknesses ... I do love my sweets and foods with melted cheese. Any good cooks around? Chinese and Mexican are my favorites. Still can't stand coconuts.
I have 2 cats, very much an animal lover. My personality is a bit off the wall, I like to joke around..definitely can laugh at myself..humor is a very sexy and appreciated quality to have, especially sarcastic..to a point. I'm attracted to witty banter.
I've been told by many that I'm unique, silly, and a caring person.
Also into education in life after spinal injujries. Made a video about .. life after spinal cord injury. Also recently was part of a video to be distributed to the schools and aimed at educating teenager drivers and the parents of distractive driving and seatbelt use through Toward Zero Deaths, TZD. I feel its importance to educate teenagers as they start their path into this crazy world before they get their license.. it's so easy to get distracted and without that experience. Just doing my part in hopes of getting to one person every time I speak since I wasn't equipped with the knowledge I needed as a teenager.
Giving advice but yet can't do that for myself...why is that..? As much as giving advice..I also like to give out a listening ear. Long stimulating conversations.
Giving big smooches and hugs.
Movies: I like all kinds but I must say Thrillers, Comedies, and HORROR are my faves.
Music: I enjoy Rock best (80's to today stuff). My taste varies depending on my mood. I really like Matchbox 20, Rob Thomas solo, and Daughtry. I'm not a big fan of rap nor most country...at least the real twangy type.
FOOD>>>GIMME... I ENJOY sweets ..I like dark chocolate, caramel and/or marshmallows in treats, and ice cream. I like fruit a lot..but for grapefruit. My fave types of foods are Chinese, Mexican, pastas, pizza, burgers, melt sandwiches...Not a fan of onions, peppers..unless finely chopped.
If a misunderstanding, why some people won't take a moment to help the other understand them.
What it be like to have a special someone and leave single status behind.
If you don't have pictures posted and something in your profile I probably won't reply.
