// Unpublished Interview Q&A

The following is an excerpt from an interview I did for publication in South magazine (the offices are based locally and the magazine is nationally distributed). I was asked to list three things that might be misconceptions regarding quadriplegia. These were my answers:

Number one: I am not deaf, I am paralyzed. There’s a difference. Do not yell at me and/or look at me funny when you talk to me. Again, I am not deaf.

Number two: most people think quadriplegics cannot move any of their limbs. This is not true. There are many levels of paralyzation. Every injury is different, and every person is unique in their situation.

Number three: sex. It can happen. It does happen. We like for it to happen.
