'I have to accept it, and I wanted to show people that just because you have this, just own it.It doesn't have to be the focus of what you are, what you look like.''I want to put a different face to disability,' she said, adding that she hopes that her message will resonate with women who aren't disabled, too: 'We all have flaws [and] we all have things going for us, and for the first time I'm not hiding my catheter.

According to the ARIS study, there are now 150 Mormon women for every 100 Mormon men in the state of Utah—a 50 percent oversupply of women.

On a lark, I emailed my friend Cynthia Bowman,* a devout Mormon who grew up in Salt Lake City and returns there often, and asked her whether Mormon sex ratios are as lopsided as the ARIS study claimed.

Woman B: I am paraplegic due to a spinal cord injury. I've had depression on and off since I was 7, and anorexia for the last two years. How has your disability affected your relationship with your body, for better or for worse?

Woman A: Dysautonomia, which causes chronic fatigue, dehydration, fainting, and I also have an immune deficiency disease, which means I have a greater susceptibility to infections and a harder time than normal fighting them off. Woman D: I've had Ehlers-Danlos all my life, but it got a lot worse when I was 23.

'I'm hoping it will inspire others to just focus on the things they love about themselves and not be so critical,' she said last year, adding that she is sharing the pictures on Facebook and Twitter.

'I'm encouraging everyone to get on social media and mention something they love about themselves with the hashtag #What Makes Me Sexy.''The big thing that I am self-conscious about is the catheter I have to wear all the time,' she said.

A surgeon takes nerves from the network serving the inner thigh and reattaches them to the nerves to one side of the genitals.

As the nerves serving the thigh typically attach to the spine at a higher point than the nerves serving the genitals, the re-routing is able to restore sensation in patients with lower spine injuries.

But in truth, most women with disabilities experience the same desire for pleasure, love, and physical connection as any other woman. I'd rather not need to wear a catheter; it's not the most aesthetically pleasing device in the world! If I could have my stomach muscles back I'd be delighted — to have a toned stomach and better balance would be brilliant.
