Two years ago in the summer I received a bite of some kind on my forehead, and it became infected. I kept it bandaged, but it was still unsightly. Friends who were not Christian Scientists urged me to seek medical attention, but knowing it would be healed through prayer, I declined.

In my prayer I saw that the condition was not a real part of my spiritual identity but an illusion of material sense. My true nature as a child of God reflects perfection. I had help from several Christian Science practitioners at various times. I will always be grateful for their love and inspiration.

Many quotations from the Bible helped me, especially this one (II Cor. 10:3-5): "Though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." My goals were to realize more clearly the nothingness of matter, and to develop humility.
