When I was hospitalized for kidney trouble, my doctor told me I would never be completely healthy for the rest of my life, that I would have to take medicine as long as I lived, and that I could not expect to bear children. In addition, I would have to have a limited diet. I did not want to live such a miserable life.

My elder sister was studying Christian Science, and she suggested that I look into it for healing. At first I thought that imploring God when I was in trouble would also be miserable. A Christian Scientist told me that God is not someone to plead with, but that through understanding God I could see my true self, as it is written in the Bible, made in God's image and likeness (see Gen. 1:26). I was able to accept this as true, and learned to drop the false thought of sickness.
