In 1995, a fall on the way to work left me unable to put any pressure on one foot. I declined medical treatment and was taken to a Christian Science nursing facility for care. For the next four months, I required crutches to walk. Throughout this time, I prayed daily for myself and talked often to a Christian Science practitioner, who provided very helpful treatment in prayer. Eventually, the injury was completely overcome. During the healing process, there were many times of inspiration and uplift, but there are three lessons in particular that stand out to me as being especially significant in this healing.

First was the importance of getting over the thought that I had fallen and was injured. While struggling to get around in my day-to-day activity, I began to believe more and more that the injury was very real and was having a dramatic impact on my life. A very important point for me in this healing was for me to accept the fact that I am already perfect, whole, and unfallen.
