Pain and sadness—out of her life

I had a strange growth on my thumb for years. Sometimes it would flair up and be very painful. Because it was so ugly, I often felt embarrassed when others noticed it. Usually, though, I would end up ignoring it until it hurt, and then I would pray about it. When I prayed, it would stop hurting. But it wasn't healed.

One day I felt strongly that having this problem go on and on wasn't normal or necessary. I think something had been gently working in my thought during all those years—and I'd finally arrived at the feeling that it was time for permanent healing. I knew from experience that when a condition is healed through prayer in Christian Science, the very root of the problem is solved, and it's completely out of your life. That's what I wanted to happen in this case. I had tried to heal this through my own prayer, but I felt I needed professional help. So I called a Christian Science practitioner.
