Healed of depression

Originally published in El Heraldo de la Christian Science

For eight years I suffered from depression. I was attending a Christian Science Sunday School, but for a time I resisted turning to Christian Science for healing. My mother, on the other hand, held on to the understanding that nothing is impossible to God, and that I could be healed.

Time went by, and as I saw that I wasn't getting better, I began to plead with God in my prayers, feeling that I could "of mine own self do nothing" (John 5:30). When the fear of dying would come over me, I asked God to help me. These were very difficult moments. But I remained calm, and little by little a healing took place and, along with it, a moral regeneration. I realized that the Omnipotent doesn't need help from human methods to heal. When I understood this, I gained the assurance that I was not separated from God. A Christian Science practitioner prayed for me, and I was able to stop taking the drugs the psychiatrist had prescribed.
