Healed of heart problems and flu symptoms

A number of years ago I was an art teacher. Although I enjoyed the work and the children, I was starting to feel pressure to advance my career. So, even though I was not overly enthusiastic, I enrolled in a graduate program in a related field while continuing to teach and be an active member of my Christian Science branch church. 

After a few months, I awoke one night shaking uncontrollably. When the shaking stopped, I called a Christian Science practitioner for help. Although it was 3:00 a.m., the practitioner immediately agreed to pray and even made me laugh when he said he had wanted to get up early anyway to study the Thanksgiving Bible Lesson. (It was the night before Thanksgiving.) 

The next day, I was able to participate in all my normal activities. However, I began periodically experiencing an accelerated heartbeat. This continued off and on for several months, but I stayed with my prayers and sometimes asked a practitioner to pray for me. Although symptoms were not completely gone, I felt progress was being made and that I was growing spiritually.
