Headache and sickness gone

Last summer I was in the middle of a music and arts camp program when my head started to ache and I felt sick. After the program, my family and friends who had come to watch hugged and congratulated me for my performance, and my head felt better. But later at home, it started aching really bad. It was dinner time by then. I told my mom, and she said to go lie down in my room and that she would be up in a while to check on me.

I went up to my room and lay down on my bed. In a few minutes my mom came up to my room to pray with me. I remember that we talked about what Christian Science treatment is. This treatment starts with God and His goodness, denies any reality to the problem, affirms only what is true and real, and praises and thanks God for His always present goodness. We each shared a Christian Science prayer treatment for me out loud.  

Then my mom went to get a book called Mary Baker Eddy: Christian Healer (Yvonne Caché von Fettweis and Robert Townsend Warneck). We read a lot of it together. One story was about a woman who imagined that a monster was crushing her when that wasn't happening at all (pp. 154–155). My mom said a headache was only as real as a make-believe monster because God did not make it.
