Back pain gone
Many years ago I injured my back lifting a heavy object into a truck bed. The pain was intense, but over a few days gradually receded. However, for some time after the incident, the pain would return after I performed certain lifting or bending tasks. I was in the construction business at the time, and sometimes I would find it hard to get in and out of my truck, move my body in a twisting motion, or even just walk normally.
One morning after feeling this discomfort in my back, I awoke and could barely move. I had experienced intense pain a number of times, but this was the first time I could barely move. The pain was so severe that I literally considered suicide. “Why go on living,” I thought, “when this pain is so intense, and I can’t even get out of bed?” As a student of Christian Science, I had experienced many healings through prayer. Nothing, however, had seemed this serious. But I knew that I could not give in to this thought and that I needed prayerful help.
