Healed of lifelong eczema

Upon meeting my husband, whose parents were students of Christian Science, I gradually began learning about Christian Science, including reading testimonies of healing. But I still felt a long way from dealing with eczema, which I’d suffered from since infancy and had been treating medically. 

When I was a mum with three young children, I reached a point of severity with the skin condition. A doctor explained that other bodily organs would also be experiencing irritation, and she admitted me to the hospital to try to bring the condition under control. There was never the expectation that medicine could cure the condition; I was told that it could only help bring some relief. When I was discharged from the hospital, I was given more creams and a strong drug to be taken daily. I felt very uncomfortable most of the time and was exhausted and hopeless. 

Then one day about ten years after I first encountered Christian Science, I returned home after taking the children to school and playgroup. I had two hours before I needed to pick my son up at playgroup, and I went to my bedroom and dropped to my knees in prayer. I was in a state of complete humility. I turned to God and asked Him to show me what I needed to do. I felt led to open Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy and read it from the beginning, something I had never done before.
