An overturned verdict: Chronic health issues and incurable disease gone
Before I began learning about Christian Science, I was sick often and went to a doctor or an acupuncturist almost weekly. There seemed to always be something wrong with me physically or emotionally; plus, I felt mentally unstable. My self-worth was low, and I lacked confidence. I was often very depressed and filled with indecisiveness and self-pity; my life spiraled downward.
At one point I was diagnosed with a rare, incurable blood disease. The doctor gave me medicine, saying that it might help, but if it didn’t, I would just have to manage to live with the condition for the rest of my life. I thought to myself, “I will not accept this verdict, and I will find a way out!”
After going to an acupuncturist for a rash I had up and down my body and trying herbs, which didn’t help, I was desperate and exhausted from all of my challenges. My mom had begun studying Christian Science the year before, but I hadn’t been interested at that time. She’d tried to hand me copies of the Sentinel every so often. I wouldn’t accept them. But now I was willing to ask for her help.
