COVID symptoms overcome

One night last fall I felt extremely ill, and soon realized I had many of the symptoms associated with COVID-19. But because I’ve learned in Christian Science how to pray and to understand myself as the reflection of God, good, I knew I didn’t have to be afraid. The symptoms were not true about my identity as God’s spiritual child. 

While the illness was the most obvious challenge I was facing, there was more going on in my life that needed healing. My childhood dog, who had been part of our family for 18 years, had just passed away. Then a couple of weeks later, my grandma unexpectedly passed away. I had also been struggling with feelings of depression, and sometimes had dark thoughts. Although I had been praying about these situations, the COVID symptoms made me feel as though I had hit rock bottom, bringing back many of the dark feelings, such as grief and despair.
