Healed of Painful Migraine
A. M. in Missouri
Since childhood, I have experienced migraine headaches. I have spent a lot of time over the years in fear of these headaches, because it seemed I had no control over them and was frequently concerned one would develop when I had something important to do. Well-meaning family and friends made many suggestions for treatments they had heard about, and before coming to this church, I had tried different prescription medications, but despite these medications and a try at “alternative treatment,” nothiang really helped, and sometimes they made things worse. Thus, I just adapted to having them.
I had been dealing with these headaches for so long, that while it seems obvious now, it took a practitioner in this church to wake me up to the fact that these headaches should not be continuing. They had no law, no truth, — absolutely nothing behind them to support their existence, and I needed to stop accepting them as part of my life. I’m grateful to say that these headaches have lessened, both in frequency and severity, in proportion as my fear of them has lessened, due to working with the truths that my practitioner has given to me.
Recently, I had the passing thought that it had been such a long time since I had a headache, and another family member had made a similar comment as well. Interestingly enough, very shortly thereafter, I was awakened in the middle of the night with symptoms of a very painful migraine headache. I felt that I needed help and reached out to my practitioner. As she always does, she responded she was up and praying for me; and more importantly, she reminded me that there was no law of relapse. She clearly affirmed that the progress I had made could not be undone, there could be no return of old beliefs, prior fear — essentially, no return of this nonsense! I could actually feel a strong sense of peace, and the thought came that I should rest in the truth of what this dear practitioner had stated, and that when I got up, I would be able to do all I needed to do. I did rest, and, as was promised, these symptoms began to lift. By the time I had to get up, all symptoms had left!
I have tremendous gratitude for this church and our dedicated practitioners, and, of course, to the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, for enlightening the world and leaving us with this Science.
