Testimonies of Healing


From the October 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Christian Science from friends some 18 years ago. For years, we often talked about Christian Science. Although I did occasionally sift through Science and Health and some of the Christian Science weekly Bible Lessons, I think the biggest effect all this had on me was that the respect I had for my friends created an openness to Christian Science.

Then about a year and a half ago I was feeling very lost and once again relapsed into depression. I had been diagnosed with clinical depression 14 years earlier by a psychiatrist who informed me that this disease was degenerative, incurable, and often resulted in suicidal tendencies as one grew older. I spent many of those 14 years in therapy and on antidepressant medications. And I experienced relapses whenever I stopped taking the medications—just as the doctor said I would.
