(Clearwisdom.net) Since July 20 of 1999 when the CCP launched the persecution against Falun Gong, I have not been able to let go of my attachments to fame, gain and sentimentality. With the attachment of fear, I had given up practicing Dafa. Very quickly I indulged myself in worldly pursuits. In order to fight for "my own position", I even learned how to smoke, drink and bribe. I often went home late.

On the night of Dec 23, 2007, I found small bumps all over my skin. They were red, swollen and extremely itchy. Seven days later, it spread all over to my face and hands. Later my husband forced me to see a doctor. The doctor diagnosed "Overall paroxysmal Psoriasis." Because I was an employee in a pharmacy, I could not face my customers with such appearance. I had to take time off and stay at home. Suffering the extreme pain physically and mentally, I was at the edge of collapse. At that moment, I was fortunate to come across Teacher's lecture video "Fa-Teaching Given to the Australian Falun Dafa Practitioners". I made up my mind to come back to the path of cultivation.

When I decided to restart my cultivation, I felt very sorry I had gone astray from Teacher and Dafa for so many years. Also I had generated so much karma in my pursuits in society. However, I firmly believed that Teacher would help me and that I would be cured.

However, the key of cultivation is improving one's Xinxing (mind nature) and overcoming tribulations. My husband was very annoyed by my appearance. Fearing that he would be contaminated, he drove me out of the bedroom. He also insulted me with humiliating words and forced me to seek medical treatment.

As a practitioner, I knew that medicine was unable to eliminate the karma I generated in other dimensions. In addition, practitioners were watched over by our Teacher. Therefore I insisted on not taking medicine. My husband simply could not understand me. Just when the situation was very difficult, things changed for the better. He suddenly needed to go to another city for work related reason. I then immediately called up practitioners in other regions for help. They agreed to come and visit me. Everything seemed by accident, but they were all under the grace of Teacher.

When these two practitioners came, upon seeing me, they encouraged me with righteous thoughts that this was a good thing. Teacher was purifying my body. How could I cultivate with such a filthy and black body? They also told me that it was the result of my own karma and I needed to overcome the tribulation. However, Teacher suffered more than what we did in order for us to achieve consummation. They stayed with me for four days straight. During this precious time, we continuously studied the Fa and sent forth righteous thought. I felt that my righteous thoughts became stronger and stronger. After they left, my skin started shedding every one or two hours. I had to change my nightgown every day, otherwise it would be filled with my shed skin and I felt as if I would explode.

At night, my skin was even itchier. I was unable to sleep. I then sat up and read Teacher's books. When I read the Fa, my symptoms were relieved a lot. I believed that Teacher was watching over me. I thought of the words of a fellow practitioner. She said that I needed to undergo this hardship for a very short period of time to make up for lost time, and that bearing hardship is a good thing. If there is no pain, there is no gain.

On the morning of Jan 16, 2008, my husband called me and said that he would arrive home that afternoon. Before he came home, I planned to live with fellow practitioner for a little while and would come back when I recovered. I discussed with my other family members and left. At that time, I was shedding skin even when I was walking. However, fellow practitioners did not complain. On contrary, they encouraged me to take this opportunity to study the Fa.

When my husband could not find me at home, he asked my other family members and found out my decision. He called me and angrily forced me to go home on a certain date or he would divorce me. I was not moved. I calmly told him that I would go home once I recovered so that he did not need to worry about me once he saw my situation. Later he begged me to go home and promised that he would agree to whatever I want to do. I still calmly told him that I would go home as soon as I recovered. I would give him a pleasant surprise. This time he did not say anything, but he made other relatives pressure me to go home and seek medical treatment and give up practicing Falun Gong. Seeing that I was not moved, some relatives said that I was too stubborn. I was truly enduring "hundred kinds of hardship all come at once".

Local fellow practitioners helped me to send forth righteous thought and encouraged me to take it as a good thing. I also thought of what Teacher hinted to me three times through my dream. One time when I was almost unable to sustain the pain, I knelt down in front of Teacher's portrait and asked for help. In my dream, I saw Teacher also had the same skin condition in his neck as mine. When I woke up, I felt so shameful because I knew that Teacher was suffering for me.

Another time when I asked for Teacher's help, I dreamed that Teacher shined light on me three times. My whole body was surrounded by light. All of my discomfort such as pain and itchiness all disappeared. Since then, I have been able to endure. Every day I studied the Fa, practiced the exercises, and shared experiences with fellow practitioners. I was illuminated by the light of Fa and felt so happy.

As of Feb 2, 2008, all the scabs on my face and scalp have fallen off. My face is smooth and rosy. I finally can clarify truth and validate Dafa to sentient beings with my own experience. My husband and other family members had suffered skin diseases before. Although they tried all kinds of medicine, they were not completely cured. However, I was thoroughly cured within one month without taking any drugs. This validates the magnificence of Dafa.
