(Minghui.org) It was the most extreme pain that I experienced in my whole life, and I couldn't get medical help in the detention center. However, by trusting Master, the pain was completely gone within a few hours.

Deplorable Living Conditions in the Detention Center Led to Health Crisis

I was being held in a detention center because I refused to give up practicing Falun Gong. The detention center was dark, cold, and humid. I was only allowed two meals per day, although we had to do forced labor that involved lifting heavy metal parts.

The poor living conditions, plus not being allowed to practice Falun Dafa, caused my health to quickly deteriorate. My hair turned gray and my teeth loosened. My skin dried out and started to slough off. I had frequent back and leg pain.

One day, I suddenly had acute pain in the right side of my abdomen. The head of the cell, who was a traditional Chinese medicine doctor, checked me over and concluded that I had a kidney stone. The detention center's in-house doctor agreed and gave me some medicine.

Looking at the medicine, I hesitated. I had not taken any medicine for 19 years, because I had been keeping myself healthy with the practice of Falun Dafa. However, in the detention center, I was no longer allowed to practice Dafa, so I took it.

The medicine made me feel extremely chilly. Half an hour later, I vomited all the food that I'd eaten at lunch--and the medicine.

I was in so much pain throughout the rest of the day that I did not have any dinner. At bedtime, the cell head was concerned that I might not survive the night, so he called for the doctor. The doctor replied that the detention center hospital did not operate at night, and they would treat me the next day if I was still alive.

My cellmates were outraged. The cell head tried to help me with traditional Chinese medicine techniques, but it caused more pain. I tried to use a bottle filled with hot water as a heating pad against my abdomen, but the pain did not subside.

On the verge of death, I hesitated to ask Master for help. I have heard many practitioners say they asked Master for help when going through hardships. I knew that the pain was my karma and I did not want Master to suffer it for me, but I did not want to die in the detention center. Finally, I called out to Master in my heart, “I am sorry, Master. Please help me get through this!”

Within five minutes, I fell asleep. When I woke up at 2 a.m., there was little pain left. I knew that Master bore the karma for me.

The next morning, I told others about my miraculous experience of asking Master for help. Everyone was amazed. The cell head checked me again and again. The kidney stone was gone. The cell head started to practice Falun Dafa from then on.
