(Minghui.org) I am a 20-year-old, healthy young woman. People would find it difficult to believe that I was almost completely paralyzed ten years ago. My spine was deformed, and I was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis. The doctor said that nothing could be done.
Just as I was on the edge of despair, my mom told me that only Falun Dafa could save me and suggested that I try it.
My condition gradually disappeared after I took up the practice.
Ten years ago, when I was in secondary school, the sports teacher instructed us to run 800 meters. My shoulders were in serious pain after running, and I asked the teacher if it was alright not to run anymore. She replied, “Only if you have a doctor's certificate.”
My mom worried about my health and took me to a hospital. To our surprise, I was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis. My parents wanted a second opinion and took me to a specialist, but the results were the same.
The doctor said that I was the first case in China who presented multi-congenital diseases and that I needed to be operated on immediately. If not, my spine would become deformed and it would either leave me paralyzed or I could even lose my life.
This specialist invited another well-known doctor who was studying overseas to discuss my case. This doctor took my medical records and discussed my case at a seminar in Beijing.
An operation was scheduled for me by two top surgeons, and the best anesthetist was invited to join them. However, the operation was canceled the day before the scheduled surgery, because a patient died during an operation.
My parents wanted them to carry on, but the doctor didn't want to take the risk.
I was brought up by my grandmother who practices Falun Dafa. My mom and aunt saw the great changes in my grandmother after practicing and later joined her. I was a little girl back then and enjoyed playing, so I didn't take up the practice.
I always had tears in my eyes when I was in the hospital. I saw other patients suffering and thought that that would soon be me. The doctor's words echoed repeatedly in my ears, “It could end your life.”
One day my mom held my hands and said that only Dafa could save me. I knew that it was time for me to start practicing.
I now do things according to Falun Dafa's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and consider others first when dealing with all things. I always try to look inward when conflicts occur and always think about others before myself.
Soon after I began practicing, the pain disappeared and my spine didn't become deformed as predicted. In fact, it gradually recovered.
It would be hard to believe if I hadn't experienced it myself. It is a miracle.
