(Minghui.org) There was a time when I thought I would give up on life.

It happened when I was 48 years old, when I was working the field as I usually did – being a farmer's wife – and my four limbs suddenly gave out on me. My husband rushed me to the hospital, where he found out that I had had a stroke and needed surgery to recover.

He went everywhere to borrow money. After paying the hospital 20,000 yuan, I was finally able to get the operation for the bleeding in my brain. However, I did not wake up right after the operation; I remained in a coma for 24 days.

When I came to, I could neither talk nor move. In this pitiable state, the neurosurgeon told my family that I was ready to be discharged.

From that point on, I was bedridden. My husband had to do everything for me, as I had no way of communicating with anyone. During farming season, he had to work the fields and take care of me while I felt increasingly helpless – hopeless. When would this all end? I could do nothing but cry.

One day, my husband came back with a Falun Dafa booklet. He asked me to read it. Since I had nothing better to do, I did.

I read many stories of people who were blessed for believing in the goodness of Falun Dafa, and I genuinely enjoyed them. From that point on, my husband brought me Falun Dafa fliers and booklets, and I kept reading them.

I also began attempting to recite the phrases like the people in the stories – “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

Gradually, my speech began to improve, first to the point that other people could understand me, and finally to the point where I was talking like I did before the stroke. One day, I even found out I was able to get up and slowly walk to the bathroom by myself!

My husband was delighted to see my improvements; the worry and anxiety that had plagued him began to ease up. He often reminded me to recite the magic words – even though I'd tell him I was already reciting them then.

My health improved day by day, and I was overjoyed. I want to tell everyone that though it might sound crazy, all the stories in these Falun Dafa fliers are true! And I have my personal experience to prove it!

My husband also said that we should all learn from Falun Dafa practitioners, as they are good people who should not be persecuted. We both withdrew from the Young Pioneers that we once joined.

I sincerely want to thank Master Li! I have been paralyzed and bedridden for 8 years until I began reading Falun Dafa stories and reciting the phrases. Falun Dafa has given me hope and restored my health!

Falun Dafa is great! I hope more people believe in it, and benefit from it!
