(Minghui.org) I was born in a poor farmer’s home in the 1950s during the Great Famine. Despite my congenital heart disease, my family couldn’t afford medical treatment for me. I was very weak and sickly throughout my childhood. I once caught a cold, and the accompanying cough persisted for a year. Thereafter, I suffered from asthma and bronchitis.

I was bullied in school because I walked slowly with a hunched back, constantly coughed, and had shortness of breath. I began working following graduation from technical secondary school. I got married right after that.

Life dealt me another heavy blow right after my wedding. My husband was from the city and he worked in a factory. Before we married, he told me he only had a mother at home, but I found out, he also had two disabled brothers. It was a poverty struck home.

My mother-in-law had many illnesses and required a lot of care. She was selfish, arrogant, and looked down upon farmers. She demanded that I hand over my salary to her. I disagreed. She was upset and made things difficult for me in every possible way.

My husband had a short temper. He also found fault with almost everything I did, such as I used too much water, I washed clothes too often, or I was wasteful, etc. After having our first child, he disregarded my poor health and insisted that we have a second child.

My workplace demoted me and lowered my salary due to my pregnancy. With this much stress in my life, my health worsened. I often passed out at work, and I was later diagnosed with a liver problem. I tried various medical treatments, but to no avail. I lost a significant amount of weight and experienced considerable hair loss.

An old friend visited me in the summer of 1997 and introduced me to Falun Dafa. After I read Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, I realized it was a book of self cultivation. It talked about the meaning of life and why people had tribulations, illnesses, and difficulties. The questions I had about life were answered one by one. It turned out that suffering was a good thing – through suffering, I’m paying off my debts, and only after paying off the debts could I go to a better place. I made up my mind to cultivate Falun Dafa.

I began studying the Fa and practicing the five Falun Dafa exercises. My xinxing gradually improved. My cough stopped, and I no longer had shortness of breath. My body felt lighter. My mood also improved. I worked diligently at home and at my company. Within a year, all my illnesses were gone!

I was recognized and awarded at work for my performance. I knew it was the founder of Falun Dafa, Master Li Hongzhi, who eliminated my karma and granted me a new life.

My family witnessed my enormous changes and are also deeply grateful for Master Li. They all encourage me to cultivate well in Falun Dafa.
