(Clearwisdom.net) I am a sixty-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner from Yilan County in Taiwan, and I work as a hairdresser. When I was young, I had an unlucky marriage, and later I had a lot of health problems from which I suffered mentally and physically.
As a single mother I had financial difficulty. On top of that, I had to depend on medicine just to survive because of all my physical problems. I had to sit down while washing customers' hair as I was unable to stand for a long period of time. My physical condition deteriorated daily because of my workload and feeling unhappy. At the time, I'd had blood in my urine for the previous 15 years, cancer in my womb, constant headaches, arthritis in my knee, osteoporosis, nerve pain and tonsillitis. What else didn't I have? I got injections every other day. If I didn't take medicine, I would get a high fever. What a terrible life I had.
One day, before I learned about Dafa, I went on an outing with my elder sister. While we were together, I walked very slowly and fell far behind, so she asked me why. I said, "My lower abdomen is dropping down and that makes it difficult to walk." She was a Dafa practitioner and she told me, "Falun Gong can purify your body. Why don't you try it?"
After considering my sister's suggestion for a whole day, I finally decided to take her advice and began practicing Falun Gong on August 2, 2001. That was the most important day of my life. It turned my fate around.
Practicing Falun Gong requires reading a book, but I didn't know many Chinese characters, so it was quite difficult for me. What was I to do? To overcome the problem, I learned how to write. For those characters that I wasn't familiar with, I wrote down the phonetic notations so that I could look them up in the dictionary later when I had time. I called my sister frequently for help and she continuously encouraged me.
I worked hard at it, and within a month I had learned five hundred characters. Within two months I had read Zhuan Falun three times. It was really a miracle for a person like me, as I was already 53 years old at that time. Now, besides going to work each day, I do serious Fa study. Sometimes I can read as much as half a book in one day.
Later on, I set up a practice site around the Lake Longtan area. Because my celestial eye was open, I felt that I could see Teacher waiting for me there every day. However, if I should be late, Teacher would disappear. In addition to going to work, I focused on Fa study and practicing the exercises. After my xinxing improved, my body seemed like it had been completely overhauled.
After I had been practicing Falun Gong for two months, I lost about ten pounds. Four months after that, the blood in my urine, that had troubled me for fifteen years, disappeared. The sickness that I had carried for 27 years after giving birth was gone. I no longer had migraine headaches, and I also stopped taking steroid injections. After practicing Falun Gong for twenty months, the tumor in my womb fell out by itself. I remember, it was June 16, 2003, and I didn't feel any discomfort or have any bleeding.
Six years ago, I borrowed a piece of land from my neighbor to plant some vegetables. I was so excited when I lifted up the plow. For a long time, I had been unable to lift anything heavy. Now I could do it without any problem. Over the last few years, I've become a different person. My skin is glowing and rosy and I have less gray hair. I can walk fast and my steps feel light. When I go to talk to people about the Fa, friends who knew me before all say that I look entirely different. Previously, my lips looked dark and my face was puffy. Now I have rosy cheeks and I look healthy. I told them that what happened to me was that I started practicing Falun Gong.
