One of the issues that comes regularly among my (former) Christian Science friends is our complete ignorance about all things “health care” related. All most of us know about doctors, medicine, vaccinations, and prescription and non-prescription medication is that we didn’t partake of them when we were younger/still “good” Christian Scientists. I was raised with the very unhelpful notion that “doctors are looking for a problem” and they “only want to use you as a pin-cushion.”

I’m still working on overcoming those fears, and am gradually learning to accept doctors in my life as resources and allies, instead of adversaries. I’m not going to the doctor for them to find something wrong, I’m going because something is wrong and I need help to get better. With this in mind I’ve started a series of posts about Health Care for Christian Scientists and Former Christian Scientists. They have all been tagged Christian Science Health Care, and I hope to compile a helpful list of resources as well. I welcome input, recommendations, and suggestions.
