Astigmatism and Other Troubles Healed

Three years ago last June, I commenced to read Christian Science. Previous to this, my health had been poor for many years, and I had given up all hope of ever being well again. Some nine years before, I went through a serious operation. The physicians told me I would he a well woman in a year's time. As the years went by one after another, and I found their words were not true, I become discouraged, and was very unhappy. I longed to die, as I thought this would free me from suffering.

I was in this state of mind when Christian Science was brought to my notice by a dear friend who had just commenced to look into it. I had no idea that I could be helped by reading Science and Health, but as I read, I found there was a great deal in it for me. In three months' time, I laid aside the glasses I had worn for six years. 'A specialist told me I would have to wear them the rest of my life, as I had astigmatism and was far-sighted, and if I attempted to go without them, I would injure my eyes. I have never worn them since the day I first left them off, and have not suffered with headache, neither have I had any trouble with my eyes. I sew, lead, and do lace work by gaslight, and feel no ill effects from it. As I continued to read, one ailment after another left me. Now I can say, I am well; I am not only well but happy.
