In October, 1889, after being under medical treatment for ten years, I turned to Christian Science for help. During this time I had spent sixteen months at a sanitarium, and most of the time there I was in bed. The physicians had been trying to heal neurasthenia and anemia with drugs, massage, health foods, rest, and fresh air, and I had cooperated with them in every possible way. My thought had therefore become so saturated with physiology and hygiene that the one who afterwards became my teacher in Science said she had never in all her experience encountered a similar condition, or one that equalled it. For these ten years I had walked very little. I had to lie down about five hours every day, and rest before and after every exertion I made.
The sense of fatigue and weakness disappeared instantly one day with the dawning of a clear thought of God as man's true Life and strength, and I have not since lain down half a dozen times during the day. This healing thought came to me after three weeks of treatment, and the lessons in a Christian Science class taught by one of our Leader's students. Other ailments have disappeared, some sooner, some later, and some have not yet gone, but I am strong, active, and well. The experiences I have had in Science during these fourteen years have made me absolutely sure that my whole condition was mental, and I find as the sense of fear, the belief in material life and human personality, is being overcome, and as thought is spiritualized, improvement and healing are inevitable.
By obedience and trust I mean to show my gratitude to our father-Mother God, to the great Wayshower, to our Leader, to her students who treated and taught me, and to all who by example or precept have helped to effect this radical change by reflecting Truth and Love. I cannot express how much help the Sentinel and Journal have brought me.—E. B. Milwaukee, Wis.
