It would be impossible for me to express in words all that the study of Christian Science has been to me, not so much in a physical as in a mental way, for when it came to me it was truly a case where "man's extremity is God's opportunity." I was taking care of a sister who had been hovering between life and death for two months, and the strain was more than I could bear. I would occasionally break down in hysterical spells of crying, and it seemed as though I could not stop. Had it not been for my sister's two children, of whom I had the sole care, I do not know what I might have done. There were times when it seemed I must run away from it all; that I could stand it no longer. Just then Science and Health was given to me, and I made up my mind that I would read it with an unprejudiced thought, and if there were anything in it that would help me in my extremity, I would find it. From the time I read the first few pages it seemed to come to me that this was just what I had been looking for all my life, and I never questioned its being the truth, although I could scarcely understand a word of it. I had such a peaceful, uplifted feeling, my troubles seemed to vanish into their native nothingness, and I had a sense that I was free.
My brother-in-law being in the drug business we were well supplied with drugs, and I had my room filled with them. I immediately gathered them all together and took them out to a room where my sister kept hers, and said to myself. I shall never need one of these again. That was a little over two years ago, and, while I have had many trials to meet in a physical way, I have never been tempted to return to the use of drugs. I had not had much faith in them for several years, but in my extremity, not knowing where else to look for relief, I still clung to them. I can scarcely remember the time when some member of our family was not under the care of a physician, and we have paid out hundreds of dollars for medicine.
