Some years ago I had a very serious attack of illness, which kept me indoors for many months, spending most of the time in bed. I never really recovered from that illness. The trouble still lingered with me, and I could never go out in damp weather without bad results. This was a great trial to me, as I naturally wanted to be strong like other people. A little more than two years ago I went from home on a visit, and when I returned I found two of my sisters, who had been delicate, wonderfully improved. I was very much surprised at the change in them, and was eager to know what had brought it about. They then told me they had been studying Christian Science, and explained what it is I had never heard of it before, and wanted to read about it at once, because I had seen the good fruits. One of my sisters gave me a copy of The Christian Science Journal to read. While I read the articles a sweet peace came to me, and my fear of the disease left me. That same night I was healed, my sister helping me to realize the truth, and every day after that I gained in strength. The more I studied Christian Science the stronger I became. I did not use any other remedy than the truth revealed in Christian Science, and indeed I found that it was and is the only true and lasting one. Soon after that I was healed of a skin disease, also of biliousness. These were overcome simply by studying Science and Health. Another time I was able to overcome, through Christian Science, a bad condition of my throat. I now enjoy very good health, which I owe wholly to Christian Science. I am very grateful for the beautiful way in which I was guided into the truth, and for the practical help it is to me every day. I am glad I have also been able to help others to overcome, and am proving that "the great Physician now is here"
