In reading the article entitled Christian Science: Its Compassionate Appeal," in the April, 1905, Journal, I was forcibly reminded of an experience of fifteen years ago.
I had long been a hopeless sufferer. In looking back over weeks, months, and years of suffering I could not see that I was getting better, but rather getting worse. One day, when all seemed dark and the future held out no promise of relief, this thought came to me with startling force: "If this is not hell, what is?" I had always supposed hell to be a place beyond the grave, and it had been my thought to live so as to escape it, but I now began to realize I was in it. Soon after this I was examined by a prominent surgeon and was promised relief by undergoing two surgical operations. I was declared to be the victim of organic diseases and nervous prostration. I had submitted to one operation two years before this, at which time the same hope had been held out, but I never could see that it had given me any help; so we were very undecided, not knowing what to do.
While waiting. Christian Science was presented to me in such a way that I discarded all medicine and surgery, and decided to take treatment at once. In less than three weeks I purchased a copy of Science and Health. It opened up a new life to me and I never could express in words the joy and hope it brought into my home. I was soon able to make little demonstrations for myself and children. Slowly I came into an understanding of this great truth, and it was while treating a friend that I was able to rise above error sufficiently to sit up all day and take up my work where I had left off years before. I have passed through deep waters and over hard places, but Truth has ever upheld and sustained me.
