In October, 1900, I was attacked with nervous prostration
In October, 1900, I was attacked with nervous prostration. I also suffered from chronic constipation and indigestion. A physician who was called said that I would have to keep very quiet, take the medicine prescribed, and then I need not hope to be well speedily. I obeyed his directions as nearly as possible, but I grew steadily worse Sleeplessness, which from the first had troubled me, became almost unbearable. The mental agony at this time was dreadful, and I felt that I could not trust myself, lest I should do something desperate.
The physician changed the medicine several times, but no relief came. After three months' treatment from this physician another was called, and they consulted about the case. They said they could find no physical cause for the nervous disturbance, consequently they did not know what to do. They gave me some sleeping-powder and went away. In the mean time a friend had written asking me to try Christian Science, and I decided that if everything else failed I would try it. When I felt that I need not look to drugs for a cure, I went to Christian Science. The first treatment was a revelation to me; I knew that I had found what would heal me. Previous to this I was unable to sleep more than an hour during the night; after the first treatment I was able to sleep longer and far more peacefully. The constipation and stomach trouble gave way at once, but the nervousness was slower to yield. At first the mental turmoil was so great that I could not read, but after the first treatment I could read a little and after a few days I spent all my time in reading the Christian Science literature. I had two weeks' treatment, and I studied the Bible and Science and Health diligently. I am now free from any physical ailment. I have not taken any medicine since being healed four years ago.
