Eight years ago I was very ill

Eight years ago I was very ill. A physician was consulted, who pronounced the case catarrh, together with the worst form of exhaustion of the heart, stomach, and bowels he had ever known. For a year previous to this my heart had given me serious trouble, and one doctor told me that the present condition was largely due to the medicine taken at that time. I continued to grow worse, until a physician told my husband that probably the outcome would be death or insanity, and that he feared the latter. After a time I seemed to grow a little better of the mental trouble, but the stomach and bowels grew worse, until I could eat no food without extreme suffering and there was no action in the bowels.

At this time I heard of Christian Science through the healing of what was called an incurable disease. This brought me great hope, and later I consulted a Christian Science practitioner. The inaction of the bowels was almost immediately overcome, the other conditions yielding more slowly.

The mental trouble is a thing of the past, and I am thankful to be able to call myself a strong, well woman. I can now eat anything I want any time. It was in the spring of 1900 that I first went to Christian Science for help, and I can truly say I have lived more since then than in all the former years. My gratitude to God, and to the Discoverer of Christian Science, is unbounded.
