On page 420 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

On page 420 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy is found this advice: "If students do not readily heal themselves, they should early call an experienced Christian Scientist to aid them." This was a great help to me at one time. While on my way to the depot to take the train to a neighboring town, where I was teaching painting, I slipped on a wet sidewalk, spraining my ankle. It did not hurt much, so I went to my class as usual, but during the afternoon it swelled and gave me considerable pain. By the time the class closed I could not step on that foot. I had no opportunity to help myself much until I reached home again about eight o'clock in the evening. Then I took Science and Health and read a while and treated myself to the best of my understanding. In the morning the foot was black and blue, but there was no pain, and I could walk with ease, providing I did not spring onto my toes; I had to walk rather flat-footed.

For two months I tried to overcome this condition but made no headway. I felt rather ashamed to ask for help, having done so well at first, and then grew a determination to make the healing complete, which I now know was self-will. Then one day while reading Science and Health I came across the reference quoted. I immediately wrote to a friend in a distant city who was a practitioner, asking for treatment, and within three days the healing was complete. I was grateful for the physical freedom, but much more so for the mental healing which took place.
