After my sixth child was born, at long intervals I would lose consciousness and when I recovered felt worn out. I had had treatment from three different physicians, an operation and electric treatments, and still was not cured. They all told my husband they could do no more for me than they had already done, and one physician said these spells would become more frequent and that I would eventually lose my mind. After several years I went to a Christian Science practitioner and though I seemed to feel some little benefit I did not continue treatment. I purchased "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, which I enjoyed reading, but failed to put into practice what I understood. We then moved to another city, where I just drifted along, but finally, as my trouble seemed to be increasing, I once more went to a Christian Science practitioner, but did not seem to respond, and again gave it up.

After many years, through a neighbor who was interested in Christian Science, I again asked for help from a practitioner. She gave me an absent treatment and I felt so much better that after that my daughter called on her whenever I was in need. She called several times and I always felt better after her visits. I do not now recall how many treatments were given, but I know that one day I realized that I was cured.
