For more than three years before I heard of Christian Science,...

For more than three years before I heard of Christian Science, I was constantly suffering from what the doctors called chronic appendicitis, together with stomach and bowel trouble in a very severe form; and as long as I can remember I had suffered from nervous headaches, which grew more unbearable as time went on. To express it in few words, I was sick all over. Through these things, together with the belief in failure and limitation on every side, I had grown to be very irritable and pessimistic. I had even lost my faith in God.

At the time when I was to undergo a surgical operation, I met one of my neighbors, who told me about her healing in Christian Science; but having a very slight understanding of the English language, I did not know exactly what she meant. The next morning I seemed to be overcome with one of the sick spells which used to keep me in bed for days. I then told my husband that I wished to try Christian Science; and he, not knowing what it was, reluctantly went to call a Christian Science practitioner, instead of the doctor. She came, and after the treatment I arose and did all my housework that day, without any pain or inconvenience whatsoever. I continued the treatments for two months, and one discordant condition after another left me.
