Thirty-five years ago I became very ill

Thirty-five years ago I became very ill. Our doctor was summoned and pronounced me a very sick woman. I was in bed for twenty-three days from hemorrhage, and it was thought that I was on my deathbed. Finally the doctor said that he could do nothing for me; that an operation might help me, but that if I recovered sufficiently to get up I would be an invalid. I refused to have an operation, and my husband and the physician asked me what I was going to do.

I knew very little about Christian Science, but I thought that it was of God. I said, "I am going to have Christian Science;" and the doctor replied, "Let her have it, if she wants it." I surprised my family by appearing downstairs in the living room that night. I could not walk, but sat on the floor and moved along. I said to my family, "I heard the doctor tell you that I would be an invalid, but I refuse to be one; I am going to get well." I was returned to bed as one in a dying condition. The next morning I said: "I want to be taken downstairs by the fireside. I want the Bible and Science and Health; and I am going to get well." For twelve days I studied and worked, watched and prayed. God, Truth, was my only helper.
