For nearly ten years before knowing of Christian Science...

For nearly ten years before knowing of Christian Science I suffered very severely from lung trouble (phthisis) and was attended by three doctors, but got no relief, the last doctor saying I would live only about three months. I spent many weary weeks in bed. Sometimes I was able to be up for a few weeks, and then I would have to go to bed again, worse than before. I grew so weak that I could not retain any solid food, and felt myself a burden to my parents and those around me.

I often used to lie and read the Bible, especially the passages which told of the healings by Christ Jesus; but I began to doubt if there was a God at all, as I had prayed so many times to be well and useful. Then I was told of Christian Science. I borrowed the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and began to study earnestly. I also had help from a Christian Science practitioner at times. Gradually I gained a better understanding of God, and also learned how to pray; and in less than three months I was completely healed of this disease, so that, instead of being a burden, I was able to go out and earn wages for myself.
