It is with a great sense of gratitude that I add my testimony of mental and physical healing to that of so many others who have been healed through the truth as revealed by Christian Science. My healing has been slow and has come about through the overcoming of self in a measure. A critical physical condition was preceded by months of mental anguish and extreme nervousness, following overwork, war strain, and adversity, and was accompanied by despondency. I was struck down, my body becoming distorted and my side crippled with what at first was believed to be rheumatism. Later, it was claimed that a series of mental shocks had affected the nerves of my back. This was accompanied by internal disorders, acute kidney trouble, and a slight stroke. For several months I was confined to my bed helpless, and for several more months to a chair. It seemed, if I ever walked again, that I would be hopelessly lame.

I never ceased to cling to Christian Science during this testing time. I was fortunate in being placed finally in a dear Science home, where I had opportunity to read and study many hours a day, and to rest. Excruciating pain, which is ordinarily relieved by constant hypodermics, responded slowly to the truth. Gradually, with the help of a loving and patient practitioner, I was able to walk—at first a block, by resting constantly; but I was still quite lame, my left limb having contracted until it was at least four inches shorter than the right.
