I had been ailing for almost six years

I had been ailing for almost six years. Many doctors, of various schools, were faithfully tried. All were most kind to me and did the best they could to help; but not one of them seemed able to diagnose my trouble. I suffered constantly from severe backache, neuritis in my hands, sleeplessness, and an almost constant burning sensation in my sides and back, so that I could not bear my clothes to touch my skin. This condition was said to be caused by too much acid in the blood and poor circulation. A surgical operation was advised and submitted to. Adhesions were found, and two organs, which had become cystic, were removed. This experience left me in a worse condition than before. Inflammation of the bladder set in and caused me unfold suffering. Two days after I left the hospital, pneumonia and gastritis attacked me, and I was in a very bad state.

Shortly after this I was asked why I did not try Christian Science, but as I had heard only what was untrue about it, I would have nothing to do with it, believing that if the doctors could not heal me, how could Christian Science? So I continued to suffer. Rheumatism was now added, also a severe pain in the back of my neck. On account of rheumatism I was ordered to leave San Francisco and seek a warmer climate, so we moved; and after some time I was told that nothing more could be done for me, although another operation might help.
