From early childhood I was considered delicate, and as I grew into young womanhood I became a periodical sufferer. As time went on the suffering became acute, undermining my general health. Kind physicans made every effort to relieve me, until, finally, after several years of intense misery and with added complications, I consented to an operation, ten physicians having tried in different ways to help me.

I had reached a place where it seemed I could not endure further. Several months later a spinal trouble which had resulted from the operation made my life one of almost constant suffering. I could neither sit nor stand without suffering, and was finally advised that I should have to submit to another operation on a vertebra. The inconsistency of this proposal impressed me, and I realized that all my confidence in medicine and surgery was gone.

At this time I was attending a Christian Science church, with no hope of being healed but with a desire to know something of God and to try to understand how a God who we were told is Love, could inflict such suffering upon me when I had always tried to be good. I did learn something about God, and became so absorbed in the beautiful concept of Him which Mrs. Eddy has given the world that I forgot the hurt, and the spinal trouble fell away like an old garment. This healing took place while attending the services.
