Some years ago I experienced a mental and physical breakdown. From early childhood I had always been remarkably unafraid, and when I suddently found myself, after some strenuous experiences, afraid of everyone and everything, in a dazed mental condition and unable to work, I was dumb with grief and terror-stricken over my condition. I had been living several days' journey from my people, and upon my arrival home the fear had become so great that practically every organ in the body either ceased to function at all or else did not function properly, and a collapse followed.

A brave, loving Christian Science practitioner responded to my call for help, and in the months which followed we witnessed many times the truth of Mrs. Eddy's statement on page 412 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "The power of Christian Science and divine Love is omnipotent. It is indeed adequate to unclasp the hold and to destroy disease, sin, and death." I was also learning that mesmerism, hypnotism, mental suggestion, domination, and so forth, when persistently and consistently opposed with right mental argument, are powerless to paralyze good or separate us from the love of God. After some days and nights when it seemed that I was in "the valley of the shadow," and at times scarcely conscious, an unconditional surrender of human will and self came; and healing began from that time. Then for days there followed the battle to claim normalcy and the ever present power of good. Though physical symptoms of various diseases came and went, I suffered no pain whatever.
