On page 366 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

On page 366 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy says, "If we would open their prison doors for the sick, we must first learn to bind up the brokenhearted." I came to Christian Science broken-hearted, weary, and heavy-laden, to material sense a nervous wreck. The prison doors have been opened and I know I can claim my liberty as the child of God, good.

One of my first healings was that of nervous breakdown caused by overwork and worry. Through the help of a practitioner I was lifted out of this physical condition and was placed in a new, happy, and harmonious environment. I learned, as we are told in Isaiah, that God gives us "the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness." I was able to prove the truth of this promise during the experience of nervous trouble. After other conditions had been healed I still had such a sense of heaviness and weariness that it seemed I could never be free. One day while pondering over this condition and wondering if I should ever be healed of weariness, I suddenly realized that dozens of times during the day I was repeating either silently or audibly that I was very tired. I began at once to reverse my thinking, and when the suggestion came that I was tired, I replaced it with the statement that I was very grateful for Christian Science. In a few days all sense of weariness left me; and in the years that have followed there has never been a return of this condition. I am stronger and able to do more work than ever before in my life.

Christian Science has helped me in every way. All the health, happiness, and peace that I have ever experienced has come to me through the study and application of this Science. Words cannot express my deep gratitude to God, and to our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, for giving us this healing Truth.
