My study of Christian Science was prompted by a desire to find a way out of a nervous condition. For nine years up to 1914 I had been supervisor of music in the public schools of a large city in the South. During the summer vacation, my peace of mind received a shake-up. I became tormented by the thought that my work was not satisfactory to myself or to those with whom I was connected.
The mental condition that I stirred up for myself was pitiful. I took bromide through the day and sleeping powders at night to quiet my nerves, as I thought. I even planned suicide. School was about to open, and I knew I had to ask for a leave of absence. My thought was that I was done for. I felt that there was no other work I could do and that consequently I should starve. At this point, I went in desperation to a girlhood friend of my mother's. She was the first Christian Scientist I had ever known. She lovingly directed me to a practitioner, and after four months of constant treatment, I was able to return to the South and take up my duties, not, however, happily at first; but as I read the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, attended church services, and did the best I knew how, the beautiful truth that unfolded was like the opening of a rosebud and was fragrant with the spirit of Love. I see now that this awful experience was a blessing in disguise which came to me that I might be brought out of the darkness of material thinking into the sunlight of Truth.
