About six years ago I was a broken woman, physically and mentally. This condition was the result of a nervous trouble of many years' standing, for which I had called in a good deal of medical help without receiving more than temporary relief. The nervous condition showed itself most of all in dreadful melancholy with long periods of insomnia and extreme weariness. The underlying cause of my despair and unrest was the belief that God had forsaken me. This made me feel as if I were bogged in a morass, sinking. I felt as if I neither could nor would live any longer.

Then in my greatest need God led me to Christian Science, and this was the truth of the tide in my life. Gradually everything began to lighten and brighten within and around me. The great nervousness was quieted, and sleep came back. After an unforgettable interview with a loving Christian Scientist, I got a joyously clear glimpse of the truth that man is God's image and likeness, and this alone opened vistas of light. I beheld as in a vision man's God-given dominion, without yet understanding anything of it. God's good gifts began to bless my family and me in every possible way. One difficult problem after another was solved, and in our home, where formerly inharmony, sickness, unrest seemed to be prevalent, there were now harmony, joy, peace, and health; and in my heart praise and hope instead of sorrow and despair.

I am so grateful that through the study of this Science I have been helped to uncover so-called melancholy and discouragement as merely sins disguised, under which are hidden self-pity, ingratitude, fear, perhaps also a little envy, a little resentment, false criticism, or other similar errors which perturb our consciousness, making us discontented and depressed.
