Christian Science found me when I felt there was nothing...

Christian Science found me when I felt there was nothing left for which to live. My mother had passed on suffering from tuberculosis, and within three years the doctor informed me that my only hope of avoiding a throad operation would be for me to go to live in the Mendip hills for at least a year, staying in the open air all day. At the end of the time, although I had carried out all the instructions, I was not fit to return to my home.

Then followed an operation for an internal trouble, and after two months in hospital, I was again sent to the hills to recuperate; but after three years my recovery was not complete. Then one day, feeling utterly despondent at the prospect of a second operation, which the doctor freely admitted might not correct the trouble, I went to stay with some friends whom I knew to be Christian Scientists. While with them I expressed the wish that I might pass on, for I felt utterly weary of forlorn prospects before me.
