More than twenty-five years ago,...

More than twenty-five years ago, while I was still in college, ugly growths appeared on the fingers of my hands. I was seized with an overwhelming sense of fear at the alarming rate with which they seemed to grow and spread. It caused me much embarrassment, and I found myself keeping my fists clenched and my hands covered and out of sight as much as possible, for the unsightly condition elicited fearful remarks from those who saw them.

My family had become interested in Christian Science years before, when my youngest sister was healed of bronchial pneumonia after specialists had said she could not live through the night. During the succeeding years, I myself had been the beneficiary of the healing power of Christian Science on many occasions and had witnessed the efficacy of its teachings with other members of our family. It was natural, therefore, that my parents should suggest that I call a Christian Science practitioner for treatment. I seemed, however, to be experiencing a phase of great uncertainty and confusion about many things and stated that I wished to have medical attention. Instead of trying to persuade me to follow their suggestion, they very wisely permitted me to carry out my own desire, and I sought the advice of a physician whom I knew, who directed me to a specialist.
