During the First World War, I...

During the First World War, I was employed on war work. I worked very long hours and under so much strain that when the war ended I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. At this time I read about a doctor in another city who treated his patients through hypnotism. I made a journey to see this doctor, and as soon as I arrived I telephoned his office, but was told he was out of the city.

I decided to remain there over the week end, and on Saturday evening, while walking aimlessly around, I came to a Christian Science Reading Room on the ground floor of a building. The Reading Room was closed, but the window was lighted, and for the first time I saw the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I read the two pages to which it was open, and what I read appealed to me very strongly. When I returned home I lost no time in buying a copy of the textbook, and through its study I found freedom from the nervous trouble that bothered me. Since then I have many times been healed of discord through reading the inspired pages of our textbook. When I first read the chapter "Animal Magnetism Unmasked," I was filled with gratitude for divine guidance and for protection from inquiring further into hypnotic influence.
