After the Second World War, I...

[Original in Swedish]

After the Second World War, I found myself in a miserable state physically and mentally. I had no clear concept of God, but I understood that those who believed in Him were happier than I. Medicine was to me the alpha and omega in spite of the fact that the strong medicines and sedatives I had been given for organic heart disease, mental anguish, and insomnia had failed to help me. The fear of death, which plagued me, was the hardest of all to bear, and it was with great difficulty that I kept house for my husband and three children.

During a short absence from home because of illness, I stayed with a good friend of mine, and there I borrowed a copy of "Mary Baker Eddy: A Life Size Portrait" by Lyman P. Powell. I became very much interested in this and also borrowed a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy; this I read practically every free moment. I gave up medicines almost immediately and felt much better.
