Deep down there was a fear that if Christian Science did not give me quick relief, the outcome would be extremely serious. I therefore asked a Christian Science practitioner for help, which was immediately given. The practitioner told me to "look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 261).
