I want to express my profound gratitude for Christian Science

I want to express my profound gratitude for Christian Science. As a young married woman. I lost my strength and became dizzy. When I had to walk by myself, I hugged the buildings in the hope that I would not fall. Doctors could find nothing wrong with me. Life became such a burden that I contemplated suicide many times. Each time I thought of suicide, the Word of God, which at the time I did not recognize as such, would say to me, "You have so much to be grateful for, why should you do such a dreadful thing?" I would drop into my chair and say, "O God, help me."

At that time I was experiencing severe headaches. With the hope that a change of glasses might relieve the headaches, I went to an optometrist. He saw my great need and spoke to me about Christian Science. My extremity was indeed God's opportunity. I called for an appointment with a practitioner. I had to go by myself, and surely God was with me. I had a most wonderful visit and walked out of that office a new woman. I was instantaneously healed of those dreadful headaches. I felt like Christian in "The Pilgrim's Progress" when the burden on his back fell off.

For months I had not been interested in food and had lost much weight. On this day I had lunch in a restaurant and enjoyed it very much. I then decided to travel to my husband's place of business to tell him the good news. We both rejoiced. Day by day I could feel myself growing stronger. A month later I was able to remove the glasses and could read the finest print with ease.
