Being often reminded that I had been an unwanted child, I grew up with a sense of no one's ever being on my side. Doctors said I had been born with what they described as symptoms of premature aging. Some years later after being examined at a famous medical center in New England, I was shown a page listing incurable ailments, some of which were to develop later if I survived the first ones.

Although poor health seemed to block everything I endeavored to do, the generally accepted beliefs regarding God, man, and the universe bothered me even more. I would get up around two or three in the morning and write and write, trying to find a solution. I prayed each night not to live another day. Shortly after being examined at the hospital, I was led to the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.
