I suffered for several years from nephritis, and later, in addition, a painful inflammation of the bladder. I was in various hospitals. I got better, but after some time the pain became so severe that even morphine injections did not ease it. Because of the many powders and tablets I was taking, my appetite became very poor, and I could scarcely take food any more, so that it was expected that I would die.

At that time I was already acquainted with Christian Science, but I did not yet understand it well. My sister, who knew more of its teachings, urged me to let myself be healed through Christian Science. Also, I had reached the place where I had no more confidence in the doctor and material remedies and was ready to trust God.

I told my husband, who was unacquainted with Science, of my decision. He was astonished at it, and when the doctor made his visit, he said to him: "My wife's gone crazy. Put some sense into her head. She wants to turn to Christian Science and have herself treated by a practitioner."
