I attended college and roomed with a very loving girl who was liked by all her classmates. She was a Christian Scientist, the only one I had met at that time. We both married after graduation. I had three boys and she had a daughter and a son.

There was an extreme shortage of teachers in 1960, and I was called upon to fill a primary grade vacancy. It was while I was in this position that many problems were presented to me and I was to prove Mary Baker Eddy's statement, "Trials are proofs of God's care" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 66). I became ill and was forced to stop teaching in the middle of the year. I was sent to a hospital but nothing seemed to help. A year later I learned the doctor had told my husband I had multiple sclerosis and there was no known cure. My youngest son was two years old at this time. I was sent home with strict orders to rest at regular intervals of three hours.
