One day I realized that walking was becoming more and more difficult for me. Use of my legs, arms, and hands was growing increasingly painful. Although I called a Christian Science practitioner for help, the condition seemed to grow steadily worse.

At the time I was serving as First Reader in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I also held a position as office manager in a large department store chain. It was imperative for me to continue working, for I was then the sole support of my husband and our three children. I was forced to wear large sneakers in order to walk at all, and then I could only shuffle along. Each time I had to write (and this was often, as many reports were compiled in longhand before they were given to the typist), my hand cramped and ached.
