"O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me" (Ps. 30:2). From girlhood on I felt a sense of loneliness because my parents were gone. As the years went by I accepted other erroneous concepts, such as lack, disease, and God's abandonment of me. Six medical specialists, after fighting to save my health for a number of years, finally told me that they were sorry but my body no longer responded to any treatment. They said that I was afflicted with a number of organic complications, so that when they tried to cure one, another was aggravated. Among these ailments were varices and phlebitis (from which I had suffered for twenty-three years), two slipped disks, thyroid trouble, excess of uric acid, and chronic pharyngitis. In addition, I was on the verge of losing my sight.

I had heard of Christian Science a year before, but I had not pursued it, because I wanted to be loyal to my own religion. I prayed constantly to God in my own way. But I was sure that those doctors who had studied so much really had the ability to decide about my life, so I accepted their opinions and advice unconditionally.
