In my late twenties I passed through what seemed then to be a very dark period. Following a divorce I was left with the care and upbringing of my two small children—a responsibility which I took very much to heart. Around then a friend gave me a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and I began reading it off and on. I derived a great deal of comfort and peace just from reading the book, although I didn't understand much of what it said.

At one point about two months later, I developed a very severe throat condition. I went to my regular physician, who diagnosed a strep infection. This was not new to me, as I had spent several weeks in bed and had had much doctoring when this condition had presented itself on previous occasions.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
