I have had many healings in Christian Science, but there is one in particular for which I am most grateful. As a teen-ager I went through a period of depression. I felt utterly hopeless and unloved, and I began to feel hatred for others and myself. I often considered suicide, yet I knew from what I had learned as a child in the Christian Science Sunday School that killing myself would not solve anything.

During my first year of college I experienced the worst state of depression yet. But this time I was really tired of it. I wanted to be loved and to be able to love others. I believe these longings were the beginning of my healing. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy we read (p. 1): "Desire is prayer; and no loss can occur from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded and exalted before they take form in words and in deeds." I had a desire to feel love and to see good.
