I attended a Christian Science Sunday School until the age of eighteen. But when I left home for college, I stopped going to church and didn't go back for fourteen years.

During college I developed a skin condition. The condition wasn't serious, but it itched and looked unattractive. Since I was not practicing Christian Science at that time, I went to a doctor, who examined me. Medicine was prescribed, which I used, but the difficulty was not cured. Several more times while I was in college I went to doctors who examined me and prescribed medicine, but with the same results.

After graduating from college, I entered the military. An Army doctor prescribed medicine for the skin condition, but still it did not clear up.
