Many years ago I began to feel that I couldn't think clearly, and I couldn't be at peace in my surroundings. I gradually had the impression that the way I perceived things was not in accord with the way others were thinking. The situation seemed to me to grow ever more severe until one day, during a conversation, my thinking and feelings got completely out of control. I had what probably amounted to a nervous breakdown.

I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. The healing did not come immediately, but there was always progress—step by step—and I was filled with confidence that the full healing would come.

In thinking back over this experience, I can only say that the situation at the time was not easy for me. It had become very clear that the solution to my problem lay partially in my having a great deal to correct in myself. Well, I faced up to this challenge, for it was my most fervent desire to see myself as God sees me. I prayed, "[Lord] open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law" (Psalms).
