In 1990 I suffered from a complex case of anorexia, which almost cost me my life. I was very lonely at the time, and undergoing psychotherapy. I isolated myself more and more from others, and ultimately I hardly ate anything at all. I lost so much weight that doctors finally gave me up. Outwardly I was barely recognizable anymore, and too weak to go even short distances without using all my strength.

Finally I turned to a Christian Scientist, who stated his willingness to help me. After my first visit with him, I became increasingly aware that this condition stemmed from hunger for love and affection. We each studied Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, in particular pages 221 to 224.

In our conversations, the Christian Scientist assured me that I could not actually be alone and lonely, because nothing can separate man from God's nearness, His protection, love, and affection. To die was not something that was in my hands, for God's love is indivisible, and as divine Life He is eternal and sustains everything.
