After the birth of our twins I suffered from postnatal depression

After the birth of our twins I suffered from postnatal depression. In searching the local library for something that might be able to help me, I came across Mary Baker Eddy's book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. At that time I felt that I needed buoyancy and proportion in my daily life, and reading this book gave me this and so much more. To me it was like the pearl of great price mentioned in the Bible. What's more, reading it healed me of the depression.

At one time I had prayerful help from a Christian Science practitioner for a fluid retention condition for which I had previously taken medication. Each month this condition built up to a few days of misery and almost uncontrollable irritability. Through the practitioner's prayers I was healed. Instead of accepting the healing, however, I began to watch for the symptoms to reappear. When they did, I felt too ashamed to tell the practitioner and decided that I would have to handle the situation myself. I found an article in the Sentinel that encouraged me to look forward to each day with joy and the expectancy of good rather than with dread. So I started doing this.
