Before coming to Christian Science...

From the November 1912 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Before coming to Christian Science, I had been suffering from ill health for many years, and worry seemed to increase it, until at times I suffered almost complete collapse. I tried many doctors and remedies without any benefit, I also tried willpower, and thought that if I paid no attention to my ailments they might disappear in time; but I kept getting worse, until finally I gave up and sank into a state of hopelessness, when death would indeed have been welcome.
