Several years ago, I began having symptoms of weakness that prevented me from walking or even standing. I only wanted to be in bed. I didn’t eat anything and was unable to rest well. Because of this condition, I couldn’t even think properly; therefore, it was very hard for me to pray, which is how I heal my problems.
My husband was very concerned, and asked me to see a doctor. I didn’t want to worry him further, so I agreed. The physician did some blood tests, which indicated a serious deficiency of certain types of cells in my blood. They wanted to hospitalize me the same day and do some blood transfusions. I refused to accept the diagnosis and asked my husband to take me back home.
In my study of Christian Science I had learned that my true identity is spiritual, that I’m a perfect idea of God; therefore, such a diagnosis could not be true, but an error that I could heal through prayer.
