Shortly before our youngest child was born, the doctor who was to attend me at her birth informed me that I had an internal condition which would require medical treatment immediately after the birth.

I related this conversation to the Christian Science practitioner who was helping me prepare my thought for the birth, and together we denied that any such threat could touch my true being, as God's incorporeal expression. The birth was harmonious, my recovery was complete the next day, and, since a different doctor delivered the baby, I was released from his care with no further mention of the internal condition.

However, several months later I began to feel pain in the area where this condition had been diagnosed. I was frightened and immediately sought a practitioner's help.
