UPFRONT

Don't fall for the ads

From the February 20, 2006 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Back in college, my friend, who was studying to become a medical nurse, called me with a complaint. Over the course of her studies, she had become convinced that she had the symptoms of every disease she studied—including the diseases that only men could get! We laughed about it, but later, when I became a Christian Scientist, I would often think back to that example of the power of suggestion.
