Hemorrhage stanched

Originally written in Portuguese, this testimony was first published in the July 2013 Portuguese, French, German, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

A friend of mine once mentioned that a uterine infection had left her bedridden for days, and she had taken antibiotics for many weeks. 

A few weeks later, in February 2012, I started experiencing the same symptoms. The severest of them was heavy bleeding, which was not part of my menstrual cycle. I realized that my friend had described the symptoms in detail and that, without realizing it, I had taken into my thought those symptoms.

I immediately contacted a Christian Science practitioner and asked her to help me through prayer. After our conversation, I felt a sense of confidence that kept me from being frightened by the bleeding.
