Healed after a chemical burn

This past spring, during my sophomore year of high school, I had an opportunity to put Christian Science into practice in a way that I never had before.

One day during chemistry class, we were doing an experiment that involved holding a flame up to a glass beaker of chemicals. As I was in the middle of this, the beaker exploded an inch or two from my hand, and glass and chemicals were sprayed all over me. I never received a formal diagnosis, but I was told that the wound on my hand included third-degree burns. There were burns on my arm and neck as well.
