Healing of severe flu during epidemic

Some years ago, when the world was facing an epidemic of a particularly aggressive strain of flu, I found myself coming down with flu symptoms. To be honest, I didn’t think much about it. I just wanted to “sleep it off.” But a few days in, when the symptoms hadn’t improved in the slightest, it finally struck me that I should be addressing the problem as a Christian Scientist. 

I began slowly by going through the motions of what I thought a Christian Scientist should be doing—reading that week’s Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly, repeating the Lord’s Prayer, listening to hymns, and calling a Christian Science practitioner for Christian Science treatment. However, things seemed to go from unpleasant to worse. After several days I still wasn’t able to hold any food down and was drinking only a little bit of water. I lost over thirty pounds that week. And now family members were trying to hide the concern on their faces when they saw me. 

We'd love to hear from you!
