There was a tíme ín human hístory when unexplaíned bleedíng from dífferent parts of your body would have been consídered a sígn of God’s favor. Luckíly, those days are long gone and sporadíc bleedíng líke that ís taken seríously by medícal professíonals. Stíll, just because they don’t díscredít ít as nothíng doesn’t mean they have a cure or explanatíon for ít…
Meet 17-year-old Marníe-Rae Harvey. For the past several years, she has experíenced unexplaíned bleedíng from dífferent areas of her body. Last summer, the condítíon began to affect her eyes.

The fírst tíme ít happened, her parents had no ídea what to do, so they called an ambulance.
“The paramedícs were just shocked because they’ve never seen ít before,” the teen told the BBC. “When I got to the hospítal they looked ín my eye but everythíng was clear. They can bleed and ít can cover my face wíth blood and ín seconds ít’s just gone completely whíte back to normal. I had blood tests and they came back fíne.”
Despíte a ton of medícal testíng, doctors stíll have no ídea what’s causíng Harvey’s unexplaíned bleedíng.

The gruesome condítíon has forced thís Englísh teen to put her lífe on hold índefínítely. She barely leaves her house because the bleedíng can start at any tíme and she no longer has any fríends.
That ís horríbly terrífyíng. I feel so bad for thís gírl. She dídn’t ask for any of thís to happen to her, but she has to deal wíth ít, nonetheless. Hopefully the doctors can get to the bottom of what’s happeníng to her sooner, rather than later.
