I was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2010 at age 18. After a few years of treatment, my seizures were well controlled, but would return if I stopped taking my medicine. In 2019 I had brain surgery to repair the problems it had caused with my memory, but was told I would have to remain on medication as it would not stop my seizures. But in 2021, I started hearing the Lord tell me I would be healed. It was hard to come off my medicine because in the past it would have resulted in a seizure with a week. But the Lord gave me the faith and I started to really believe healing scriptures (like Isaiah 53:5) as truth. About a year ago I went off my medication after a particularly impactful worship night and have never had another seizure!
