Hello, my name is Ron Blair (@ronblair22). I like with Trigeminal Neuralgia, Occipital Neuralgia, Atrial Fibrillation, Chronic Migraines, Acute Intermittent Porphyria, Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD. I’ve also had three strokes and am recovered from Binge Eating Disorder. I used to work as a pharmacy tech but now am disabled (although taking online classes to be a paralegal). Before I got sick I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in scouting. I enjoy photography, photo editing, and being outdoors! Before my chronic conditions got in the way, I was a bit of an adrenaline junkie (but that’s had to slow down a lot). That’s one thing I miss! Well that and what was my future medical career. But missing these things has taught me that the direction you think your life may be going may not be where it’s heading, it may be going down a path you never imagined! One where you can slow down, stop and smell the roses, and meet some amazing people. That’s what chronic pain/illness has done to life for me.
