Resources

Here's a list of resources I have found useful in my quest to understand and cope with chronic illness.  They are arranged in no particular order of importance or fondness.  More like just the sequence in which they came off my bookshelf.  I hope you will let me know if you find one to be of particular use to you, or if there is something you would like to see added to the list.  As always, this is for your benefit, and I am here to serve.
