Online Resources

The Internet is a wild and wonderful place, isn’t it?  Okay – it has it’s scary stuff, too.  But man, there’s lots of great stuff out there – particularly if you’re willing to do a little due diligence and digging to find good, solid, reputable information to help you along your DS journey.

Over the years I’ve kind of stockpiled some online resources and I find myself sharing them with patients – a lot – so thought, “Hey!  I should post those things on my blog!” and so I’m gonna do just that.

Bear with me – this isn’t something that will come together in a day.  Check back often, as the list will be growing daily.
