Autoimmune Disease Resources and Other Health Resources (i.e. websites;books)

Here, I will give websites or resources that I think will be valuable to people suffering from Graves' disease and other Autoimmune Disorders or illnesses. This list will include resources that I don't necessarily discuss as part of a main post, but I still feel they may be helpful. Websites with links will be highlighted in red. Websites without links will be in brown. Book resources will be in blue. Magazines or journals will be in green. So, check back to this post periodically for updates. Enjoy!
