It's more slanted to information about young people having surgery, but many of the points are ones I only picked up here after months of membership. This is a good summary with many helpful facts lost in the cracks with most online reports (they tend to be either too general or too random in their specificity).

Surprisingly useful in a practical way, especially for people just starting out or who want to explain things to relatives/friends. Besides, I always appreciate lucidity in summarizing complex issues I'm dealing with, even if I haven't actually learned anything new. It helps me think in a more orderly way - hard, when it's a subject fraught with anxiety for me. The related inks are good too, but the surgery link was the one that most struck me by its clarity and utility.
