I collected even more links that I've been reading through. Some of them I still have to finish! This also marks my 36th post (I believe?) in 2013. It is an odd coincidence that I also posted a total of 36 post in 2012. I definitely did not intend to do that! So here's to another year of my ongoing blog over embouchure dystonia!!!! I can't believe I've written that much and recorded so many videos. I am so happy though knowing that my blog helps others realize they're not as alone as they think they are with this disorder. I've received support messages, and also love to hear about other people's experiences with the disorder and how they cope as well. It's always interesting to find similarities in things that help, but also to see the differences in observations from one person's personal journey to another. Here are the links!
