Where, preferably online, can I find credible information about Schizotypal Personality Disorder?

In 1999 I was discharged from the Navy after spending only a few months at the Nuclear Power Training Command. I was given a diagnosis of SPD, ending my less than 10 month experiment with the military. I have been in denial about the disorder for years throughout college etc., but now, fifteen years later, I Googled "schizotypal" and realize, 'yeah, that's totally me, and this is why I'm so friggin weird.'
Problem is, most of the information on the Internet seems akin to MBTI typology bullshit; is there so little objective information, and am I right to be wary about all the blog chatter concerning "low latent inhibition"? Where can I go to get beyond the story-spinning? Are there legitimate web-based support groups? Or do I just need to get a second job to pay for a good therapist? :)
