    As a newbie here would someone please list the common abbreviations you all use. Some I can figure out and some I can't. I would really appreciate it and I am sure there are others as well that are puzzled.

    thank you

    dear Pookie,

    I have been coming here for a while, and I still don't know all the "Fibronese" language. I hope others will contribute as well. Here are a few I do know:

    FM = Fibromyalgia
    CFS = Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    AD = Anti-depressant
    Rheumy = Rheumotologist
    DH = Dear Husband (I think)
    DD = D*mn disease (I think)
    IMHO = In my honest/humble opinion

    Hope someone else can help you out!

    Would you mind posting some of them so they can be explained?
    Some of us are so used to them we don't even notice them!
