    I am sure I am not the only under-educated person on this board who is mystified by some of the acronyms -- especially disease names -- used on this board. I'm not talking about "dd" or "fms" which are both common and part of the lingo of this board. I'm talking about things like EBV and ME. Some of us know what we're talking about, but others who might benefit from information are unable to apply it because we don't know what is being talked about.

    Any hope of a glossary of acronyms? Realize this would take some work and it would have to be a "living" document, but I think it would be a great service.

    Thanks for all you both do for us!

    I think I saw one somewhere in ProHealth's info for new members. I'll look around. Problem is that new ones need to be added all the time.

    I hope people do ask when they don't know what an abbrev. is used.

    OK, I did look but the abbrev. there are regular computer abbrevs. like LOL, BTW, etc. Let me think about how we can do this and keep it on the board.

    Love, Mikie
