    Yes, DD stand for Darned disease. Unless the context indicates it stands for something else such as Dear Daughter, Donald Duck or David Duchovny.

    Are you a hawkeye in Des Moines? Did you know there was a village in Iowa named Hawkeye? I was born in the adjacent county of Winneshiek.

    Wow, Rock.... all this time I thought it ALWAYS meant David Duchovny! For years, I've been blaming poor David for everything that is wrong in my life.

    I can't remember anything because of David Duchovny.
    I can no longer be as active as I once was, because of David Duchovny.
    I am in constant pain, thanks to David Duchovny.

    I have read on the ProHealth boards about all the horrible things that DD is responsible for, and knew that somehow, for unknown reasons, David Duchovny was at the root of the FM epidemic. I never questioned it. I just figured it fell into the realm of the unexplained, like other Duchovny related things.

    I guess I owe DD an apology.

    Raven, don't feel too bad. We all were confused over these abbreviations at one time. When I first got online, I visited a board discussing my fav soap opera. I was always seeing the acronym "SORAS," and how various young characters were victims of SORAS. My mind always read it as "sore a$$" but I knew there was more to it, as I had never seen a soap kid get a whippin'. Turned out to mean "soap opera rapid aging syndrome". Like when a child character isn't seen for a while, then is replaced by another kid several years older - they were aged rapidly.

    I blamed David Duchovny for that too!

    I'd love to see DD's (David Duchovny's) face when he reads your letter of apology!

    (Don't feel bad, Raven, I had the same troubles when I first started reading message boards! I think most of us did!)

    all the best,

    That "ROFL" in Victoria's subject line was not the sound of her choking on a hairball. It stands for "Rolling on the floor, laughing."

    Who is David Duchovny? And why does he cause all these problems.

    First thing I checked was the official roster of mad scientists. He's not there! lol

    He's probably one of those so-called "sane" scientists.

    What the heck are titers? I hear this all the time on the fibro board but I never had the guts to ask.

    Oh another one is EBV?

    OD is actually a medical abbreviation. It's for right eye as in oculus dexter; dexter as in right or dexterous.

    OS is for left eye as in sinister. Left handed people are sinister.
