    I know this is a dumb question.

    Is there a list someplace of what the intials stand for?

    I tried to run a search but can't remember the word that I need. Is it acronyms?

    Thanks, Twinkles :)

    Hi Twinkles,
    If you do a search of abbreviations, you will find a lot of information. Here are a few:

    Here's a few abbreviations 04/06/05 04:50 AM

    DD = Darn Disease/damn disease
    FYI = For your information
    IMHO = In my humble opinion
    FMS = Fibromyalgia syndrome
    CFIDS = Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome
    LOL = Laugh out loud/Lots of love/Love of life...
    BTW = by the way

    Cheers

    Kathy.

    Twinkles, if you see OT before a title, that means off topic, which would mean it didn't have anything to do with our illnesses.

    If you still have any initals you don't understand, just post about it.

    I have been substituting my own ideas as well. I thought that DD was "darling daughter." That's an intersting substitution for "dumb disease."

    I finally figured out ROTFLOL, "rolling on the floor, laughing out loud," which is what I'm doing when I think of how I've been interpreting these initals.

    I've been coming up with the oddest things for the abbreviations.

    SS to me meant social security...but then someone was using it in a different context.
    I knew I needed help then!!

    Thanks again!!!

    but i'm still not sure what "sojourns syndrome is"

    I think that sojourn's is an autoimmune disorder that causes dryness of the eyes and mouth.
    From what I've been told it can be very miserable.

    The imput I've received today has been great!
    My only problem now is to remember it.

    I seem to have this hole in my brain and no one can find it! But still keep trying to pour info into my brain and it keeps escaping out that dratted hole!

    Have a great day!! Twinkles :)

    Just write those initals down on a piece of paper. That is what I have to do to remember things. We recycle, so all those notes I write go either into the shredder or into the paper recycle bins.
