Acronymns... what are they?
« on: September 10, 2011, 09:17:39 AM »
Hi,

Even after reading a lot of posts, I still am scratching my brain trying to figure out what all the acronyms actually stand for. Is there a glossary somewhere?

DS means your son, but what does D stand for?

Thanks,
Cirette

Go to Forum Support and read about abbreviations. We didn't really make them up, then were brough here from any other sites to make posting easier. I just love FOO (family of origin.)  ;) Sending love...

Quickly, here are the most common ones:

DS - dear son
DD - dear daughter
DH - dear husband
FOO - Family of origin
DIL- daughter in law, FDIL - future daughter in law
MIL - mother in law
IMO - in my opinion
