Hi Lilanne,
When I first started posting here, I was pretty confused too. There's a link somewhere to internet abbreviations, but someone more knowledgeable about these things will have to post it for you.
In the meantime, DH is dear husband - or d*mn husband, depending on your mood. DS is dear son, DD - dear daughter. DIL - Daughter-in-law, MIL - mother-in-law,
IMO - in my opinion, IMHO - in my HUMBLE opinion,
ROFL - rolling on the floor laughing, ROFLMAO - I'll let you figure that one out.
A few other abbreviations we use here: ana - anaphylaxis,
hx - history (as in medical history), rx - reaction, TNA - tree nut allergy, MFA - multiple food allergy, EA, MA, etc. egg, milk allergy.
There are lots more....but these are the basics. Hope this helps!
