Acronyms and what they mean?
« on: May 23, 2016, 02:51:57 pm »
I am just now on day 36 of treatment, out of the brain fog, and finally read the rules....oops sorry for that one. This second month of treatment has way fewer side effects for me...whoohooo!
Could someone please make a list of all the acronyms used in the forums and what they each stand for?
I was totally baffled gradually figuring most of them out as I read,,,some I am still trying to figure out.
Thanks for any response.
