I didn’t know what a lot of the abbreviations meant. I’m glad you asked. Some are medical terms such as DX, RX, TID, BID, these are medical shorthand. I had no idea DH, MIL, etc meant ‘dear’.

I remember when I first came on board I was wondering why so many elders were moving to IL, thinking for months it meant Illinois.... or AL, for Alabama.... or NH, for New Hampshire. I was thinking were those States the go to places to retire???

At least I knew enough that VA meant Veterans Admin instead of Virginia.

Then I noticed when we had the very easy to find old search engine on this website, that I could put in the initials for something I couldn't figure out and up would pop a clue :)  The search engine we have now will give the State instead of the "term".... bummer.

dH can be just about anything when referring to one's husband, depending on the mood or in context of the post.
Dear is only one.
Husband with decline, dementia, disturbed, dumb (now that would not be nice, would it?), and no offense to a poster who named herself "Dorker", dH could be dork husband.
When I use dH, those are my hubs new initials, lol.

And h x. stands for history.

Or, DH could mean darn husband, damn husband, or dumb husband. By using just the letters you don't have to commit, LOL. [LOL = laughing out loud, that's funny, or Little Ol' Lady, depending on context.]

This comes up periodically, if you do a site search for abbreviations you will come up with a few other threads. This is the longest so I assume it should cover everything 😜
