That doesn't sound far off either. I'd have to read that one in a sentence...

Re: Common Message Board Abbreviations & Acronyms

This thread should be sticky.
Had to google "gas lighting" even though I got the jist of how it was used in context

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented to the victim with the intent of making them doubt their own memory and perception. It may simply be the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, or it could be the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.

The term gaslighting comes from the play Gas Light and its film adaptations. In those works a character uses a variety of tricks, including turning the gas lamps lower than normal, to convince his spouse that she is crazy. Since then it became a colloquial expression which has now also been used in clinical and research literature.[1][2]

It says in the abbreviations list that DD is dear daughter, Dday is divorce day.

On this site tho, DD is discovery day. I have taken it to mean that anyway, used it as that, and in every context it seems to mean that.

QualJin, while i don't know, i'm guessing undiagnosed, as in undiagnosed borderline personality disorder.

Re: Common Message Board Abbreviations & Acronyms

Is D-Day not commonly referred to in conversation as an important, significant, possibly dreadful day? (based on history)
Eg: 'I'm writing an exam on the 20th - its D-Day!'

I might have missed them but I often see HD and LD spoken of. Are they High Drive and Low Drive, as in sex drives?

Thanks

Re: Common Message Board Abbreviations & Acronyms

HD and LD = High Drive and Low Drive is correct

I believe D-Day means divorce. There is a list of abbreviations on the first page of this thread.

Isn't D Day Discovery Day?

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
