Okay, so I'm new to this forum, and I've found it super helpful. I've been gluten free for 6 months now, and dairy free for three years.

Anyways, while reading through this site, I almost need a translator! Here are some things I have come across..

g.f. which I assume means Gluten Free

CC..cross contamination?

D

DD

DH

...

others?

Ex: "There was some cc and now I'm feeling serious D" or "my dd was glutened"

Want to let me in the loops so I know what i'm reading? Thanks a bunch.. ;)

Devon

D = diarrhea

C = constipation

cc = cross-contamination or cross-contact

DD = Dear Daughter

DS = Dear Son

DW = Dear Wife

DH could have the usual chat meaning of Dear Husband, or here it could mean Dermatitis Herpetiformis

g.f. is gluten-free, if you type it without the periods it will change automatically (not a good thing if you meant girlfriend)

c.d. is celiac disease, if you type it without the periods it will change automatically (this can cause confusion if you meant a Compact Disc) :lol:

A couple more that come up often refer to stores:

TJ = Trader Joe's

WF = Whole Foods Market

And don't forget ED (explosive diarrhea, not the other meaning :lol:)

BIL and SIL and MIL --brother, sister and mother-in-law

And then there's the really medical ones -- SLE (lupus); EE (eosinophilic esophagitis), etc. You are probably going to just have to google these ones like a lot of us do :D

Funny I always wondered also and sorta just figured out by the context around it. Didn't know the actual words the abbreviations were for though. :lol:
