Chat terms

If you're new to chats or to this subject area, you may see some unfamiliar abbreviations or terms. In some cases, these will be the same sort of thing used in chats elsewhere on the Internet -- for example, OTOH means "on the other hand" and LOL means "laughing out loud." You can search for these terms online.

Our own shorthand

Sometimes we use our own shorthand for terms related to our particular concerns. For instance, we often write "bc" for breast cancer and "ovca" for ovarian cancer. (Okay, so we're not consistent!) We've created a glossary of these terms to get you started.
