Explanations of abbreviations

i am one of those non Instant messaging and texting people who has trouble figuring out some of the abbreviation’s that we all use here on TuD. what can i say, i’m getting older. how about if everyone puts in the ones they use along with the explanation of what it means so that not only i can be more knowledgeable, but others with my same problem can understand too. i get the usual like lol and otoh, but i keep running into some that have me totally stumped. that includes some of the health complications that have been shortened like rls (restless leg syndrome).
thanks, from the new age illiterate.

I’ll help with a couple i know…
