Hi! I'm pretty newish here - only a few weeks old. I've already begun posting in some of the forums and have done come communicating with other members. Just thought I better properly introduce myself instead of just popping in :)

My name is Karen, my family calls me KareBear, don't ask me how I came up with my user name "eddifiedtavous" I have no idea lol, I was probably 16. I like to write, read, hike, camp, fish, hunt. I love my horse Eyesa (Eyesa Jet 2) she is a paint overro, top and bottom, champion race horse, and she is my savior. I have religion issues and I'm still trying to figure where I fit in spiritually. I'm pursuing a degree in Wildlife Biology :) Woohoo. 2-ish more years. And I love snow :) Nice to meet everyone, hope to get to know all of you fairly decent!

Oh and a few questions, I've been browsing the forums and related topics. Everyone here seems to use short hand dialect... It is a bit confusing for me!

If you don't mind schooling me on some lingo that would be awesome! Thanks again! :)

Thanks for the welcomes!

We should have short-hand lingo dictionary! I have a few questions

What does

CSA mean? Child Sexual Abuse?

TSA mean? Teen Sexual Abuse?

"T" - is that referring to therapist?

I just got schooled on (OH) meaning other half. Are there more short hand lingos I should be aware of? Its hard to make sense out of posts when some of the words abbreviated are hard to decipher! Is there anewbie cheat sheet somewhere? Thanks! :)

Hi eddifiedtavious,

I hope you are finding your way around. You are correct on CSA and most of our members use T to refer to their therapist. As for TSA, I don't know that one either, but I am not as active in the CSA related forums, so perhaps someone else can give you better guidance there. Welcome to AS.
