    wow, an old thread brought to light again....In the past many months of doing wedding planning & such, I've learned that an age old abbreviation that means one thing to the rest of the world means something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT in wedding terms....so, hey, just for good measure...

    STD means Save The Date.....

    This is great, but I would have never thought to go on a site search for these definitions. I think these abbreviations and acronyms should be compiled into an alphabetical list and posted on the blue banner along with "Home", "FAQ", "Community","Calendar", "New Posts," etc. The title could be "Care Cure Dictionary", Every day there are folks new to the site and new to spinal cord injury. The injury and all of the attendant difficulties are intimidating enough. Insider jargon, abbreviations, and acronyms can create barriers to communication, understanding and education. This could be a very user friendly addition.

    TAB=Temporarily Able Bodied

    I had a therapist in rehab who referred to ABs (able bodied) as TABs instead.

    All the best,
