I like the bend the rules in the English language. That’s how new words get invented, right? So, there may be some confusion concerning initials, terms, and acronyms I may use. That’s why you should always consult the Luluisms Dictionary!

People I Frequently Refer To:
C.S. – my husband
T.D. – my son
MIL – my mother-in-law
FIL – my father-in-law
Lulu – my blog identity
T.M. – my real identity
Em – also my real identity
Rents – my parents
Rs – my husband’s best friend

Note – I cannot be certain that I actually invented these terms, but I can say that they originated in my own imagination.

Norms – individuals or groups of individuals who have not experienced mental illness first-hand or otherwise

Manslation – what I suppose the underlying meaning of a man’s words are. A play on “man” and “translation”.

Manslator – a built in mechanism that all women are born with that can be honed to perform Manslation. In short, Bullshit Radar.

Doctorspeak – what I suppose the underlying meaning of a doctor’s words are.

Bleeper – an alternative word to calling someone or something a swear word. You can use your imagination here.

Bleeping – specifically, an alternative word for a form of the F-word.
