    Welcome to the site rayskeee. SV means Stomach Virus. V* means vomiting.

    sv* means stomach virus


    v* means vomit (sorry for those who don't like to see the actual words!)


    n* means nauseous


    d* means diarrhea


    Some emets can't stand to even see the actual words, therefore we use the abbreviations! I hope this helps you out a little bit!

    the only reason I use d* is because I can't actually spell it haha
    Be courageous, believe in yourself, and be the best woman you can be. I'm with you all the way.

    We use lots of abbreviations here esp as some of us can't spell d* and some hate writing or seeing the word v*. I've only written it a few times and each time I feel odd about doing it - like i'm gonna jinx myself or something[img]smileys/smilies_09.gif[/img]


    Anyway -welcome to the site! [img]smileys/smilies_01.gif[/img]

    I don't mind writing or seeing any of those words, I just abbreviate them out of respect for others who might be bothered by them.
