Hi, can anyone please explain the abbreviations and what they stand for on the forum.  Reasonably new to this and don't understand all the posts.  Thanks!  ie. (FOO, UPBD)  :)

Hello Maxine, welcome :)

You can find them in the personality disorders amongst other great info that will surely interest you.

FOO means family of origin
UBPD   Undiagnosed borderline personality disorder
I may be the black sheep of the family, but some of the white sheep are not as white as they try to appear.

Hey welcome to OOTF. If your screen name is your real name please change it for your confidentiality sake. Thanks. As for abbreviations you can find them in the Toolbox section I think. So for example FOO it Family of Origin and UPBD is Undiagnosed Borderline Personality Disorder. The Toolbox is an amazing resource with all kinds of great ideas and tools.
