Ok Ladies, help me out here!

This might make me sound crazy, but I've been trying to catch on and learn all by myself and it isn't helping. LOL.
I am so lost on all the shorthand used by everyone. LOL. DD, DH, SO, etc. Someone help me out here. I tried looking to see if they were spelled out for me somewhere on the website, but I couldn't find anything.
Thanks ladies,
