I was wondering that myself. I Googled it, but of course all that comes up is WWII D-Day. I was thinking it might be "Discovery Day" as in the day you found out your spouse is having an affair, or the day your affair was discovered. I may be way off base, though.

That doesn't sound far off either. I'd have to read that one in a sentence...

This thread should be sticky.
Had to google "gas lighting" even though I got the jist of how it was used in context

Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented to the victim with the intent of making them doubt their own memory and perception. It may simply be the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, or it could be the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.

The term gaslighting comes from the play Gas Light and its film adaptations. In those works a character uses a variety of tricks, including turning the gas lamps lower than normal, to convince his spouse that she is crazy. Since then it became a colloquial expression which has now also been used in clinical and research literature.[1][2]

what's d-day?
It says in the abbreviations list that DD is dear daughter, Dday is divorce day.

On this site tho, DD is discovery day. I have taken it to mean that anyway, used it as that, and in every context it seems to mean that.
