    I'm sorry but there are some abbreviations that are used here that can't even be found on google... is like you are reading a good post and all of a sudden you lose the train of thought because one abbreviation that isnt even medical comes up.

The simpler the better, especially for those that don't speak our same lingo.

    I guarantee you there's not a single abbreviation in use you can't find via google. Go ahead, try me.
