Acronym Frenzy

Call me crazy, but it seems that in an effort to simplify our lives, the use of acronyms has reached an all new frenzy. IMHO, while I appreciate the use of a good acronym, when we have to start googling what they mean, perhaps we need to take a moment of pause.

However, when it comes to our health, acronyms rule. For instance, you may not be aware that this is GERD (Gastroesophogeal Reflux Disease) Awareness Week. Now perhaps this is TMI, but when it comes to a full week raising awareness to GI issues, we have truly reached an ironic time in our society. Nevertheless, kudos to the health experts for raising awareness to a very serious disease. Check out Dr. Weil's recommendations to get relief from GERD. TTFN (ta ta for now)
