New to the site and flitting around almost frantically reading and posting where I think I have something to contribute.
I am finding acronyms, that I cannot figure out, and this is making it difficult to get a sense of what the poster is trying to say.
I need to understand these things, and I was hoping the community would be willing to provide a little guidance in the explanation of these acronyms.
I'll list a few that I came across, and perhaps the community could reply and even add others I may have not encountered yet.
Thanks in advance for your help gentlemen.
CSA, think I got this one, Childhood Sexual Assault, PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but
FB and SSA are confounding me. My memory is failing me now, and I can't remember the others. Any help would be appreciated.

Eric
Your addition is also appreciated

That's quite the conundrum

Keep well
