Who gets omg?

Who gets omg?

Can you clarify?: Omg is a texting-age expression "oh my god" but used even by secularists to express amazement and dismay at once. It's no medical acronym that I recognize though there are some trashy websites preseting medical freaks as having "omg disease". To which disease are you referring? Someone on healthtap will be happy to answer. ...Read more
