I just read a post about if the word CIRRHOISIS how if it comes up in conversation people think of alcohol and this makes us feel a little uncomfortable. This is the way I deal with it, first I explain the disease and the problems that come with it. Once that is done PBC is mentioned the quickly I explain the word is Greek and means yellow-orangish . The comment I thought it was booze does come up but now you have educated someone and taught them some Greek language as well. Go forth readers and educate the world...
