Let’s be honest, getting sick is never fun for anyone in your family. Fall and winter colds are especially harsh for us,as the weather seems to exacerbate the symptoms and who wants to be sick for the holidays anyway.
Whether it is me, or one of the kids, when we feel sick, no one wants to brave the colder air and make an arduous trip to a cramped, packed doctor’s office along with everyone else who feels as miserable as you do.
When my daughter gets sick, not only does that stop her in her tracks from work, but also missing classes at school. No matter who is getting sick, I am thankful that technology allows me to access an online service like Amwell. With the touch of my phone, I can speak with a professional and even get prescribed medication, if needed.
About 10 days ago, I was getting the sudden symptoms of a cold. First the ear aches came, then the dry throat and before I knew it, my nose was running like a sieve. Working in insurance claims, I cannot take the time to miss work, especially when so many people are patiently waiting for me to adjust their claims, let alone, get my co-workers sick.
Amwell to the rescue! I was able to hop on a quick chat with a doctor and have a prescription for an antibiotic sent to my local pharmacy. I picked up my prescription and didn’t miss a beat with my busy week at work and home.
