DISCLAIMER: Thanks to the folks at Amwell for sponsoring today's post.
Let's face it, short of placing your kids (and yourself) in a germ-free plastic bubble, there's no foolproof way to avoid the funk this Winter. It's almost inevitable. It seems like every year, usually right around the holidays, someone gets sick.
Be it the kids with a stomach bug or Mom and Dad with the general crud, odds are, someone will get sick and the only thing worse than being sick around the holidays is... going to a Doctor's office and sitting for an hour or more to be seen... when you're sick around the holidays. *insert Debbie Downer music here*
It's a fact; being sick is not fun. In all honesty, it sucks. You're snuffly, sneeze-y, tired, grumpy and the last thing you want to do is put on clothes, get behind the wheel of a car and drive yourself to the Doctor. (where you're subject to pick up a really nice case of pink eye)
Wouldn't it be nice if you could just call the Doctor (whilst still in your cozy, germ covered jammies) and be like..."Look, Doc, I've caught the funk, I feel like I'm dying, could you hook a girl up with some meds that will make me feel like a human again?!" Why can't there be an app for that?! Oh, but there is! Say "Hello" to Amwell.
