As a work at home mom of three boys, it is easy to let my health get out of hand. In fact, last year around this time I had pneumonia for close to a month before it got so bad that I went into the ER and got a diagnosis. However, as a wahm, during the day it’s either work and make money to provide for them or spend money at the ER or doctor’s office while not making any money at all. Once the kids are back from school and my workday is over I then have to focus on being a mom as well as on the weekends. Do you see my dilemma?
You may have noticed for the past couple of weeks my post have been sparse. Well, besides from the kids being out for winter break, I have been feeling like crap this entire time. I mean each day is so hard to get through with pain in my face, my nose being stuffy and more recently pains in my chest when I cough and my ears plugging up. Honestly, for the past couple of nights I was really starting to think that I had pneumonia again from the way my chest was hurting and all of the other symptoms.
Well today, snow flurries came, and I had to go out in that mess to take the kids to the bus…Once they were gone and the house quiet, I decided I would get online with a doctor from Doctor on Demand to see if they could provide me with some sort of relief. Boy am I glad that I did. While I don’t have something as serious as pneumonia I do have bronchitis and a sinus infection. Double whammy right?
Why I Decided to Get on With Doctor on Demand & My Experience
At first, I thought that they wouldn’t be able to help me because on their website it says if you have chest pain to go to the ER. However, this wasn’t happening so I thought what do I have to lose.
I got in my comfortable pajama pants, left my hoodie and hat on, and got to it. At first, I was a little discouraged because despite the fact that I used a code for a free visit they still asked for my credit card information (to verify my age they claimed).
However, once on the checkout page it still said payment with MasterCard. Well, they didn’t end up charging my card the code did work for free. But, I just wanted to mention this bit for you because you can get a free visit by using the code “GIVEAWAYS15” and I didn’t want you to go there and see that and be like, “Hey, she said this is free but its not”.
Anyways, once there I was told there was a wait of 7 minutes.
However, this 7-minute wait jumped up to 20 minutes.
The good news is I ended up waiting about 5 minutes.
Once with the doctor, I had my diagnose in less than 15 minutes, meds going to my local Walgreens, and she even typed up some additional recommendations to help me feel better quicker.
Overall, as you can see I was able to be seen very quickly and diagnosed quicker than a doctor’s office or emergency room would have been able to do. I was able to wear my pjs, sit in my kitchen, and I didn’t have to commute anywhere, but still received the same results. I’m also anemic so I should mention I hate cold doctors’ offices and wearing those little gowns…ALL of that was avoided with Doctor on Demand.
