It’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s the time for colds. It’s the time for the flu.It’s the time where everyone gets sick. But you know who doesn’t have time to be sick? Mom.
And, if I am being honest, there is never a good time for mom to get sick. Normally, I would self-diagnosis. Self-medicate. Cross my fingers and hope that I get better soon. Sadly, there is just not any time for a trip to the doctor’s office. But self-care is so important. Because if mom isn’t happy (and well), nobody is!
When I was introduced to Amwell, I knew it would be my little life saver. Visit the doctor from the comfort of my couch? Sign me up for that! I could see a doctor on my time, when I was available. I didn’t have to drag myself out, sit in a waiting room, wait in an office, and, finally, see the doctor.
It sounded too good to be true but I had to try it out.

Now back to my visit. I have been getting a lot of headaches lately. I suffer from migraines but these seemed to be a bit more. More like cluster headaches. Over the counter medication was just not cutting it. So while the boys were playing after school, I grabbed the iPad and hopped on Amwell to consult with a doctor.
After putting in my information, I was able to choose the doctor I would be seeing. You can see wait times and how many patients are in front of you. You can even sign up for a text for when the doctor is ready to see you.
Once the doctor is ready, they will review your patient history and hop on to chat. The video feed was seamless and it was like sitting in their office. We talked about my headaches, what I have been currently taking, and what they suggested.
And just like that I had an action plan and I never left my couch! Sounds like a win to me!
