How To See a Doctor in the Comfort of Your Home #FeelBetter #IC

dod logo large (3)I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Doctor On Demand. I received a free trial coupon code to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

This past weekend was not a lot of fun around here – at least not for me. I woke up Saturday morning after a very restless night to a 103 degree fever, a horrible headache, and body aches. I realized pretty quickly that I probably had the flu. I was so tired, I had a hard time staying awake for more than a half hour at a time and I had forgotten how much those body aches hurt. I was miserable.

I knew the best thing is if you can get on Tamiflu sooner rather than later, but the thought of going out into the single digit weather, sitting in a waiting room for who knows how long, and being exposed to whatever else was out there was not appealing in the least. Not to mention it was a weekend and my doctor wasn’t even in which would have meant a visit to Urgent Care. Just as luck would have it, I knew about Doctor on Demand.

Doctor on Demand is a handy healthcare service that provides face to face video consultations with board certified physicians, psychologists, and lactation consultants. That means you get to talk with an actual doctor without leaving your house. You can access the service on your desktop or laptop with Chrome or on your phone or tablet with their app. I didn’t even feel like stumbling down the hall to my office and elected to use the app on my phone right from my bed.

I easily downloaded the app, entered a bunch of background information, and hit the “see a doctor” button. I initially had to wait about 15 minutes for a doctor to come on, but waiting 15 minutes alone in my comfy bed is so much better than sitting in a waiting room at Urgent Care for what would have been much longer based on past experiences.

At first, I couldn’t hear the doctor and she could not hear me. I wound up ending the session after a minute and wondered what I should do. Within seconds, I received a call from Doctor on Demand’s tech support who advised me to reboot my phone and try again. Honestly, I don’t think any company or service has ever fixed an issue so quickly! This time I was connected in seconds and was able to talk to the doctor.

She listened to me describe my symptoms and agreed that it was most likely flu. She was able to call in a prescription to my local pharmacy and reminded me to drink fluids and alternate Tylenol and Advil for the headache and body pains. The whole call took about 10 minutes.

You do not have to have insurance to use Doctor on Demand and the prices are incredibly reasonable.  Your first visit is free with the coupon code WISCONSIN15. You can use your credit now or bank it for a later visit.

Omaha Steaks Review – #OmahaSteaksGifts

I've talked about how much I like going out to eat, but there are sometimes when I want to have a really nice meal at home. You know what I mean, a restaurant-quality meal without doing take out or going out. That means I would have to make it and, for me, that can be a bit of a challenge. Luckily, Omaha Steaks makes it super easy! As much as I like going out to eat, if the weather is bad I am going to want to stay put at home. Or if we have guests coming over, I will want to have something a ... read more

OshKosh B’gosh #GiveHappy

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review. We've loved OshKosh B'gosh clothing for years and always made the somewhat long trek to their stores either in Kenosha or Johnson's Creek (pretty much an hour each way for either location). Knowing we were sure to find clothes that Josh likes at fabulous prices made it worth it every time. Lucky for us, OshKosh B'gosh recently opened a new ... read more

5 Reasons You Should Attend the Chicago Auto Show #CAS15

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to check out the Chicago Auto Show before it opened to the public. The Chicago Auto Show is so much more than just checking out new cars (although that is a very cool part of it). The show also offers opportunities for education, interaction, and even entertainment. 1) […]
