As a work-from-home mom, it’s hard to the find time to take care of myself when I am responsible for earning an income, shuttling my kids around to their various activities and keeping the house clean. In my spare time, I also volunteer at church and serve on the PTA.
So, trying to balance my own health needs with my family’s schedule can be quite challenging. This is especially hard when I get sick and suffer from chronic sinus infections. I usually get 4 to 5 sinus infections a year that require me to stay in bed for a few a days at a time. The headaches, chronic congestion and several sinus pain just gets the best of me.
When I get sick, sometimes I go to the doctor, sometimes I don’t. It just depends on how much energy I can conjure up. I don’t want to have to crawl out of bed, drive to the doctor’s office and sit in the waiting room, sometimes up to two hours. Instead, I want to be home under the covers, catching up on my ZZZs.
It simply doesn’t make sense when I’m the one who’s sick, I have to get in the car and drive to the doctor. Thankfully those days are over with the introduction of the health app Heal.
Now expanding throughout California, Heal affords you access to quality, licensed physicians and pediatricians in the comfort of your own home. In fact, Heal reminds of me of the good old days when family physicians use to make house calls.
