American Well: The Doctor will see you NOW

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Well.
All opinions and outcomes are true and of my own.

Have you ever had a medical symptom or issue that you were too embarrassed to talk to your family doctor about?
Or maybe it’s something you want to know the answer to immediately, it’s in the middle of the night, and/or you’re on vacation and would like to speak to someone right away but you’re not sure who to call.

That’s where American Well and its health related service come in.

Did you know that over half of all doctor visits can be completed without even stepping foot in a clinic?

Without going into long personal details, I had something come up that I wanted a second opinion on. The medicine prescribed was only alleviating the pain, it wasn’t really telling me what’s going on. By signing up with American Well, I was able to describe my symptom(s), explain my past medical history and any chronic illnesses I may or may not have all by the computer.
I opted out of video chat because I was at work and didn’t want to enable the webcam on a work computer, but I was able to see the physician live, and talk to her via chat text message.

Guardians of the Galaxy --- What a bunch of A-Holes.

After more than a year of anticipation from my husband … the trailer for the new Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy was released Tuesday night. I wondered where he went at 5am the next morning. You thought the Lego Movie song, "Everything is Awesome" was catchy, wait until you watch the trailer for GOTG. I don’t think my husband has spoke three words to me except for, "OogaChaka OogaChaka …. I I I I I, I’m hooked on a feeling…" and "Babe. You gotta watch this!" He hasn’t been this excited over something since … well … probably the last Marvel movie that came out in theaters. The first time he watched Guardians of the Galaxy was when a grainy video was illegally released from Comic-Con 2013. And he hasn’t stopped talking and dreaming about it since.

My husband is a nerd. And I think it’s sexy. He’s opened my eyes to things I never would’ve thought about. Sometimes he knows me better than I know myself. Like riding a roller coaster, trying a new beer, and watching the newest nerd-flicks.

Kansas … where you are allowed to discriminate and NOT be sued

This new bill that the legislature here in Kansas has passed is stating that they want to prevent religious individuals and organizations from getting sued – or punished – for not providing goods or services to gay couples - or for not recognizing the marriages or committed relationship as valid.
In other words, by claiming religious beliefs, you can fire a gay employee … you can deny a gay couple from dining at your restaurant … you can expel them from school … and if they try to sue you for discrimination, you will not only win your case, but you can make that gay individual or couple pay your court costs as well.
In other OTHER words, they are discriminating against the LGBT community by giving legal rights to religious groups who themselves, are discriminating.

I’m disgusted. I’ve lost my appetite. And I am now on Career Builder looking for jobs in another state. Call me a drama queen if you want … but I am NO LONGER  proud of this state I call "home".

Things you should NOT be doing over the age of 30

Unfortunately, we all get stuck in a hamster wheel of habit. We do things we shouldn’t and remain where we shouldn’t.

When you hit a certain age … we need to stop talking about things we SHOULD be doing, and instead talk about the things that we SHOULDN’T be doing. Here is my list...

Facebook, IMO.

It didn’t really happen if you didn’t post it on Facebook.

At least that’s what it seems like it’s come down to. A few months ago, I was having a nice conversation with a friend when she asked what I did the weekend before. I told her that my husband and I went to Kansas City for the weekend just the two of us. She didn’t believe me. She thought I had made it up because I never posted anything on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

This actually kind of made me mad. Ever since then … I’ve almost avoided the social media site like the plague only to "like" a few things by my personal infatuation … Disney. Because it truly makes me happy. And because I'm being a brat.
