I rarely get sick but when I do its a cold or sinus infection and will go away on it own over 2 or 3 weeks. My girlfriend is similar but from the second day sore throat she is going in to see the doctor and getting prescriptions. Her dad isn't retired and he's covering her with his insurance and my dad retired and I don't have coverage so over the past three years of college if I got sick I learned to tough it out and not go to the doctor or emergency for financial reasons. My mom is similar to me as well and never goes to the doctor while dad does often. So just out of curiosity which type of person are you?

I rarely ever go to the doctor, and I basically refuse to take meds (for I'm not quite sure why dumb reason) unless it's necessary. I'll even stick out a massive headache over taking pain relievers lol. So definitely if it's just a cold or a stuffy nose or sore throat I'll just let my body handle it.0

The ability to know whether you should go to see a physician or sweated out is not easily acquired.. Colds and sinus infections are the easy ones as most colds are caused by viruses. The doctor can only prescribe symptomatic relief which you can get over-the-counter. Sinus infections a little bit harder but if you're spitting up green or yellow stuff see a doctor. Now the problem really is if you take that ability and move it into the area of serious problems you really need to see a physician. However too many people think they can sweat out chest pain, pain in the lower back, burning when you urinate discharge from the vagina and a host of other symptoms.. Women go to see a physician far more often than men and I believe that is why so many men show up dead in the emergency room0
