It helps me, mentally. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being "not at all" and 10 being "spending time with my girlfriend", it's a solid 6 in that regard. But physically, hasn't done me a lot of good since I am still sick, and quite visibly so.
Since my plan was for bed and said girlfriend encouraged it, I'll try to get rest.
I do have a doctor's appointment, with my primary care physician. My mom will be going with me, since having family with you ALWAYS helps, but especially helps for someone who is autistic like me and thus, has difficulty really speaking up. I believe she even recorded the list of symptoms I ranted off about, too, so this will hopefully get me somewhere.
It's not until October 31st though, so I have to wait a week.
If things go as they have been, my sickness will be all too happy to make the appointment!
