With kudos to Dr. Emily Gibson for writing this and Kevin, MD, for posting it here.
Here's are excerpts of the beginning and end portions:
I’m really miserable and need that 5 day antibiotic to get better faster.
Ninety eight percent of the time it is a viral infection and will resolve without antibiotics.

A real doctor will first do no harm. I wish you the best.
