I’ve had cold and flu type symptoms for a week or so and it’s really debilitating. The recommendation is to rest, drink fluids and it’ll pass. The difficulty is that life goes on and it feels like I should be doing something.
The something is, obviously, rest and drink fluids. That doesn’t feel enough though. It’s too passive.
Why does the need to be active to fix something, percolate a lot of how we live and work?
