I have this ‘flu like’ viral infection.
It’s not a flu, I’m not completely out,
but get tired easily, and sleep a lot.
Paracetamol makes fever, and joint-pain and lack of appetite
fade to background … but not always. I often wait too long between doses,
just to see whether it is going better already, or not.
I want to do something more intelligent than read the online news.
Lying down, and passively watching or reading works fine.
But I recognise how this little illness slows down and even limits mental capacity.
Not consciousness itself, … consciousness is …
Mental capacity is easily disturbed when things go difficult.
Inner resistance creates a feeling of anger, blaming the writers
of the how to documentation that I tried to follow.
Is it the anger that limits my mental capacity?
Is it my resistance against illness that limits my mental capacities?
Shouldn’t I just slow down a little,
also for activities involving the brain?
Wouldn’t it work if I do this thing more slowly?
One step at a time?
I’ll give it another try
in a couple of minutes.
