This week, my car battery died.
For two days it was a pain as I had no vehicle and had to get it replaced.
Not being a car guy, this was a lot of on-the-spot learning in how to do this.
What can I say, I get spooked when connecting high-voltage metal objects together.
I had a great teacher and in less than an hour I was back up and running.
Between it being broken and getting it fixed we boosted it, tried to give it a manual charge, all of those things you try to do.
In the end, all it needed was a new battery, a replacement.
I’m not 100% sure how the analogy with our own bodies works, sometimes you need a boost (a quick charge to get you over the hump in the short-term) but most other times, you need something more significant, like a complete replacement, to get you through the long-term and keep you going for what happens next.
