GBS Analogy: Brownout/Blackout

This analogy came to mind yesterday. When you're recovering and you get to that point where your muscles start to fail and you can't go any further, this is like a brown out where there is too much demand on existing power lines (nerves) and your power starts to shut down. If you continue it becomes a black out situation where you collapse because there is no power left to give. If the system rests power is restored.
