Are you totally exhausted and yet still keep on going? Do you keep trying one thing, and then another, and the another, past the point of exhaustion? You are very good at coping with things, and never doubt your strength or endurance, but you keep on carrying on.
The Oak state is where you are working steadily step by step, never giving up until they reach their goal, relying on their tremendous strength and solidity to keep them going through every adversity. Which can be considered a great strength, but in the Oak state, their determination can lead them to over extend their physical strength when they get too fixed on their plodding progress.
Taking the remedy Oak will set you on an even keel where you can see the need to rest now and again.

They fight on, and are discontent with themselves if illness interferes with their duties or helping others.

There is no need to fight your worries, or struggle with your diseases, or grapple with your difficulties, rather forget all about them by concentrating on the virtue required to counteract your faults.
