When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

:cool:

Glad y'all enjoyed the quote. :mrgreen:

Seems highly relevant to recovering one's health and to Ray Peat's work.

Yes, I suspect a lot of us know that feeling, and after your minocycline and thyroid adventures, you may feel like you've clobbered that rock -- or perhaps it's clobbered you -- a few hundred times. :mrgreen:

But with each experiment you perform with your diet, sleep, activities, or supplements, you're learning more precisely where and how to pound the rock.
