I have suffered with it and only as I approach my 4th year of my first breast cancer diagnosis I can feel it starting to lift.
Its like a lock of hair which has been curled, slowly, slowly being pulled down until it is straightened out again.
At last I feel as though I am starting to function again.
The fog is lifting and I can see the sun peeking through at last.
I suppose it "came" to me this week while I have been alone that I need now to focus on my future.... to come up with some new plans and find a way of achieving them.
Its an exciting time but its also unnerving.... can I do it? will I fail?
But I have to make that jump..... I didn't particularly like the chapter in the book of my life but its safe, its well read and the pages are familiar.... closing that chapter and starting on a new one is going to be a challenge.
To end this post lets listen to Mike Peters perform his song "New Chapter" performed at Wrexham in front of me on 1st November 2012
