Many thanks for your kind words, Georgia Mrkvicka Westphal. I’m glad to hear mine gave you a nudge to get back to the page.
The fog you mention is very familiar to me and hard to break out of. Not only did it take me years but it occasionally returns, especially when I’m exhausted and anxious about meeting my commitments (tonight is one such night).
The trick is to be patient with yourself and keep trying anyway, because you will eventually get there. Progress doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a series of tiny steps forward that add up over time.
You can and will get there.
