    can't find a way around / can find no way around ?

    And even without that unwelcome and vivid fear in my mind,
    I can't find any way around the horror of being left alone down there in the dark,
    picked apart by processes about which I'm a little bit squeamish
    even when they're just fertilizing my daylilies. Intellectually, I know it won't matter to me in the slightest.


    What do you mean by "can't find any way around" in the above sentence?
    Help me, please!

    It means that the author cannot ignore/dismiss/discount the horror...
