    I can not understand the meaning of this sentence.

    Hello, I'm new here and I'm glad I found this forum!

    As the title says... I can not understand the meaning of the following sentence (especially bolded one).

    "I wasn't strong enough to go on without the blanketing numb fog that surrounded me since I'd woken up after that night."

    Re: I can not understand the meaning of this sentence.

    The bold phrase means: ...to continue without (the feeling of) being wrapped in a comforting, numbing fog... Does that help? You first need to understand how 'fog' is being used as a metaphor.

    Re: I can not understand the meaning of this sentence.

    Welcome to the forum, Kiteo.

    In future, please state the source and author of your quoted text.

    Also, please note that a better title would have been to go on without the blanketing numb fog.
