"I get mist that comes down, I call it a mist. It might as well be a brick wall…" Ellen
 “I can just see every detail but numbers, I wouldn't be able to. It's like a haze...” Bradley
 “...I just don’t know where to start. I’ve got an inkling of the things you should do, but then I look at it and I just can’t do it...you get a shutter thing come down in the mind. It’s just “can’t do that”. Fiona
