Loss & Grief in times of COVID - 19
There is a predominant emotion of intense grief felt by those who have lost a loved one, but at times also by people with no personal tragedy.

Confusional states are disturbed states of mind, when one cannot accept hated parts of the self. These parts are then split off from our conscious minds, creating a chronic inability to differentiate between reality and phantasy.
These kinds of confusion have their base in the very first conflict between the impulses of love and hate, towards one's earliest relationship, that have not been resolved and cannot be resolved.
