Countertransference

I’m restlessly sitting here at the nursing home, wearing a mask, between seeing my regular caseload of residents. Thankfully, there are still no COVID-19 cases at this facility. My residents are significantly more anxious, as well as depressed, these days.

My own 90-year-old mother is again back in the hospital, and I can’t even go to see her right now. I have no doubt that she, too, is feeling more anxious and depressed today. At least I was able to speak with her this morning. I’m having a very difficult time with feeling emotionally up to seeing any more residents today, given this current condition.
