I am an art painter too. I know how things can go. Just try to take life one day at a time. I am sure that your mother's condition is really affecting you. But that is something out of your control. Try to embrace it if you can. Spend time with her and realize that this is a natural process. Though we hate to lose our loved ones, it is her time and she will be going to a better place. I know that you will miss her, but you will have all of the fond memories. And I believe that they never really leave us. They stay in our hearts. Hopefully you will be able to accept this and keep going.
You are on the right track with your thinking and I do think that talking to your doctor is a good idea. And as Jordan said, I am also sure that you will feel better again soon.
