It's a Question I keep Asking Myself.....
The question you ask......."Am I an Artist or Just Playing One"? I want to be, I thought I used to be, but am I still? Or rather, was I ever? Are you confused yet? Well, join the crowd! I am so confused as to whether I am an artist or I just play at being o...

Penny, I took some ideas from this site I thought might be applicable to your question.  Oh, if only they could help.  http://fictionwriting.about.com/od/writingroadblocks/tp/block.htm
The possible reasons for creator's block are myriad: fear, anxiety, a life change, the end of a project, the beginning of a project... almost anything, it seems, can cause that debilitating feeling of fear and frustration.
You have been going through a heck of a lot these past couple years. A wedding you worked hard on, a trying job assignment, awful neck/back pain, empty nest and feeling of loss, a personality conflict and maybe more.  Those are enough to emotionally drain creativity.

Implement a time to do art … schedule.  
* Show up even if nothing comes right away. When your body shows up, at the same time you have scheduled, eventually your mind — and your muse — will do the same.
* Don't Be Too Hard on Yourself.
In fact, don’t be hard on yourself at all while doing your art. ” Turn the critical brain off. There is a time and place for criticism: it’s called editing.
* Idleness can be a key part of the creative process. Give yourself time to gather new experiences and new ideas, from life, reading, or other forms of art, before you start again.
* Set Deadlines and Keep Them.
* Examine Deep-Seated Issues Behind Your Block.
Write about your anxieties regarding creativity. Talk to a friend, preferably one who does the same kind of art.
* Work on More Than One Project at a Time.
Some find it helpful to switch back and forth from one project to another.
* Try art exercises in your area.
Exercises can loosen up the mind and get you to do you would never do otherwise.
* Remember Why You Started art in the First Place.
* Are you doing what you love or think you should love.  Maybe something new.
