I love art, though I can't draw much more than a stick figure myself ;)

As to grief, I'm sure you are aware that grief is a natural response, generally to an event involving a significant loss. If the grief and the grieving period are reasonable in proportion to the loss (and yes, reasonableness and proportion are wide open questions), then I would not think the grief involved is linked to a depressive disorder.

Put another way, I suffer from depression virtually every day of my life, except those several days each month when I pop into an almost different life at the other extreme. Can I still feel grief from a loss without that necessarily being considered a worsening facet of my underlying depression? Sure, though the grief circumstance may require a temporary adjustment in treatment to reflect added anxiety or a more serious low end to my spectrum during that time period.

I apologize if I did not recognize a discussion of grief you are experiencing. I sometimes wrongly assume that what's stated in the post I'm responding to sums up what's pertinent, not realizing that I may be joining a much longer or more-involved conversation than is reflected in just that one post.
