Photoshop CC 2019 Select and Mask workspace won't allow painting on an already-existing mask. 
This started after I updated to Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6. Here's what I've done:

The OS update required a reboot. So that's been done.
I reset the selection tool from the main screen (that option is dimmed from inside S&M).
I disabled the Graphics Processor, then restarted Photoshop.

I haven't had this much trouble with software since my idiot ex-boyfriend bought a Gateway computer in the late 90s. Getting real tired of this crap.

Thanks to "JC," for their reply to someone else's issue. The problem was I had Show Original checked. In my defense, this was accidental, as the P shortcut is right next to the left bracket [, which I use to make the brush size smaller.
