can not being properly medicated inhibit necessary spiritual practices? I feel that expressing my beliefs, and living up to them, are nigh impossible due to organic disorders not being treated. ( adhd, anxiety, depression, etc...)

I think so.
I had tried to meditate for years.
I have found meditation the most effective treatment for my ADHD, but I could NEVER have slowed down long enough to even start without stimulants.
It helps to think of these things as being all part of a bigger whole.

I think that this is true. Before the medication I found it very difficult to think positive and be more thankful for my assets. Being able to focus and reflect on my actions has made it much easier to remember to do the things that positively contribute to my spirituality...
