You describe this so well that I feel as though I am right there with you. Medications certainly disrupt your emotions. They interfere with the way you are used to reacting, and build a whole new world, one that you may not be as comfortable in. Heck, I'm still waiting for one of my moods to hit so I can de junk and deep clean my house. It used to be a mood would hit and I'd have super charged non stop energy that I could use till I dropped, but no more. I have to intentionally plan and work within that plan, which is a new way of doing things for me. The emotional state you talk of as Buddhist, is similar to what I have experienced through whole hearted healing. http://www.peakstates.com/WHHlaypeople.html
I identify with everything you said, even though I use different labels. Thanks for sharing. It helps to have a strong sense of right and wrong that will carry you through your dark time, somewhere you can lean when you lose trust in your own judgement, and hang on till it passes. You are used to achieving that state through meditation, but if that isn't working for you right now, you may need to try a different approach.

Have you ever wondered why medication and meditation are so close? I don't believe it is right to use one to achieve the other. Perhaps it would help to discuss?
