Re: Cabinets glued to wall?
Anything is possible, especially in a DIY situation. The cabinets may have been glued to the wall, even thought this is not a standard operating procedure, you won't know until you get them off. What is more likely is that the paint wasn't fully cured when the cabinets were installed and they are stuck in the paint. Either way you're probably going to have some wall damage to repair before you continue with your project.
As for getting the cabinets down, find the studs in the wall and slip a flat bar behind the cabinets in these locations. Also, pry against a small block of wood so that you have less chance of damaging the drywall with your efforts. One last thing, if you're working by yourself, put the top screws back into the cabinets, but leave them slightly loose, you don't want the cabinet falling before you're ready for it. Having a second set of hands to help wouldn't be a bad idea either.
