> The reason I have persisted in abusing it and resisted stopping for years was that I was so convinced that it was medicating ADD, and addicted to the productivity it provided.

This I do not understand. Would it have made a difference if you were taking it for "ADD" or taking it for the motivational issues or taking it for social anxiety? Those are just symptoms, and if Dex helped the symptoms-what's the difference of the dx?

I don't see how thinking it was for one dx vs. the other would lead to a reason to abuse it. (???) It sounds as if it helped you cope with your issues regardless of the dx. Either way, the doctor who prescribed it was probably trying to help you with your symptoms. It just happened to be the wrong medication for you due to your tendency to abuse it, which likely could not have been predicted by your dr or you or both. I'm not sure how it is the fault of the diagnosis. Some people are just more prone to addiction than others.
