close to 4 years later I am very aware of depression, what causes it and how to deal with depressive episodes. When I look back on my usage of Adderall I really did use it to cope with depression. I really did feel like it solved my depression issues early in my usage. When I quit I experienced a prolonged and extreme depression. I eventually emerged. Ultimately some tasks like taxes, work email are just painful without adderall... you just learn to plow through them. This takes time and practice. Motivation is a question of passion for me. I need to love a task to be motivated. Not every task is loveable tho so you just get through it.
