Question Why do i seek/crave more meds when i'm upset or stressed!

I've been on stimulants for ADD for 13 years. I was on adderall and currently on vyvanse.
I started taking my script more than prescribed 7 years ago because they wore off too soon.
now its just a mess of a probelm but one thing I realized is whenever I feel or experience a negative emotion like getting upset/overwhelmed/fight with parents or boyfriend I seek/crave/ take more of my meds even though it doesn't do anything??
I find that I even take more when I'm say bored at work which doesn't make sense because if theres nothing to do/focus on then I'm wasting it!
please some one help me get some sanity back while I try to deal with how to control my usage of my medication and find a therapist!
Strattera 40mg as of September 2018 -Vyvanse 50mg for over a year, & klonapin 1mg Previous: adderall ir 10mg & XR (been on both for over a decade)
Cymbalta 60mg
ADD, Major Depression Disorder, Anxiety, Panic Disorder
Past medications: almost every SSRI
