Some questions about adderall.

I recently started on adderall for ADD-type issues, and I've got some questions about the effects it's having. I intend to bring them up with my psychiatrist when I see him next, but that won't be for a few weeks and I think it would still be valuable to get some outside perspective, especially from people with first-hand experience. A lot of this has to do with sexuality. Questions and details within. A bit long-winded. [more inside]

Could/should I find the man whose psychosis was directed at me?

About a decade ago I started University in the UK. Towards the end of my first year a friend I made began to become paranoid. His behaviour towards me was particularly troubling, and eventually rumours circulated that he had been institutionalised. I have always wondered what happened to him, and if he is OK. My concerns linger these many years later, but tracking him down online has achieved nothing. Is there any way I can find out if everything turned out alright for him, preferably without causing too many ripples? [more inside]

I just admitted to my therapist that I've been cutting. What happens now?

OK. I just admitted to my therapist that I have been cutting and having some dark thoughts. He was about to go into a session when he answered my page. He's calling me back later and we have an appt scheduled for Monday. I'm not in any immediate danger FYI but I'm very worried and anxious what actions might be taken. He said he thought a conversation between him and my psychiatrist was in order, and I agreed to that. I've read the questions about "I told my therapist I want to kill myself, will I get committed" and there is some useful info there. But I want even further specific information about what comes next. What am I in for? What should I expect? Will this change the therapy dynamic? He knows I'm a past cutter but I have always assured him it is in the past. Now I've admitted to six weeks of lies by ommission. What happens now? I've never told anyone about this, and I'm a little freaked.
