    If and only if you've been hopspitalized for mental illness, what are your views on hospitalization?

    Though I resented being hospitalized at first, I later realized that being hospitalized only benefited me because I was not functioning in my life--I couldn't even cook for myself and so many other things that I love doing or needed to do.

    What's your viewpoint?
