    What did you do? Was it a good or bad experience? Did it help? Did you try and get out?

    Into a mental hospital? Yeah, I was 14 at the time. I never really felt so empty or worthless as I did at that time.

    I'm pretty sure I was surrounded by a few genuine psychopaths in there. Pretty creepy once you think about it. There were a few other, nicer people in there as well. It wasn't too bad, all in all. I was only in there for three days.

    And I swear I saw a girl I knew in there years later at a Gamestop. I should've said, "Hey." Oh well.

    Yep, I have been. It was pleasant, and I did try to get out after I was on the verge of being sent to a long-term state psych hospital. Wasn't particularly helpful for me, I'm afraid to say, but it gave me a lot of time to think about my situation and also try a couple of different prescribed medications. Oh, and getting to spend time with others who can relate to each other was fantastic.
