I am so glad to hear from you, you had me worried there for a few days where we didn't hear from you at all.
I hate hospitals too, since I have been hospitalized 3 times in the last 2 years.  But it is a safe place to be, for yourself and others.  My most recent hospitalizations were in December 2006 and less that 2 weeks later in early January 2007.  Trust me, that really sucked, being back in when I barely had my leg out the door.  But in the end, it all worked out.
You should try to call your pdoc or others on your Crisis List.  Try to follow your crisis plan, and if it does not work.  Then you have other options.
If you feel you need to go, then go there is no shame in that.  Yes, there are a few days where someone will tell you what to do, but it is for your own good.  By the time you come back out, it will be just a distant memory.
Best Wishes!  :-)
