> I've been invited to spend a few days on the psych ward over the past decade -- call them offers I couldn't refuse.
I, too, have had offers that I could not refuse. Perhaps it was the generous offer or maybe it was just the handcuffs, who remembers?
Anyway, I've been hospitalized three times. Once when I was 16 (1986) for two weeks and the environment was very therapeutic. The staff was intelligent and kind.
The last two times weren't helpful at all. I've never been to jail but I suspect that the conditions are similar.
