I believe that you should trust your intuition on this.

BUT -- please consider doing outpatient therapy. My own therapist convinced me against hospitalization for a 'nervous breakdown' by telling me that there is _no_ evidence that people heal faster in the hospital. She also painted a bleak picture of a boring stay with little recreation than a small 'day room' with one tv.

Unless you are dangerous to yourself or others, the best way to heal from mental illness -- in general -- is to do normalizing activities and participate in life. Participating in an outpatient program will let you hang on to your 'normalcy' while (hopefully) getting the help you need.
