Default Is the hospital really that bad?

Ive been told that, because of the unpredictability of my illness, at some point in my life... hospitalization might be necessary.

This idea scares me. I dont ever want to go to a hospital because that feels like giving up control of my life. Im still partially reliant on my parents- and until I move out for good (soon) I feel that hospitalization would just mean admitting to the world that Im not ready for my own life- and that I need a caretaker or something.

So. My questions are. Is the hospital really that bad? What is a stay generally like? How long do schizoaffectives generally stay compared to other people with other mental illnesses- longer? What have your experiences been with how people have treated you AFTER hospitalization?
