2. Well, I didn't spend any time in a hospital...
..but when I was six, I took almost half a year off from school because of severe depression. I was seriously messed up. I couldn't get through the day without having some sort of emotional breakdown in my first grade class.

I wasn't violent, just too sad to get along with anyone.
