You gotta tell the truth, that's the only way anybody can help you. How do you know you'll go to a psychiatric hospital? As long as you're not planing on hurting yourself or someone else you can just say no.
Heck, for all you know you might be able to get those little free sample packs from whoever was prescribing your medication, I've done that before.

I am sorry to hear that you had to go through so much pain. As always there is a way out. Following are few suggestions which you may try out.
1. Speak your heart out with your counselor and don't have any secret suppressed. Psychic counselors are pretty good at their job and the best way to solve your problem is to explain your state in detail.
2. It is important for you to have a good part time job in hand so that you could fund yourself.
3. Speak about your problem with your near or dear ones (parent, friends, cousins) as they may lend you a helping hand by listening to your or give you some financial sustenance till you get well.

All the best!!!
