I'm young (21) so I can't really give sage advice or anything..I'm pretty much typing whatever pops into my head that I think might help. But...that said..

I think there's the assumption that you have to fix yourself **before** anything good can happen--good relationship, before you can become a good parent, etc. I don't think thats true. We are all imperfect, struggling, somewhat damaged people.Everyone. So...maybe you don't have to be perfectly happy or well-adjusted to have a kid. Or start a relationship. I'm not saying these things will help you, necessarily, but sometimes continuing on with life is healing in and of itself...plus, don't forget "the healing tincture of time". Love heals, relationships heal, life itself helps us heal/adjust.

I think mental hospitals really aren't that great. And if you're going off psych meds anyway, I think it might be counter-productive. Intensive outpatient therapy might help. So might the passage of time.
