I use hysterical all the time. I'm a mentally ill woman, it does not bother me in the least. I feel that it accurately describes a reaction (losing control of one's emotions), and although it does have the aforementioned sexist and abelist undertones, it's not a word that is [often] actively used to discriminated against women and mentally ill people.
