Allison, you are thinking a lot about suicide, that is a good reason to look into hospitalization. You and your therapist can get a consult at the hospital, ie see what they say about whether hospitalization might help you at this point. "Toughing it out" is not a good approach for you right now. You are clearly in crisis, with a TON of major stressors.
Partial hospitalization/day treatment means you don't stay in the hospital but you go every day (some people go 2 or 3 days a week either right from the start, or gradually) for intensive treatment--individual, group, job counseling, resource help,etc. It provides structure if you are having difficulty coping with life. I think it would be wise for you to see what a hospital might offer. I worry that your preoccupation with death and joining your mother is a major sign of risk. In any case--ONCE A WEEK THERAPY IS NOT ENOUGH RIGHT NOW, YOU ARE IN CRISIS. What you are talking about is what hospitalization is for. Not that it will be such a great experience (depends on the hospital) but it is to stabilize you so you can be well enough for outpatient treatment. Keep us posted.
