I want to encourage you not to see going to the hospital as a sign of weakness. It is a way to take care of yourself.

The therapy sounds interesting, but you seem so depressed and so at risk of making a bad decision about your own fate, that I think doing all of that deep, symbolic exploration should be postponed until you are less at risk. Putting your affairs in order is a scary sign, because you said that the loose ends was a deterrent for you to act on your suicide plans. It is definitely time to go into the hospital, and to get a consultation from a "second opinion" (which you will get in the hospital, I think, but if not, should seek out on an outpatient basis). There may be a different med combo that would work better, or ECT, as you say. Or maybe you are eligible for a study of a new drug or magnetic stimulation, etc. YOu need to be stabilized in a safer place before returning to all of the intrapsychic exploration that goes on in the therapy.
BTW, it would be great if the hospital had internet connection, so you could keep us posted. There is clearly a lot of concern for you here.
