As I'm sure you realize, this is not a good state of affairs, and your Depression has deteriorated to the point that proper assessment and treatment is more urgently needed and deserved.
Maybe its mainly that you're responding badly to current stresses.
See a NEw good psych for afull assessment and a discussion of treatment options. Hospital admission is rarely suggested unless there are good reasons relating to the starting of some treatments, or a clear need to help you to be better protected while things settle down.
Depending on the diagnosis, a number of meds can and should help. I don't know what sort of psychotherapy you had or for how long. But if it wasn't a cariation of CBT ( COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy ) I'd wonder whether it was of use. The old-fashioned Analytical style therapies take forever without any good scientific proof that they're really useful.
I'm worried about the treatments you desribe. For instance, I've never come across a situaion in which anyone actually needed up to 30 different pills a day - that doesn't sound like good care. Hypnotherapy is worse than useless with someone who cuts ( and in many other situations - as a single therapy rather than part of a combined plan, its often useless or worse ; and it does NOT reach any basic underlying issues that are relevant to your current state. It makes you so highly susceptible to suggestion, that you will recall and "find" whatever the hypnotist expects and wants to find.
If you have any form of dissociative disorder, then hypnosis is very strongly contraindicated and should not be used - the potential to make things much worse is far too high
get a fresh assessment from the best shrink you can reach, and discuss diagnosis and treatment options before choosing.
