Where to go when you can't take care of yourself anymore due to a mental illness?

It's sad to say that I'm only 22 and unable to function like most of society. Not to mention that I'm on disability for mental illness. I have no job, no further education, and no friends. I struggle everyday to do things like showering, eating, cooking, etc. I find myself in bed or on the couch all day everyday, and when I do try to get things done I feel exhausted. I have issues with going outside and being around people, only leaving the house to go to appointments then I come right back home. I have been hospitalized recently for a suicide attempt but they discharged me thinking that I'm better now. Well I'm not even close. I don't know where to go or what to do at this point, I tried to make a routine so that I could force myself to do things but that didn't work either. I really want a job and friends again but I can't even talk to people anymore without shaking and panicking. I did benefit from the hospital but they tend to not take people with borderline personality disorder because apparently it's bad for us. I still feel very suicidal and I don't know where to go. I've thought about going to more group meetings but because of my hatred towards myself and the way I look I can't be in a room of people without feeling sick to my stomach. I need help but I only see a therapist once a week and group therapy once a week, and nothing has helped me so far. I am on medications too and I haven't noticed a difference yet. Please help me, any advice would be useful.
