First of all I want to welcome you to the forum,I am very glad that you found us and I am sure you will find the support that you are looking for.
Once you have entered the deepest part of depression,I do not think that you are able to get out on your own.
You need help,and asking for help is not a bad thing..as everyone needs help sometimes.
My question is are you only on Effexor? Have you thought about
adding another med? Just until you get back on your feet again?
Also,I am a firm believer that you have to look at your environment. That you can only get better if your environment changes.
And,in order to get better you have to face and deal with what caused the depression and the attempt in the first place.
You need regular counseling. I know it is hard,and sometimes it basically sucks. But you have to get out of that dark hole.
Lean on your family and ask for more help.
Please stay strong and keep us posted.
