Danny, I'm sorry that things are so difficult for you right now.  Did you just recently stop the Effexor?  The withdrawal from that can be quite unpleasant unless you do it very slowly.


Here is a sharepost written by Merely Me on how to get mental health treatment when you don't have insurance or the money.  I hope you can find something useful there.  If you think you might need a crisis line number to call, I can get you that, as well.


Thanks for reaching out here and please feel free to write again at any time.  This is a good place to come for support.  I wish you all the best.
