>My feeling is that I probably was not numb, like on klonopin.

In that case it probably wouldn't be a bad thing to restart. High doses of Effexor are more likely to cause numb feelings or fatigue, but you weren't taking much at all.

>And I do believe it is not just withdrawals but return of symptoms.

In that case, I think you should consider taking the minimum dose of Effexor that works well for you, based on past experience.

>I have not been doing any therapy or developing coping skills like in AA. I think sometimes the reason I do not do these things is because the med is making me feel better and thus I use it as a crutch instead of doing some therapy or AA.

Do you think you need to do AA or therapy? You might do, I don't know. Perhaps your recent experience should be a trigger to help you decide? Maybe get some advice from your doctor or a referral.
