he says he never loved me?!

My husband, recently diagnosed with with depression and now on cilift 20mg. Cried uncontrollably last night and told me that the reason for his depression is that he never really really loved me. he says is caught up with him now, hence the depression. If i look back at our 7 yrs together I can not find any instances where I ever doubted his love, there weren''t ever any signs. In fact, he at some points, needed reassurance from me! I am heart broken, and I don''t know what to do about this. i suggested he gets proper medical help first and then only he should consider a divorce, but he refuses.
