I've always thought "housewife" a rather odd term, as tyhough you were married to the house itself. Maybe it sometimes feels that way. But you can divorce a house, or at least arrange a separation, fairly easilty and cheaply !
Sel-help books are almost always helpful - to the people who write them and sell them. Not always to others, and they can at times make you feel worse.
Therapy could indeed help, preferably of the down-to-earth, practical ( and not everlasting ! ) CBT form - Sognitive-behaviour Therapy. And also isn't it possible for you to start brushing up your social skills and comfort by getting involved in hobbies, clubs, charities, and similar activity in which you could meet some nice people, in settings aimed at other purposes rather than just raw socializing ? As others say here, getting involved in community work, helping others who are in more difficult citcumstances than yours, is worthwhile,& reminds you that you have capabilities, too.
