Pity your husband doesn't seem to understand the reality of your problem ; he seems to see your symptoms as a form of criticism of himself and his abilities - but I would have expected that a good psychologist, especially of the CBT form, and a good psychiatrist managing the medication side, shouldd have been able to help you regain control of these concerns. I would think the CBT would be most likely to be useful in this regard
