Sounds like you might still be wrestling with some of the later side-effects of coming of that tranquillizer adiction, as this task can take rather longer than most people expect it to. See a shrink for a re-assessment of the situation, and maybe if he thinks you might need some aid to tranquillity, try Buspirone, a slower onset and gentler tranquillizer to which people just dont get addicted.
If you are indeed Depressed, antidepressants can help a good deal, and they also often relieve the anxiety symptom, too.
Joining a support group should indeed be helpful, too.
And of course you will be able to have a normally satisfying and trusting relationship again, if you work on it. Counselling could be a key ingredient in this process.
