Sounds like a situation that calls for Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) ! And for re-assesment by your shrink, as it sounds as though the Depression may have returned and needs further treatment ( and CBT should be par of that treatment ). The counsellor could also help you work out a more effective way of dealing with the financial and work-related problems.
Maybe your husband is right that you really don't need to earn money --- why do you feel driven to do so ? An expression of independence ? Or what ? Maybe you could volunteer and lend your excellent experience to some charities / NGOs who really need such asistance. And still be ready to leap on any business opportunities that may turn up on the way. The profound lack of motivation could well be depression-related, so real with the Depression, and set to work on all those other worthwhile activities. The self-help books ultimaely leave it all to you -- a counsellor could help press you towards doing what you undertake to do, and working your way out of the depression
