The feeling of anxiety can be part of a depression or of itself.
Not sure if your husband feels the same way? Sometimes men also feel the same anxiety and depression as their partners but may handle it differently.
It would be good to see your GP again to review where things are up to. Apart from talking to a Psychologist or Counsellor it may be helpful to review if there is a family history of anxiety or depression.
Getting a blood test to check hormones among other things may be helpful. Social support, exercise and lifestyle measures [especially sleep] and time for self pursuits and connecting with your husband and friends are also important.
Most of all there is help for this. So please reach out to a caring health professional like your GP to get started.
It is good to keep a mood chart. I suggest my patients do this twice a day [breakfast and dinner time]. You can download one from the Black Dog Institute website. There are 2 there. One for Unipolar Depression which is only on a positive scale. The other is a Bipolar Depression scale which has a negative, middle and a high range. Often if the mood fluctuates quickly and often, it doesn't hurt to use the Bipolar one just to see the fluctuations. It doesn't mean you have BIpolar. If it really swings more than you thought than show it to your GP.
