Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am sorry that you are having this issue with your husband. So basically your husband has a low sex drive or inferiority issue because he believes he does not make enough money? Have either of you considered undergoing Couple's Therapy?
Well the best way to approach your husband would be to express your unhappiness, but not with the money as that is what he is most insecure about, but just with your sex life. Try to tell him that you just want to be with him and only him, and that making a lot of money does not factor in your attraction with him. No matter what you say though will probably not automatically change his mind as there are deeper issues involved, but he needs to undergo individual and possibly couples therapy, so try to tell him that you want to support and be there for him during this process. Encourage him to undergo treatment to deal with these issues, as you cannot change him, he must decide to help himself and overcome these issues with treatment. Showing your support for him and that you want to stand by him during this process is the best that you can do, but the decision and the effort into treatment is entirely up to him.

I saw that you posted another question regarding your original question. I am still here as I stated before and I can converse with you in this format, but I am unable to provide a phone call
I am very sorry that you have experienced this much adversity, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. Did you read what I wrote in regards ***** ***** to approach your husband and do you have any questions about it?
Most likely you used the medication to help numb the pain and escape from your depression.
I am sorry that you have suffered with these adversities, I cannot imagine how hard this has been for you. May I ask though what exactly is your mental health question that you would like an answer to regarding this?
A little bit, but not much. I do not play many video games
Thank you for your questions. Unfortunately I cannot tell you why he chose this path as I have never interviewed, nor can I read his mind. But nevertheless the reason why does not matter instead you must focus on the fact that he is doing this. If he will not make the effort to be accountable and help resolve these issues than you are correct therapy will not be helpful as it takes a great amount of effort for both participants to truly overcome these issues. As for the name of the behavior, I cannot officially diagnose your husband without a face to face evaluation, but it sounds like he could be demonstrating narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), where he has a lack of empathy, fails to take responsibility for his own actions, grandiose, selfish, etc...Therapy may be able to help, but like I said only if he puts in the effort towards treatment.
It is hard to say because some people do this because of a fantasy and other people may have a deep seeded issue with gender dysphoria (unhappy with their own gender). Without talking to him, I cannot say for sure
Hello, I noticed that you viewed my answer and I was checking in to see if you have any further questions or concerns that you would like me to address on this issue?
