I don't have a quick answer for you that will solve your problems.

As for the downturn in your medical practice, you don't say anything about what might be causing it - whether it is a change in how you deal with people, or some change in the local economy.

Your loss of libido is fairly common at your age, but I would suggest you see your own doctor for a thorough medical.

The only suggestion I have for the problem of your wife being angry with you about the past is that you both go to a marriage counselor to get help talking about it.
