Too tired for sex
I think i need help now. I love sex, my hubby is the best lover. I love him dearly.....But i am just too tired for sex. I work, get home, cook, see to the children, by the time he touches me., i' m gone, fast asleep. Please can someone just tell me what i can use to have some energy, coz i need to get my sex life together before it' s too late.

It sounds like you need to possibly try several options: 1) get a good vitamin to help with your workload; 2) consider how you reduce the work-related stress; 3) check out whether your husband is able to help out any with the cooking/kids (you need to make sure you are not holding on to 'mom' duties due to guilt - you can't be expected to do it all); 4) prioritise couple time, even if only once in a while - get a babysitter. Unfortunately there is no magic pill; you only have so much energy and the rest is up to you to make choices/compromises...
