Help!! (Sex question)

I need some advice. Hubby and I don't have the best sex life and it's mostly my fault. I have a drive however every night about 8pm I'm so tired I don't want to do anything but go to bed. We also have 3 kids. 2 of which are asleep by 8:30 but my 4yo daughter is an insomniac. She can stay up until midnight every night. And that's with no nap and laying in her bed staring at the ceiling talking to herself. I have hypothyroidism, PCOS and endometriosis and am on several meds. I made an appt with my OB but are there any natural ways to help give me a little energy? I've tried caffeine, caffeine pills, 5 hour energy (extra strength) and nothing has worked. I work full time and also go to school 2 nights a week and on Saturday. My 2 4yo's are both Autistic and very demanding. So it's like I'm literally worn out. I try to stay up with him but I'm sure its no fun doing anything with a zombie.

Have you tried getting up a half hour earlier? setting your alarm and both of you getting up and getting freshened up then going at it? lol. You have to make time to get back into it and it will feel like work at first but they suggest doing it every day as many days in a row as you can(preferably 30 at least) to get back into the intimacy. Its hard for me too. but he's the one with a low libido so mine takes a huge drop as well. we can go for a month without (have gone longer)

Me and my dh had the same problem except in reverse. What if you laid down and you hubby stayed up while you took a nap?

I don't really know of anything that would help, but the caffeine is NOT a good idea because it makes you crash at the end of the day...

Once I fall asleep I'm out until I hear the alarm. I'm really cranky if I get woken up.

Put down the two at 830 and then you lay down for an hour or so. Just enough to get a little rest and don't feel bad. It's not like you are asking him to stay up all night with them.

True. I'm also going to talk to my daughter's ped about something to help her. She's been an insomniac since she was a baby. It's really frustrating sometimes.
