Sparkles, My low libido is a result of a whole host of shit. I think primarily it is the gabapentin and now the Cymbalta (as my mood is better all around but the libido thing is worse in the past few weeks) as both suppress desire and gabapentin interferes with orgasm. I work 70 hours a week. There is a shit ton of stress. We are working on marital problems; but this is going better thankfully. I am in peri-menopause and have issues with irregular cycles. AND my damn oldest daughter moved home so my hubby and I have like no freaking privacy. She is 23 and stays up to all hours and well...its awkward. I think if we got away alone for a week with no distractions, we would be fine. I agree that people should think about what the underlying cause is for them. It can be simple or it can be quite complicated.
Sleepy, I love my career in education. It was the best decision I ever made. It's long hours but it is your hours and so it is flexible. Teaching in health care depends on the area. Nursing has a real shortage nationwide; especially in specialties like OB. Most states want you to hold a degree one higher than what you teach. So if you teach undergrads, you need at least a Masters. Most real universities want PhD's. There is a lot of funding now for education so it might be affordable to do. Might be a great option for you!
On that note, I am off to grade!
