he cheated on my once about 3 years ago and now I think he is cheating on my again because of his attitude towards me and the kids, I have confronted him about it and i just get a look. So i dont know if that is the cause... also i have alot of other stress to handle aswell, could this be a reason for m low sex driver?

Maybe you need a couple of testosterone injections...will help to spice everything up again. Not sure how long it will last though Charldene...maybe something from the past bugging you (him)??
