I just woke up from 1 1/2 hours of napping. This is not unusual for me. Unfortunately you sound way too busy to ever get a good nap. I think the dehydration and loss of nutrients from diarrhea are a huge factor in stamina. All I can say is, try to squeeze in sleep whenever and wherever you can. If you're not already avoiding caffeine and alcohol, that might help too. (Caffeine makes you crash later and alcohol... well everyone knows how tired alcohol can make you.)
