I'm feeling very low in energy. What do you do or did that helped counteract this? I feel very tired.

Take an iron pill or up your foods rich in iron. Also, eat something high in vitamin c while taking it/eating it to help it absorb better.
If you have a cast iron skillet, that will help you naturally to get more iron in your diet through the iron in the pan.

I've been having that problem lately. It's gotten to the point where I will sit down because I feel tired and will fall asleep without realizing it. I feel horrible!! I hate feeling so tired and out of it.
Recently I found out I was anemic and have started taking iron. So I'm hoping that the iron will make a difference. I can't keep falling asleep when I sit down.
