Unlikely anemia: given your age and gender, assuming you are otherwise healthy. There are several reasons for being sleepy, the most common isn't getting enough good sleep to start with, sleep apnea can be a cause if you are overweight / obese, thyroid problems can be another. You may want to see your doctor for assessment, good luck
