Hello,
Thanks for your query.

I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.

Important aspects of your query are:
•     22 year old female
•     Known case of low BP
•     Complaints of: excessive weakness and inability to work.

Although we do not current BP but we can assume low bp as a cause for current symptoms as 80-60BP is very low and may lead to your current symptoms.

Even, with such low BP value person may fall due to dizziness while walking.

Common reason for low BP is poor fluid intake, diarrhoea, recurrent vomitting and severe infection.

You need to take following measures as soon as possible:
-Ask for help from family member or friend in this situation.
-Get you blood pressured monitored.
-Drink plenty of fluids like: ORS, Fruit juice, Dal water
-Do not remain hungry
-Vitamin supplement
-Consultation from Physician so that exact cause can be identified and treated.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
Regards,
