I think you probably are having alternator issues. You can have it tested at most any auto parts store.

Before the last couple days when it was just dieing out so, someone thought my fuel pump or fuel filer was bad, is that another issue or could my altenator be causing both? Until today when it ran weird it wouldnt actually die but it would start slowing down and then once I downshifted and pushed the gas againit would act like it was getting power again!

It is probably all the same issue. If your alternator isn't putting out enough current it can cause all of those issues.
