I too experience all that unfortunately through time my lost my ability to hold a job. Went through years of being called worthless. I don't know what advice I could give and be strong for yourself. It's the high school mentality that seems to block understanding. Keep your chin up and know, they are not half as strong as you

Dont push yourself because when you do you will flare more and more severly. Sounds like you may have fibromyalgia on top of lupus. Have your rheumatologist test you for that. I am now disabled after pushing myself for years and ended up in the hospital several times every year for the past five years. I am slowly accepting my limitations. I have SLE, fibromyalgia, connective tissue disease, sleep apnea, migraines and chronic fatigue. Sending you hugs!
