Oh My God!!!
I know that they are you parents and that you love them!! But do these people have any idea what LUPUS is?? Have they spent any time at all trying to learn about your disease and its symptoms?? I mean, it never ceases to amaze me how selfish and uncaring people can become!!
The fact that you went out, over exerted yourself, and buried that cable anyway amazes me!! I don't even have the strength to think about doing that type of chore!!!
It was their idea to come over and help and then all they did was get angry at you because of what you HAVE NOT done!! And then, to tell you to never call them again!!! That is extraordinary to me! Especially the part about no one believing that you are sick!!
These people need to be educated about your disease, its symptoms, your medications and their side effects. Until that happens, I don't know that you will ever be able to count on them for support.
Try not to push yourself too hard, you may find that you are doing more damage than good. Because of the nature of our disease, you must give yourself productive rest periods and you must take care of yourself. It sounds as if your children are willing to help you, allow them to do that (even if they do not do things absolutely perfect, praise them for their willingness to help)!
I wish you the best of luck, and remember, we are here to provide you with support, understanding and compassion.
Take Very Good Care Of Yourself
