I don't mean to sound like a mother hen here but please be careful of the caffeine pills. Lupus and many of the autoimmune diseases can cause damage to the heart, high blood pressure and and tons of other organ damage. Caffeine pills have also been shown to cause damage to the heart, high blood pressure and several other issues. You don't want to "help" whatever is happening in your body by accidentally causing harm and weakening some organ that will make it more susceptible to damage later.
I understand that you are living with severe fatigue and I know how frustrating that is. Talk to your doctor and see if he/she can give you something for it. Trying to medicate ourselves can be a dangerous thing especially as they start treatment with other meds.
Not jumping on you! Just concerned
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
You've pointed some good things out there, i've read what alot can do but you don't seem to take it in.
I smoke 15 fags a day and i know i should'nt but i find they help with my depression but i'm terrible for cappaccino's, so i'll have to carm them down and stick to my tea more.
