Gorgeous! It was so wonderful to hear your story. I see you too. I had not really faced autoimmunity before I turned 40. I mean I just said oh fine whatever I suppose I inherited them. I did have a horrible bout when I was 20 but after that passed, until everything started crashing I did not really deal with it. Now I live and love life consciously, knowing and taking care of my body and cherishing joys like what beautiful bling could bring me! Congrats to you and stay well and safe!
Hi Sunstorm,
What a gorgeous yellow pear:kiss2:
Sorry to hear that you also battle with AI.
It definitely does make one grateful for days of good health and feeling “normal”. I hope that you continue to feel well!

Gorgeous ❤ Happy 25th anniversary and happy 50th birthday!

I totally understand what you went through/going through re AI diseases. You explained it perfectly. Glad you got the diagnoses and are finding relief.

I wish you good health and blingy joy.
(((Hugs))).
Hi Missy!
So nice to “see” you.
Sorry to hear that you are familiar with AI diseases. I hope you are feeling well and having a nice summer. Wishing you good health and blingy joy as well.:wavey:

Hi Maita13,
Thank you
Sorry to hear that you are familiar with AI diseases too, I hope that you are enjoying good health now.
Where does the time go? When you’re sleep deprived and drowning in laundry and diapers, you can’t even imagine being an empty nester, but it happens so quickly. Too quickly:(
Thank you for your words of encouragement!

Thank you LLJsmom!
Time flies by so quickly! Hard to believe I’m 50 with grown children. Now I’m ready for grandkids! You should see the look my 21 year old daughter gives me when I say that lol. Hope that you and your family are doing well!

Congratulations, @iluvcarats! Speaking as someone who has battled AI all her adult life, and whose heart and spine has taken the brunt of the assault, I hear you! I turned 60 this year, and nobody will ever know how hard I had to fight for that 6th decade - a milestone neither of my parents achieved.

So - again - CONGRATULATIONS! And 25 years of marriage is no mean feat either! So I'm glad everyone took some time to celebrate you.

Your pieces are, as always, flawless. I recall your Van Craeynest ring and bangle being the first pieces I added when I started the PriceScope Hall of Fame thread - and that was no accident. Your jewels are always of the highest quality, the most beautiful workmanship, and are worn with an elegance most of us can only strive to emulate.

So thank you for setting such a wonderfully high bar and for sharing these gorgeous pieces with us: simply wonderful!

Hi mrs-b :)
Sounds like you have had more than your share of AI. Sounds like you have battled long and hard, which is exhausting, but that you currently have the upper hand. One thing is for sure; once you have an AID, having a good day means so much more than it used to. I wish you good health and happiness in the future.

I was so surprised ( and flattered) when I saw those pieces in your Hall of Fame. I still enjoy them both, and I’m so glad that you like them too. I appreciate your kind words more than you know. <3
