Re: I Miss mY Eyelashes

Hi Lorraine,

I missed my eyelashes the most also!

My eyelashes only fell out in my right eye, the left ones thinned. Talk about looking goofy! I had little fallen eyelashes on my cheeks quite often. I used Latisse to hurry along the process, and I wore big hoop earrings to make myself feel better.

My license renewal came up because we moved and I had to have a new photo taken, I had my wig on, no right eyelashes and you can see my neck was burned from radiation since the picture was taken at the end of my radiation. So I probably have the worst license picture on the to just laugh!!!
