Can you see the gap in the middle?
Yesterday, was a laze around the house day, watching last season's 13 episodes of Damages with Glenn Close. So no makeup was necessary. However, today I dressed and put on full-face makeup to go to some friends. . . .and noticed a space between my lower eye lashes. Upon further investigation, I discovered some stumps on the upper eye lid.
My eyebrows and eye lashes had thinned about the 4th chemo which was 6 weeks ago. No biggie, I could fill them in with cosmetics. Revlon's Fash Fantasy has been wonderful in minimizing the loss up to now. But without the eye lash, no covering up now!
The skin around my eyes and on my face has aged at least 10 years with chemo. The skin on my hands has thinned and it is a challenge to keep them hydrated. Papercuts go deep on the paper-thin skin.
This rates right up there with the loss of my hair.
Speaking of hair, I have more growth . . .on the legs and the head. Why couldn't the eye lashes stay and the hair on the legs not return. Or, how about the hair on my face? That could have stayed away! But oh no (said sarcastically), my eyelashes had to fall out now. I guess it could be worse.
But it rates right up there with the loss of my hair.
Here is a link to a picture of the eyes and you can see some of the hair growth. Yes the eyes are a little red, they had tears in them before the picture was snapped. The "fullness" of the hair isn't even - mostly the top is filling in. Sort of looks like a Chia pet.
I guess it could be worse.
So how is YOUR day going?
