    Silly problem, maybe, but it's bothering my co-worker. She is a nice lady in her mid 50s and has noticed that her eyelashes are thinning out. The right eye (her right, not mine) actually has little gaps, where the eyelash isn't growing out. She doesn't want to do the false eyelashes thing. Are there any homeopathic or natural remedies? I know there's some prescription thing for it, but what about the side effects? I told her I'd let her know tomorrow if you all had any ideas.

    My hair in general is thinning out, but not really my lashes. I don't think there is much that can be done, other than either the prescription you mentioned or false eyelashes-I've never worn them, either, and don't even know how to put them on.


    Queen Elizabeth I allegedly had all of her eyebrows and lashes fall out, but even if she was butt-ugly, all the men in England had to pretend she was the most beautiful woman in the world, or lose their heads.

    So I tell my co-worker to bring a machete to work?

    You can't stop it, I hate it.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    There is a prescription med for that.


    My coworker announced the minute she walked through the door that she had just gotten botox. She wasn't puffy and didn't look any differently than yesterday. She said it takes a week or so before the wrinkles above her nose fade a way. She also got her forehead done.


    Seriously, if I ever get something done, I would not announce it to anyone. It would be my secret.

    You are far too young for that.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Isn't that super expensive? (My coworker is in the midst of a divorce and she's worried about money. Personally, I think that's why her eyelashes are falling out, but that's just conjecture.)
