Nice Eyelashes!

Recommended Posts

I don't exaggerate when I say I have long eyelashes. They are really long. They used to be very think and obvious when I was a child and teen but now they are just long and thin. I also find it in the way when I'm wearing sunglasses and I have to wear sunglasses a lot because I have VERY sensitive eyes. I wonder if the long eyelashes and sensitive eyes thing go together... :huh:

As for the nail thing, my nails were always soft and in an awful state before going gluten-free. This is one of the significant changes I had after gluten-free because they are now hard and long for the first time in my life. I still get the big ridges and occational dents. My nails are also spoon shaped. I heard that is not normal? :blink:

I am anemic too.


Gluten intolerant - self diagnosed 2007 (not willing to do gluten challenge) and anemic

no dairy, soy, legumes, eggs, sugar, chocolate

no baked and processed foods (also gluten-free bakery) and high GI (due to hypoglycemia)

enjoy brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa and polenta instead

neurological symptoms flare up when glutened and in times of stress

following paleo diet, lots of raw fruit and veg, omega 3 oils, nuts

I feel heathy and able to function for the first time in my life. Thank God.

Organic food gives a great advantage.

Kefir rules!

What do "spoon-shaped" nails look like? I've not heard that term before.

Ditto on the eyelash thing. I wear my glasses midway down my nose for that very reason. And I have to be careful with mascara too otherwise I end up with black freckles along the brow bone. As for nails...I've only had nails if I paid for them. (once or twice just to see what it was like) mine peel away like an onion, bend really easy and I have ridges and awful cuticles.

Hi, I am new to the forum. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac disease yet but I believe that I have it. I noticed the topic about eyelashes and my eyelashes have always been really long, thick, and curly as well. Ever since I was a baby people always noticed them.

They aren't laughing at you. They're envious! ;) Have you thought of getting a job as a male model?

I always had long, thick eyelashes. But I've just noticed a couple of days ago, that suddenly my lashes are quite short! I always had trouble with my lashes hitting my glasses, but now I feel weird for having such short lashes. Very strange, I wonder why this is happening. I am just glad that my hair hasn't started falling out, too. I have very thick hair, that is still auburn with very few grey hairs (which you can't even notice, really, people just assume I must be dyeing it, like everybody else my age).

Count me in as a long-eyelash girl! It's the glasses touching that bothers me, I have sensitive eyes and wear sunglasses even when other's aren't!

Agree with the other poster. These girls who say this are trying to give you a compliment and an opening line. Sometimes girls can be as awkward and clumsy when they want to talk to someone as a guy. Try to think of a 'witty' response that can get the conversation moving. :)

My eyelashes are long and thick too. I can squint if I need sunglasses :lol:

Before going gluten free, my nail moons were very visible. My nail moons are all but gone now, not sure where they went :lol:

Those moons are natural, and a good sign of nail health as I understand it. A sublingual methylcobalamin (B12) supplement should help with nails, as it does many conditions. Nutritionists examine a patients nails when they look for a deficiency in B12.
