Repeated eyelash loss

Finished chemo 8 months ago  A few months later I lost my lashes and a week later there was a little fuzz and all back in a month. Then 2 weeks running on a Saturday I wore false eyelashes over my good lashes and they disappeared. Been behaving and yesterday as I put mascara on (which I always wear) and saw a gap  geez it looks like they're migrating again.. Has anyone else had several losses? I know it's not a 3rd world problem but it would be interesting to know. Because I have bare beady eyes without makeup I use a Kohl pencil on my waterline top and bottom with a smudgy line on my eyelid nearest the missing lashes. Gets me by

    I have heard of two sheddings happening so it's possible it may happen again, I guess.  I've been very sparing with the mascara since mine grew back as I don't want to be too harsh with them.  I tend to rely more on eyeliner as I did during chemo.

    Mine shred 3 times. Now 18 months later I have extensions & they seem to be staying put.
