I really need these next two days off. I have been a funk lately and I know it is due to working too many hours. The stress I have been putting myself through is no longer acceptable. I need to take breaks. And recharge. And have alone time. And feel all the emotions that happen. To realize this is tough for me but it is also important because I need to be kind to myself and allow myself the time needed to recharge and heal 💕 #ICanDoAllThings#SelfLove#MentalHealth#BeGentle#MyBestSelf#StormsOfLife#Advocate

Another Famous Celeb who struggled with dyslexia. READ about her advocacy 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾📰
While most famous for playing Phoebe Halliwell in the popular TV series Charmed, Alyssa Milano has had her share of success.
Milano broke out into the acting scene at an early age, when she was on Broadway at age eight. Soon after, she starred alongside Tony Danza in Who’s the Boss?, establishing her success in the world of acting.
But all of her success was very difficult for her to achieve. Milano is dyslexic, and for her, memorizing lines and reading scripts hasn’t always come easy.
Though she struggled with reading early in her acting career, Milano credits British thespian Sir John Gielglud for helping her overcome her learning disability.
"When I asked him how he memorized his monologues, he said, 'I write them down,'" Milano recalled in 2003. "I use that method to this day. It not only familiarizes me with my words, it makes them my own."
Milano is also active in promoting awareness for dyslexia, as she has used her #Twitter account to post links about tips to detect and cope with dyslexia.

Saturday 20 October 2018 we shed happy, joyful tears. I hadn’t done that in a little while.
It's taken a long time to be able to smile while talking about my experiences as a victim of bullying. Time does heal but you never forget. Becoming an ambassador and advocate for bullying organizations and helping others was the first thing I did to help turn my negative experience into a better one. Was honored to attend the OKTV STARS STRIKE 4 FUNDS CELEBRITY BOWLING TOURNAMENT with @boo2bullying over the weekend. Remember to be kind always and THINK before you speak.
Happy 7th Birthday my baby Matthew! Crying 😭 just looking through all his pictures. So many memories. Seven years have passed just like that. We love 💕 you so much!! It has been a HECK of a journey and as a family we have STRIVED together!! Matthew was born two months early and by c-section. He cried when he was born. Grandma witnessed it cause I was out. We only heard Matthew cry less than five times when he was an infant. He was born in El Paso, Texas. He was diagnosed with #PWS at one month. He was in #NICU for almost two months. They would only release him if he had a G-tube inserted cause he wasn’t thriving. We left the hospital not knowing a lot. We took him home in a angel car seat with a heart monitor. Not in a traditional car seat. We had to special order it. It was the only way he’d be released. He couldn’t sit upright due to his low muscle tone. Matthew started therapy at a very early age. Lots of tears.
We drove home through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. It was a 14 hour drive. You better believe it on our way home we had connected with PWS Association, Regional Center, Specialist, Insurance and so much more that I can’t even recall. This is my short version! It was cray cray!! Now we are here seven years later. My little man is THRIVING and works hard. You are so loving and kind. You my child are a GIFT from GOD! Sweet baby Matthew God’s work is not DONE!! We love you to the moon and back!! .
It’s a new week, new month and new goals! Walking you to school is one of my biggest joys! Baby boy you are my why!! We have worked hard and it’s paying off! You my son inspire me! Thank you Jesus!! 🙌🏼💪🏼😍❤️ #BeBrave

#8 of 52 - Wednesday was Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day. Here I am, scars and all.
I had a double mastectomy in March 2016 where tissue expanders were immediately inserted to create space for my eventual implants. After 2 more reconstructive surgeries my implants failed and I had to scrap the implants completely and take stomach tissue to create breasts - the diep flap. Fast forward 1.5 years from my last surgery I’m starting to love my body again. I am a different kind of strong now. I appreciate my body for taking such a toll over the last 3 years and fighting for me to still be here. My scars are part of my story.
The reconstruction process was one of the hardest parts of my cancer treatment, both physically and emotionally. I had only about 3 weeks to fill the expanders because I did chemo first then surgery and I had to get to radiation asap. The fill process was way more painful than I was expecting (and again, this is only bc we had to do it so fast). I may have described it as torture 😕. Then when the implants eventually failed after my exchange surgery I was devastated and lived with a hole for a couple of months until I could get a surgery date for the diep flap. That last surgery was tough and a long recovery but I’m thrilled that I have new, healthy skin on my chest.
Reconstruction is emotionally hard because you aren’t dealing with the cancer anymore. There were times I felt guilty or vain for wanting to do more surgery but in the end, I know I made the right decision for me.
Idk what was in my water this morning (it’s usually @nuunhydration) but I loved every second of my long run this week. Ended up with a random half marathon PR and straight up look like a grinning goober (with a serious breakfast belly) before, during and afterwards. I can’t believe @nycmarathon is only 2 weeks away! The #tapercrazies seem to be just setting in, as I realize that this will be the last long run out on this trail for awhile
I remember signing up for a 5 miler last winter and thinking I’d never make it past that distance. I remember running 10 miles and thinking I’d never be able to go any further. I remember running a half marathon and thinking that could be my limit. And now here I am running strong for 14 miles (yea, I actually ran the whole thing - that’s a big deal for me). So it turns out my limit doesn’t exist. I’m looking at you, 26.2 #refusetoquit#runningaftercancer .
