let’s change the world, one word at a time

hey you. welcome! i’m so glad you stopped by. way to much too say is a health and wellness blog dedicated to those battling addiction, eating disorders, chronic painmental health challenges or all of the above like me.

i’m a perfectionist who is perfectly flawed. i’m the definition of a beautiful disaster. and i needed a positive therapeutic outlet to channel my creativity.

this blog is based on the personal account of a girl (me) never thinking i was good enough, never being satisfied —always wanting more.

this is my alice and wonderland story of a good girl who wandered down the rabbit hole of life and messed up everything she worked hard for. after many failed attempts to get clean, paired with a whole lot of pain and suffering, i finally figured it out.

because sometimes, it takes getting everything you ever wanted, and then losing it, to know what true freedom is.

after taking a leap of faith (quite literally), i ascended from the depths of my own personal hell a.k.a. rock bottom and traveled my way back to the top. it was hard and far from pretty. it didn’t get easier. i just got stronger.

and along the way, i learned that the worst thing that happens to you, the thing you think you can’t survive, well —it’s the thing that makes you better than you ever used to be.


so walk with me, as i continue to travel down my own path of self-discovery and optimal health. because sometimes, you just don’t have the words, and i have way to much too say.

    Couldn’t find a stopping point reading through your blog posts. My heart hurts for the pain you have endured. But grateful that you are able to encourage others like me, turning pain into wisdom and knowledge to share. I frequently tell others “I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy…But I would also NEVER want to go back to the person I was before these experiences, being ignorant of the hurt others go through and live through daily…” You have earned the right to reach out and help heal others going through similar struggles. You have the gift of encouragement. Keep sharing Macey.

      hi jason. thank you sooo much. i remember starting my blog being nervous to share my story. bc i’ve been through a lot of darkness. but what i’ve learned since then is awkward honesty. bc it’s freeing. it’s been therapeutic for me at the same time and soooo rewarding to know someone found my words helpful. that’s why i started it. to turn my mess into a message as they say. this made my day, jason. i’m
      here if you need anything.

    Read your post on antidepressants, which I am experimenting with finally after years of depression and anxiety trying to find something that works. Your explanation of side effects, and of SSRI withdrawal symptoms was very helpful to me, as I just got off an SSRI onto another medication and was alarmed by some side effects I was having, thinking they were effects of my new medication, but are most likely withdrawal symptoms. Now I feel more comfortable continuing my new medicine and see if the symptoms die down in a few weeks. Then I started reading some of your other posts. Keep doing you! Thanks for the help!

      hi eddie. i’m so happy i was able to provide clarity. it can be scary to feel a certain type of way. especially when you don’t know where it’s coming from. i hope the new meds are helping. i’m here if you ever need to vent because i understand more than i can say.
