About This Show
Adulting is hard; live bravely.
We don't expect life to be so hard. Suffering is for other people. And then loss and disappointment knock us flat like a sucker punch. Join Becky L McCoy as her guests share their stories of hard moments in life and how they are choosing to live bravely and authentically. Get cozy with a cup of coffee or clean the house while you listen. Either way, join in and consider sharing your Sucker Punched story with us.

4 days ago
When Elli was diagnosed with postpartum depression, she realized she'd been struggling with anxiety and depression most of her adult life. "I just thought I was a really weak person because I wasn't able to cope." She was anxiety, paranoid, barely managing parenting, and having panic attacks. It wasn't until she started creating space in her schedule, anti-depression medication, counseling, exercise, and mediation that she finally started finding relief. In the dark place, Elli says, "you feel like a failure and that things are never going to get better, but those are both lies." Elli's Answers To The Fun Questions: • What are you loving right now? Peaky Blinders, Parks & Rec, and Catastrophe on TV. Wearing dungarees (overalls) and striped shirts • What’s your favorite food/meal/snack? Tapas and anything salty (olives and blue cheese) with red wine • What are you doing to take care of yourself? Canceling plans and scheduling a spa hair cut • What are you doing to be brave?
