ROY was everything to dear Chloe and Billy,
We could write about the lessons and virtues
And how he taught them right from wrong.
And instilled in his kids the values
That one day would make them strong.


ROY taught them to face their fears,
And take each day as it comes,
For there are things that we cannot change.
And he would always say what is done is done.

ROY , we will not immortalize you in the stars as they fade away,
Or in a poem as it will be forgotten one day,
We will save the memories in our heartbeats,so it lives on in us everyday.

WE would like to pay tribute ,
To a man who always liked to contribute
He had a heart of gold, and a great family in Laura, Chloe and Billy to behold,
Andrew Symonds, was fondly known as ‘ROY’ around his world.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

We cannot say this last point loudly enough: YOU ARE NOT ALONE in experiencing anxiety.

Living with it does not always mean having a good time, but there are plenty of ways to learn to cope – rather than expending all your energy on fighting it.

So make use of the tools mentioned here. Reach out to a friend. Talk to a professional if you need to. As we said: YOU ARE NOT ALONE……...

How do I help someone with anxiety?

There is a lot you can do if you are worried about another guy. Reaching out to him is one of the best things you can do, so if you are sensing something’s not right, let him know you’ve got his back. Push through the awkwardness or discomfort – it will be worth it.

We also know that is not necessarily an easy conversation, which is why we have got some great resources for having conversations about mental health. We even have a tool called Movember Conversations with loads of tips for how to go about it .

It is not uncommon, so if you think this could be you, it is time to chat with a healthcare professional. Book an appointment with your doctor or, if you have access to one, a psychologist or psychiatrist. These professionals can help with diagnoses and treatment plans that commonly involve counselling and/or medication, among other things.

Get connected

Putting your hand up to ask for help is a no-brainer. These things are always better out than in and getting help to declutter some of this stuff is the quickest way to being your old self again.

If the way you are feeling is starting to affect your life, then consider talking it out with a counsellor. They are armed with advice and practical tips that can declutter your mind. However, if you experience enduring, severe anxiety that interferes with day-to-day life, you may have an anxiety disorder, also called Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

Get social

How is this for a contradiction: social interaction can sometimes cause anxiety, but ironically, it can also relieve it. Meeting (face-to-face or online) with friends that know you well, so you can just be yourself, can help reduce stress, anxiety and depression. However, if that is not practical, or if a big social occasion feels like too much, then consider something small scale. Even seeing one friend for lunch or coffee can make a big difference.

Get moving

Exercise is good for your mental health. We all know that. But we do not always make time to smash it out. While a solid gym session or round of boxing can do wonders, a light jog or even a steady walk can take your mind off things and help with stress release. Sleep – another part of your life that anxiety could be taking a toll on – can also be improved with getting that heart rate up.

At its most severe, anxiety symptoms can include feelings of extreme dread and doom, chest or stomach pains, and even panic attacks and hyperventilating.

What can I do about my anxiety?

Anxiety does not go away on its own. ‘Burying’ those feelings or hoping they will disappear often does not achieve the desired effect. Here are some ways to help you take control.

Committing to a decision feels like you are bearing the weight of the world.
You really just need to be left alone or ‘hide’. Often. Beyond just normal downtime.
You might spend too much time escaping in social media, gaming, junk food, porn, gambling, drugs or alcohol.
You often feel irritable, snappy or down.
You are often physically tired or feeling worn out.

Anxiety left unchecked will often spread into different parts of your life. Where it started with public speaking, a dinner with friends might suddenly evoke the same feelings. These might include situations like these:

You cannot sleep at night from stress or worry. Even small things set you off.
You try to chill out but you can’t stop ‘overthinking’ things.

What does anxiety feel like? What are the symptoms?

The feeling that we experience as anxiety is in fact your body’s way of responding to a perceived threat. It stems from a really useful fight or flight response ingrained in our biology from the caveman days. This causes chemicals like cortisol to rush through us when we perceive a threat, so that we can get ready to act… however, it might not be as useful today in a shopping mall. Unfortunately, it’s not pleasant, and this translates into intense feelings of stress, worry and fear.

What causes anxiety?

It’s tough to say. Anxiety can be brought on by many things, and it varies from guy to guy. Uncertainty and trying to rehearse for every possible situation before a date can trigger it in some. For others, a big change like a new job, becoming a dad or even anticipating an extended holiday that’s meant to be fun can also bring it on. And for others, it can hit in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason. The list goes on and the responses vary, but as all the self-help gurus tell us, acceptance is the first step.

What is anxiety?

When mental health professionals talk about anxiety, they’re referring to feelings of stress and worry. These might start as fleeting thoughts but can spread into the body and become so intense and ongoing that they interfere with daily living.

For perspective, whereas that 'on edge' feeling before a stressful event can come and go, anxiety can stop you from sleeping, eating and concentrating for weeks on end. Unlike short-term worry, anxiety can be long-lasting, overwhelming, and at its worst, make the future feel real bleak.

Key Points

Men have a higher rate of suicide and are way less likely to reach out for support.

Opening up to your friends can help both you and them. The more comfortable we get with checking in on one another, the healthier we’ll all be.

Serious conversations can be tough. Try chatting while doing something else, learn to ask the right questions and know when to listen.

Watch out for the signs of depression or anxiety. If you’re worried, suggest that your friend reaches out for professional help.

It's totally normal to talk. Going a bit deeper in conversation can be intimidating. By being the first to open up, you take the first bat at breaking down tired, old stereotypes. Here's how you can start conversations that reshape ideas of what it means to be a man.

How the stigma hurts us all. Outdated societal expectations have taught men that seeking help is not an option. It's a problem that sees more men turn to drug or alcohol abuse-and even suicide. Yet one we can change with better understanding.

Bottom line: stigmatising mental health hurts everyone. The good news, though, is that stigma is slowly losing its grip. Millennials are twice as likely to talk openly about their mental health as Baby Boomers.

Stigmatising mental health hurts everyone

Honestly, it can be hard for anyone to talk about their mental health. We’re bombarded with negative media stereotypes of people with mental health issues as dangerous, unstable or violent.

People of any gender can worry that being open with their struggles might threaten their job or cost them a promotion. Others face pressure from families who view mental health issues as a source of shame, rather than a diagnosable, treatable condition.

Many of us have built our identities on being solid, steady providers for our families, and it’s easy to believe that opening up about your mental health will put all that in jeopardy. Others worry about losing face with their peers – bosses, co-workers, mates.

5 Week(s) Ago

Combine all that stigma with outdated ideas of what it means to be a man, and the barriers to opening up about mental health are formidable.

Many men, especially older men, were taught from an early age not to cry or show emotion, that doing so was a sign of weakness. Some feel constant pressure to appear ‘tough’ and equate ‘strength’ with ‘having it all together.’

5 Week(s) Ago

Professional pressure: while many workplaces have made great strides in supporting mental health care, historically opening up about depression or anxiety in the workplace could cost a person their job.

Personal pressure: all that cultural and professional stigma gets internalised , convincing us that there is something deeply ‘wrong’ inside.

Why men have a hard time talking about mental health

Stigma is a powerful force. Men in particular feel pressure on all fronts to keep quiet about their mental health:

Cultural pressure: some communities or societies stigmatise talking about mental health or seeking professional support.

Key Points

Men are just as likely as anyone to struggle with their mental health, but less likely to get the help they need.

It’s important to recognise the signs of mental health issues, which can sometimes be different for men compared to others.

There are some important steps you can take to take the stigma out of mental health conversations with men.

How to reach a mate who's struggling

You know when a friend isn't quite right. His words say one thing, but his interactions, enthusiasm or appearance say another. Getting through can be tricky, but Movember Conversations lets you practice those important talks.

Developed by mental health experts, it guides you through typical scenarios and offers prompts and responses that help open up real, meaningful conversations.

My 2022 MO Stache is inspired by MOVEMBER and what it stands for and the fight against the 2 main cancers in men namely Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer with the MO symbolising crab claws (symbol of Cancer in the zodiac) with a heart in the middle to symbolise Mental illness and Suicide Prevention .
