1  General Community / Andy Talk / From 2005 to 2016!. on: November 16, 2016, 02:35 pm
11 years I've been a fan of Andy Murray, since he was 2 sets up against Nalbandian at Wimbledon I thought this guy is the future no.1. It's emotional seeing him fulfill his potential, his first ever title at San Jose to his first Masters, to his first Grandslam... He's had his ups and his downs but we have felt them too but we have always believed he could be the best!. This topic is just a memorable recognisation of the world's greatest. What is your lasting memory of the mighty Andy Murray and when did you first realise his no.1 potential? Smile

More from Andy's FB:

Really enjoyed a few days practice with my good friend Rafa Nadal in his hometown of Manacor, was great to finally see, and play some tennis at the Rafa Nadal Academy. It's an amazing site with some incredible facilities, great job!

letting it all hang out eh Rafael?.

Anyone who's into UFC, I'm a massive fan of Andy Murray since 2005 and now there is a personality of Conor Mcgregor, I think it deserves a topic. These personalities are rare so embrace the chaos of a Murray, Mcgregor etc. Why not?. w00t

When Andy has the determination and belief with no distractions, nobody can beat him. The way he played in DC all year would be a match for anyone even fed and djoker!. I predict a awesome 2016 for Andy if he stays determined and focused #sportspersonalityoftheyear2

Can't agree that it was a blip, chuck.  Andy's struggling a bit to get back on form - and I think that's to be expected and allowed.  Really hope he can stamp some authority on Raonic for his own self belief.
I agree, he needs his confidence back, he has been rusty since injury but yesterday was just lacksydaisy lol. We will see. I feel a murray best is just around the corner Wink.

Yesterday was a blip, he still managed to win and to be fair to andy it is easy to get complacent when you had such a easy start against someone who is less known, he know Roanic's threat and knows he can't be subdued, .it all depends on who wants it the most.     Murray in 3 Smile

What Murray needs is confidence and I believe beating a Djokovic, Nadal or Federer will be the perfect treatment for Andy. He will be back just have to be patient. Positive is on grass Murray will always be the guy to beat, like Nadal on clay he is feared on that surface. Patience is a virtue peeps. Smile

I like your positivity MM.  Like you I refused to accept the fact that I needed help with depression and anxiety, although I had been prepared to seek help for agoraphobia - probably because I was literally stuck in the one place - only in my case it went on for years until I eventually ended up in a psychiatric hospital for seven months, which wasn't a very pleasant experience.  I'm glad that you're getting therapy as well as medication, and I was put on Mirtazapine too three months ago because the drug I'd been taking ever since I was discharged from hoispital was no longer helping me, in fact it seemed to be making the episodes of depression occur more frequently.  It's still early days but I do feel that it's started to make a difference both with regard to anxiety and depression, so I hope it works for you.  Don't feel down-hearted though if you don't get results quickly because medication like this can take a while to completely kick in, or if you have to stay on this medication for a year or longer - that's perfectly normal and it doesn't mean that you're still 'ill', simply that you have to keep taking these drugs for a while after you're feeling better in order to avoid a recurrence of the original problem. 

I'm also glad that you've been able to realise just exactly who your true friends are because I experienced the same thing, and it's far better to have a handful of close friends who you know genuinely care about you, who understand your problem, and who you can trust, than a wide circle of people who are little more than acquaintances. Also you will come through this a stronger person because you'll have discovered your own inner strengths, and the fact that you already have the belief and the determination will make that a lot easier.
Amen to that! hit the nail on the head there Smile. You're right I would rather have 1 really good friend than loads of fake ones, it's about quality not quantity, Seems like you have had it tough but things can only get better, the only way is up as they say and when you have hit rock bottom you can't go any further down and that is why I am so positive cause I have the comfort of knowing I can now work from this and learn never to go back there, I have stopped drinking, stopped socializing and started working out more and I have found a new passion in dancing and I think if I didn't have this so called illness then that passion wouldn't of been there.

It's really good of you to comment Aileen and I hope you can reach your goals also, very best of luck Smile.

I'm truly sorry to hear that MM, and I can understand how you feel when your grandad says that to you, because the one thing that used to really upset me (it doesn't now - just makes me feel a bit irritated) was when family and friends said "Why can't you just go and do ... [whatever]", like they thought I was being awkward or stupid.

I do hope that you're getting help with this problem, either through medication or, preferably, some other form of therapy.  Drugs can certainly help in the short-term but they aren't the ultimate solution, and you're too young to let something like this affect your life.
yeah thanks Smile I have just started therapy and I am on mitazapene to calm my anxiety, they even put me on diazepan short term, I suppose to begin with I was stubborn and thought it was just a phase I was going through but truth is you definitely need help, I may have lost most of my friends but it made me think who was really there for us and who just used me, I have now accepted the fact that I am ill and if anything it as made me more determined to be a stronger person when I get better, belief is there and it has to be otherwise you go nowhere. Smile.

I'd say that that feeling is probably normal amongst people of your age, although unlike you, for years I wasn't afraid so much of dying myself as terrified of that happening to my parents and others very close to me.  Hopefully once you get older that fear will become less intense - and I use the word fear rather than phobia because true phobias can take over your whole life, if you let them, so if you feel that that is the case then I think you should have a word with your doc who might refer you for counselling.

I've suffered from agoraphobia for 20 years, as well as the depression which caused it in the first place and which was brought on by very stressful circumstances.  A popular misconception is that this is just a fear of open spaces, but the word itself comes from the Greek "fear of the market-place", and its defining feature is acute and irrational anxiety about being in places from which escape might be, or is perceived to be, embarrassing or difficult or in which help might be unavailable, and this anxiety frequently causes very unplesant panic attacks, so the sufferer does everything possible to avoid being in such situations, even to the extent of becoming completely housebound.

Fortunately with the help of a psychologist and anxiety-reducing medication, which I still have to take, I got over the housebound stage in six months and gradual progress was made from there until I was able to lead something near a 'normal' life.  That life though is very restricted.  I can't just hop on a bus or train and go anywhere I would like to go, so that rules out travel beyond the city boundaries, nor can I go to the cinema or a concert, or socialise where big gatherings of people are involved - and take me away from a main bus route and the feelings of panic begin to kick in pretty quickly, although in that respect I bless the invention of the mobile phone because I know that, if the worst comes to the worst, I can always call for a taxi, something which in itself is reassuring.  Unfortunately for me I soon reached an age where it became clear that further progress was extremely unlikely, so I've just had to learn to live with it and make the best of what I have got, i.e. good physical health and all my faculties.
You are not alone, I am suffering with a social anxiety disorder at the moment and I find it difficult to leave the house, the world seems so much bigger than what "normal people" associate as a small world, funny my grandad said for me to just calm down haha if only it was that easy, I have been practically housebound for the past 7 months, I know exactly what you have been through.

Perfect draw for murray... so glad he is playing nadal now than earlier on... alot of emotion goes into these type of matches earlier in the torurnament playing nadal would just drain murray and probably wouldn't make it as far.
