In a crowded Expo center full of people and animals you can hear a pin drop when Tony Buckley began to speak.

He was the first speaker at the forum on feeding and mental well-being. Former Munster and Ireland prop said as he played – he did not step back.

“For many years I suffered from deep depression, anxiety, panic disorder – all of this together to play professional Rugby. As my career comes to an end, I struggled, just go with the flow, don’t try to solve their problems.

“Another major stressor came into my life everything went to his head. The looming fodder crisis will be a major stressor for many people,” said Tony.

The stressor for Tony graduated from Rugby and worrying about the future and loss of income. And it was actually the fact that he was “not too worried” because he had a good education and was sorted.

“I was prepared for life after Rugby, but as soon as it came to quarrels inside, I freaked. Panic attacks began, the trouble began, I had no idea what was going on. I was breaking down crying. I told no one. I spill it all. I didn’t get help. I tried to do it myself, like it himself, he certainly did not work.

“At the end of the day, when push came to shove I had to trust the physician in the sale of the Rugby club and from that day, as I opened for him, everything turned upside down,” said Tony.

It was almost five years ago, and Tony completed their consultations on the day before the show.

“It was a very difficult time,” said he in a large crowd. Tony said the first thing to do if you are struggling and things are getting on top of you talk to your neighbor, friend, doctor or multiple telephone lines, such as Pieta house, aware, the Samaritans.

Tony said that a just fight.

“You say to yourself I’ll be great, everything will be fine, I’m fine, I’m not soft, keep plugging away. But as soon as a major stressor hits you and you struggle with some minor problems You will not be able to leave her.

“Unfortunately, when she will face, your thinking is flawed, You can’t function properly, you make wrong decisions and when you make bad decisions, that’s when the sleepless nights to come,” said Tony. When you are in this downward spiral you understand things differently because of flawed thinking, he said.

“I know a lot of people turn to alcohol and drugs. When you are there, don’t You think right in your own mind, you rationalizarea, what is the best option to overcome the pain you are in. It’s a horrible place to be I never thought that I would be there. I look at his face and, fortunately, I left at the right time, but I was very close to falling down these holes.”

Tony said it is a difficult path, but the first step is a conversation with someone.

Courage Rugby legends on the field no doubt, and his courage on the field of a farmer at Cappamore were greeted with applause akin to Thomond Park. Comrades praised him for helping to eliminate the stigma of mental health.
