Ever met a PC geek? I am not talking about the pros that are hired on the geek squad to go out and help folks with PC Problems; I am talking about a geek that sits in a room filled with PC equipment and runs his life. My sister’s boy fits into this category. In a lot of ways his life is a bit sad and in others he's a bit frightful. He used to be a ordinary healthy child who developed a serious case of acne when he was fourteen.
He was so embarrassed and self conscious about the acne that he started talking with others in bulletin boards rather than facing them. Thru this he spent a good deal of time on PCs and found he had great PC abilities. He commenced earning off the internet by age eighteen and essentially lived his life in his parent’s cellar.
My sister knows that I am a specialist and so she asked if I would intervene with her child. He claims to be satisfied with his life; however he spends almost no time outside of the basement. My child, his cousin, is the same age. My son has invited him to many activities through the years, but he is always turned down.
I told my sister that I believed the key was to begin with the acne scar removal and to work from there. It was the acne that caused him to go into his shell in the first place so I presumed this wanted to be address. If he would go thru the acne scar removal then he may gain the confidence to face folks and begin to live a more normal life. He was intensely successful at earning money on the internet.
At the age of 20 he was making over 5,000 dollars a month. My sister wanted him to enjoy spending his cash off the internet and out of the basement. I told my sister that as well as organizing the acne scar removal she should also let him know that he wanted to move out of the cellar. Driving him to find a different place to live would help him have new surroundings around people. He could afford an apartment or to buy a home of his own if he wished.
My nephew was extremely upset when he was told that he needed to move. He agreed to go to the appointment to talk about the acne scar removal, but he contended this wasn't why he spent time alone. One he started the laser procedures on his face he was a different person. His skin improve seriously and so did his self esteem. He's still working on the internet and doing very well; however also he is socializing and getting out more.
