Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I have hesitated to say but Dean has still not left his comfort zone but he did have a scared straight moment as a result of a school meeting. At the meeting he presented zero eye contact that resulted in the attendance officer to contact government social services to investigate if he is getting correct treatment.
A new shrink was arranged along with new medication. When the social worker asked him questions he was very communicative with limited eye contact. He also was presented with options from his retiring doctor that included electro shock therapy. He snapped out of it for a short time.

I still identify the internet as a villain who has robbed him of eye contact and an addiction that prevents real world exploration.
If screen time eliminates 200 opportunities a day to make real eye contact it adds up day by day until eye contact is alien and feels impossible. btw he has grown a remarkable 7 inches this year and in no way is he a tiny Tim anymore.
