my son is a recluse and i dont know what to do. he was a gorgeous outgoing kid with so many friends but then at secondary school (age 14+) he was bullied at school and one by one lost all of his friends and with that his confidence. i took him out of school because i didnt want him to be miserable. at 17 years old he went to college but left pretty quickly and ever since then, for five years to be exact, he has sat in his bedroom isolated from the world. the only time he goes out is with me. he wont even go to the barbers to get his hair cut without me. if this continues his future looks so bleak and i dont know how to change this situation. i see him as an old man with nobody after i have gone and i cant bare the thought of it. he was skinny up untill 16 years old but now gradually he has become obese, his appearance is terrible and this doesnt help his confidence at all! but he wont join a gym. it feels like he wont make any effort to change his life. what can i do?
