When I was little I also had this kind of problem,it's really a hard time for me.I was kind of a loner but deep down in my heart I really want to communicate with others.That last for about 5 years really a painful time for me.So you really need to do something I believe you will finally make it.Good luck.

Well, basketball may be just waht he needs to find some friends. I have to say that I was painfully shy when I was a kid. I wouldn't talk to anyone and I wouldn't look at anyone. I managed to outgrow it and he likely will also. I know that you want to help him and that your heart asches for him but the best thing you can do, honesly, is just support himw and make sure that he knows you are there for him. If there is an arcade in town, perhaps you can take him there to shoot some hoops or play games. There are even some places that have gaming clubs that you might look into. Hope this helps. Good luck!
