A Personal Computer for Demorion as a Healthy Outlet & Coping Mechanism

Posted Sep 28, 2023
Demorion struggles every day to manage his Type I diabetes. He tries to stay positive, but he sometimes feels embarrassed about having to manage his diabetes and doesn't enjoy the doctor's visits he has every other week. He loves to play video games and has been wanting a system of his own instead of using others to play on. His goal is to work in an IT department and he has dreams of becoming a "streamer" and making YouTube videos. He is very passionate about electronics and learning all about them, and a PC would be a healthy outlet/coping mechanism for him.

Demorion is 18 years old and lives in OH

Demorion has had many challenges in his life. He was living in a group home, and for two months, Demorion was in a hospital by himself most days because of complications with his diabetes. He now lives in a foster home with a foster mom who advocates tremendously for him and supports him. Being in foster care has been difficult for Demorion to adjust to. However, with the many services in place for him, he is improving more every day. Demorion has many different professionals on his treatment team to help him succeed. He can be a comedian, but here are tough days for Demorion; he is learning to trust his current support system and that people will stand by him.
