Seeing as absolutely everyone misread the /hikki/ rules sticky and used it to draw apocalyptic conclusions about the death of all that was good about /n/, here's a less flippant sticky with less room for ambiguity, in the form of a Q&A. We've also made some concessions based on your feedback in thread >>13, which was moved to /sugg/ for being meta.

What is allowed on this board? What is its purpose?
On this board you can discuss and request or give advice regarding NEETism, Hikikomoriism, anxieties and social or mental issues arising from these conditions of living, and things closely related to these topics. If you're content with being a NEET at this stage in your life, that's ok, and you won't get in trouble for saying so. The board's primary focus is self-help and advice regarding these issues, and particularly help in escaping the NEET lifestyle, but this focus is not exclusive. Despite rumors, threads looking for help with suicidal feelings or drug addition are also allowed.

What is not allowed on this board?
* Encouraging others to become NEET.
* Attacking or discouraging others for being NEET.
* Giving or requesting advice on how to enter the NEET lifestyle.
* Encouraging or showcasing drug usage.
* Announcing your planned suicide. Call a hotline or something just don't do it here or it becomes my legal responsibility.
* Helping others to plan or commit suicide.
* Topics not related to the purpose of the board. Such topics will be moved.
* Intentionally breaking these rules or the global rules will still result in a warning or ban.
* Rule 6 is enforced more liberally on /hikki/. Users may be banned from /hikki/ for inflammatory remarks in cases which might not result in a ban on other boards.

I used to post here before but stopped after living a normal lifestyle, for a while atleast. I got fired and I've been jobless for like months now. My previous motivation to work on my personal projects and illustrations have all since diminished. I feel only apathy when playing games or watching stuff like I used to enjoy. Nowadays I just constantly press f5 on various image boards to pass time and listen to songs I've heard countless of times before already. Then I remembered this place and feel like I should share this here.

Please feel free to share your current situation here so we can feel alone togehter or some gay shit.

I've started slowly working towards living a normal life. Recently started speaking to a psych and it's nice to finally just have someone to speak to about what goes on in my head. Getting outside a little bit more every week and it's starting to get easier but I don't feel too comfortable yet.

Tonight has been the first really shitty one in a few weeks, can't stop thinking about all of the time wasted sitting in my room with nothing to show for it. Really feel like I've wasted an important part of my youth and just upset I didn't get to experience highschool. I feel so far behind all of my friends that I still speak to online.

Just have to keep telling myself that my situation can only improve as long as I keep pushing forward.

I'm conflicted, I graduate this academic year and I'm getting closer and closer to the inevitably of signing an enlistment packet for the Army. I scored well enough on the ASVAB to qualify for the jobs I wanted in Reconnaissance & Intelligence, but due to a hospitalization during middle school and a history of being prescribed antidepressants, that path is unlikely due to their requirement of a mandatory FBI level background check for anyone interested in those sectors.

My goal now is to just find a way to get an MOS that would translate well into the job sector that would also allow me to complete some online college courses during the contract. If all else fails, I'll just enlist as an infantryman.

Got my first job at a convenience store, ended up quitting month and a half in. Pay was shit, above my country's min wage (that's 4 USD a day, I got paid like 8 USD a day) but that's not saying much. Basically found out 8 hours six days a week is a long fucking time and that I can't stand dealing with customers, there wasn't any incident fortunately but I got really tired of them. At the end of the day when I got home and had dinner I ended up doing nothing until I hit the bed. Sometimes I ended up working different shifts, which fucked with my sleep a bit. I basically didn't have any communication with anyone during that period, which didn't help at all. These past weeks I'm still feeling shitty, I'm not eating normally and I basically spend all day slacking doing nothing, just drifting on chans and sadpanda sessions, like not even vidya or anime. Funny, since when I was working I was only thinking "All this time I spend working I could be learning how to draw or Japanese or guitar or *fucking anything* else right now" and now I can't be arsed to do anything at all. I've barely gone outside for a while now too. At least I've got uni to look forward to, but even then I don't know what the fuck I'm going to do about it. My father is already worrying I might end up going full NEET.

So you have the choice of being unhappy and making no money or being unhappy and actually getting something from it. Did you drop out of school or something? Why can't you get a better job?

Feeling suicidal right now. I have what my doctor calls major clinical depression and I also have some drug addiction. I've been living the neet life this year because I dropped out of school to be on medication. I feel like I'm only going to college in the first place so people don't yell at me.
I don't think I've posted here in years. I'm a wreck right now because one of my friends who has used this site from time to time died of drug overdose recently.
None of my friends seem to like me anymore and everyone I've cared about seems to hate me now. I have no motivation. I feel dead inside. All I want is to not be alone but I can't seem to alleviate that.
I've just been sitting here listening to sad piano music crying for an hour or so. I don't know what to do.
I'm a giant waste of potential no one cares about and I'm only getting older from here.
I can't function without antidepressants anymore. Nonstop suicidal thoughts all day everyday. I got back on them this week because I was going crazy again. I live in constant fear that I'm just going to snap one day. When I'm off my meds I have impulses to kill myself and my brain tells me exactly how to do it. It bothers me that I could end my life in less than a minute at all times.
I really don't know what to do.
I'm probaby never going to kill myself I'm just stuck in a constant state of my mind telling me to.

ya I know all this already, it's hard to tell that I do sometimes. I fall into what I call are "depression holes" where I am overwhelmed in despair and am incapable of feeling good about anything. I was that way last night when I posted this.

I miss the NEET life I had…

> Current life in an apartment with girlfriend

> Have a job

But I'm still not happy. I feel I don't have enough free time. If I'm not working I have too little time left to sit down and actually enjoy a game, and when I don't do that I have to invest time in my relationship, and when I'm not even doing that, I have responsibilities to take care of.

Even if I have a job, I do NOT have money for myself, at all. When I was a NEET all my money and time was only for me, myself, and I. I don`t wanna go to work, I wanna sit down on my ass and make games and play games, but this lifestlye is long gone, no longer available. I regret some life decisions I made, I really, really wish I could still be a NEET.

Best scenario would be: Keeping my gf, become a NEET again, but this is clearly impossible.

Have you ever experienced regret from no longer being a NEET?

It's funny how well this connects with another thread where some guy brags about how he improved his life and left neetdom. Thanks for taking the time in your busy schedule to visit here despite the possibility of, "slipping into old habits". Honestly, keep the job, loose the girl. What's the point of some nagging nuisance who probably asks you to buy things and only puts out when she feels like it like she's doing you some kind of inconvenient favor. Your job may take a lot of time, but domestic time is golden and shouldn't be wasted on something that you don't enjoy. Can you seriously see yourself marrying her and being tied down for the decades to come? Imagine if you want a divorce. Think of all the money that will be taken from you.

hi /n/, im curious about the NEETdom and wondering if you could answer some questions?

how long have you been a NEET?
was there a reason for you becoming a NEET?
what do you do all day?
what form of social interaction do you have, online and offline?
how often do you get outside, if at all?
do you live independently or with parents?

i do live on my own but i rely on my dad to do it because i cant afford to

i do get money from somewhere but of course it is not enough. i am a computer programmer making minimum wage. (there are like 3 programming jobs in the town i live in tbh. it was fucking competitive to get into my job making minimum wage; i was at the top of my (crappy) class easily) i dont blow all my money on stupid stuff and i couldnt afford to because then id be evicted anyway. ive been saving almost every dollar i got since i was a teenager in a little hidden compartment in my closet because i thought i would need it in the future

i have a crappy community college education with actual real crappy teachers (actual quote: "i was a programmer for a year at {this company} but i hated it so i quit to teach") who would 'teach' by reading us powerpoint presentations directly like they were brain dead idiots. i hated attending because of this but it was the only school my dad would pay for despite all attempts to explain to him how shit it was and of course there was literally no way i would go to any other school because how am i going to afford it even with my meager "life savings" and everyone discouraging me from going

also i appreciate that you would say anything at all but i dont care much for your condescending and lecturing attitude as though i could have fixed everything by deciding to be born to better parents or something. i KNOW my life is a huge fuck up i dont need people to tell me that over and over it doesnt make me feel good about myself and it sure doesnt fix my problems. i KNOW mental illness runs in my family. i KNOW i was cheated out of opportunities over and over and over again.

i have gone through so much bull shit in my life because of other people and mostly what happens afterward is someone else (like you, but not necessarily you, you sure are not the first) comes along and tells me what i should be doing and how i should suffer if i dont do it. like maybe i havent SUFFERED ENOUGH maybe if i SUFFER EVEN MORE!!!!! that will fix everything since obviously it was so successful the first time.

i realize you probably wont like my post but i almost dont care. you are really not the first person to tell me how wonderful of a mess my life is and if i didnt have to constantly worry about being evicted or beat up or have the policPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Get a bank loan, go to a real college despite what your parents tell you, and when you have a proper education, go to a town with a more thriving economy. If you're really so poor then you can probably get some kind of benefits like a scholarship or welfare or something. Do some research on this. You're already an adult. Also, try to start capitalizing your Is, using apostrophes, and putting periods at the end of a sentence. You don't have to write like you have a mental illness if you understand basic grammatical rules.

You still don't have a proper college education and you still don't make enough money to support yourself. I don't get why you're acting like i'm insulting you. It's a fact that despite being an adult, you are not financially independent. How many paintings would it take to pay for a private college? You'll be eighty by the time you get to that number, and by that point no company will hire you. Take a bank loan.

Does anyone here struggle with any eating disorders?

I have been extremely thin for most of my life, mostly because I regularly skip meals and don't work out.

Being very thin has hurt my self confidence. Also, the only physical activities I like to do are walking and biking, I think this might also make me thin.

Also, this thread can be about general physical help too.

Sometimes we want friends for selfish reasons - the most common reason being to prevent loneliness in one of its many forms. Humans being what we are, so long as that codependency is balanced with strong empathy and consideration for the other person, friendships can last a lifetime. A source of entertainment, support, and meaning.

Yoo

Im a neet too, a neet for many many years

I dont like to whine, not fond of self piety as its painfull and dangerous

Im prety good at avoiding reality with games, animes and random interests I cant keep for longer than a week

Life sucks but I cant fuck my family over with suicide. They arent the best but I cant do that.

Im 36 and despite being intelligent and talented with words , I have no skills, no degrees and no experience.

Nowadays ive been more and more unable to block reality as the rope is slowly tightened around my neck. Despair is starting to settle in and im looking for a way out of this shit.

Good thing is my parents might last for a few years and I can still train myself and try to get a job even when im so old.

I'm surprised you can even get a job at that age. Here you will really have to struggle with the HR peeps if you want to get a job at 30 something.

Also I'd like to share how I think about things. I've fucked up many times and screwed up many life changing decisions such as college and shit. Right now I'm still a NEET, sure. But I'm still trying to claw my way out of this hole. In reality, not everyone is a winner. Even if I know I'd end up as a loser, I'd still try to win. Why? Simply put, I see something when people struggle hard to live. I see something when people go out in the streets, selling candies and cigs just so they could have something to eat that night. Or people scrounging on trash to find something of value to sell just so they won't starve. I don't know how to describe this feeling. But I urge you to atleast try and "see things in a different light", in regards to your current situation. Even if you end up as a loser in life and die with nothing on his name, I still believe you should strive your best until the very end. Good luck man.
