Are any Australian disability support pensioners aboard this vessel? Curious as to your standard of living. I don't seek the pension, but want to know my options if a turn of events continues to hold me back. Been unemployed due to physical and mental health for the past year. All diagnosed, of course.

I'm not on DSP myself, but I know/know of a few people who are. Payment is higher than the dole, it's pretty easy to live in a place by yourself if you are reasonably frugal.

Ever seen a character in anime that reminded you so much of yourself it was almost surreal?

Watching Hokuto No Ken made it seem like it was an allegory of my life. Everything in that show was a mirror of my own life, and it felt extremely uncomfortable.


There's a guy exactly like me in Narutaru. Not sure if that's something to be proud of; Shadow Star is a dark work about messed up people.

(not naruto, NOT NARUTO)

I'm actually not done watching the show (only 5 episodes in), but from what I've seen so far it's extremely weird and connects to me on a different level than almost any other anime I've seen, and comparable to some of the Chehov I've read. Something so absolutely insane, something that I see inside of myself.

What keeps us from killing ourselves? Don't get me wrong. I don't think everyone should do it. But what about those of us who truly have nothing left to strive for? If Waifus and anime are enough for you then more power to you. You're the lucky ones. But what about the rest of our wretched ilk? It's all downhill after a certain point.

I am a happy person with several hobbys and currently looking for a new job.

Also I got a good family which I love and since 4 months a gf, lets see if it works out well. Wish me luck.


Until it actually breaks you and you cant go on any longer and die with absolutely nothing but regret, hatred and sorrow.
Assuming you arent so broken you can actually feel anything at all at that point.

Lets face it in reality only our actually physical survival instinct and lack of motivation for such an act keeps up alive.


Having the ability to play vidya and my interest in music production and computer engineering shit, but mostly vidya.

If I didn't have that, at least, then I probably have no reason to live. No friends and etc.


Why do we sleep?
"To rest" one would say.
But the answer is to wake up.
We want to see tomorrow.
That is as good as reason to live.
As i can give you.


If you're dead you're dead as far as I can assume, but as long as you're alive I think you'll be miserable forever if you don't try. If you do, you might still be miserable forever, but being alive means you have the chance not to be, maybe. If I die with regret at least I'd be dead anyways so it doesn't matter.

How can one live the NEET life? I just lost my job, I'm incredibly stressed, paranoid and depressed lately. I somehow do not qualify for unemployment because they won't count my last job (which would put me well over the 680 hour minimum hours you have to work to receive it). Since I lost my last job I've only been able to get a part time job as a security guard, I'm only working 7 hours on Mondays and 6 hours on Tuesdays. I have bills to pay and I haven't been paid yet (even though my first pay day was supposed to be last thursday). I'm a straight white male with no physical disabilities (maybe some mental, like my depression and anxiety, but from what I've heard, if you only have a couple mental disabilities like depression and anxiety, you might as well just not bother applying for SSI). I really don't want to move back in with my folks. I'm fucking 22 and it's pretty shameful to still be living with your folks at that age. Losing my last job has got to be the worst thing to happen to me thus far. There's not a day that goes by where I honestly don't want to kill myself ;_;

What do you guys do in order to pay the bills but still stay NEETs?

So I'm about to be homeless and I've been a NEET for 8 years. My parents owe me $500 dollars that they stole from me before and as soon as they pay me I have to leave.

Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation? What did you do? Surprisingly I'm not all that worried. I want to hear your stories.

We come here, gathered today on the dark corners of the internet, a series of tubes, under seisatsu's snow, to remember OP.

OP was just a poor NEET, brought to this world under the premise of living a life to fulfill his role in the reincarnation cycle and get one step closer to the long desired Nirvana. The karma he had to face during this life was an existence filled with null days full of emptiness, as descried in his posts, and he almost succeeded there were most creatures, tied to worldly matters, can't. But, although OP bravely managed to live humbly and without asking much for most of his life, in his last days he decided to walk the path we, as non-illuminated humans, have to step on at least once in our long cycle to Buddha. With only 500 bucks in his hands he faced his destiny and looked straight into its eyes. Then he started to walk step by step into his future, and the gears of destiny thus once again started to work on him, leading his being even deeper into the eternal cycle of reincarnation.

OP shall be remembered from this day onward as a true hero, and he shall not be forgotten. Ever. For he was destined to cleanse his own karma by his own actions, and learn all the ways of life before finally reaching the enlightenment. No act ever performed by this man is thereby futile, because all the ways are meant to lead us closer to perfection.

I am no one. I am nothing. And as nothing, I shall acknowledge your efforts in this life. That's why I took the liberty to choose a funeral song for you, as a reminder that we will meet again in this perpetual spinning wheel we call life. I hope you enjoy it. https://my.mixtape.moe/olwish.mp3

May OP rest in peace.


Your song sucks.


Then I have something more appropriate for you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ovk8zXe1Sc

Relatable characters thread?

Here's the main character from Welcome to the NHK.

Main protagonist of Paranoia Agent

Her anxious, wild nonsensical chains of thought remind me of how I used to be.

Also Jintan from Ano Hana, though less so.

Would any of you consider yourself "addicted" to the Internet? And if so, is it something you're trying to get out of? I've put some tips and general advice into a video for YouTube, although I've probably missed some obvious tips. Got any ideas? I'm a recovering NEET and Internet addict myself by the way.

*next to no desire


"Internet Addiction" really seems like the header of an MSN article. I hate imagining a genuinely concerned parent going to their child's counselor and telling them their eleven year-old is hooked on 'the internet' as if it were some sort of drug.
If there's an addiction you've developed that the internet makes possible (e.g. porn, video games, tumblr) then isolate it and work the problem out individually. Never write off such a groundbreaking tool as internet connectivity because you use a tiny section of it improperly.


Too true.


I actually did have video game addiction for a while and was able to beat it.
Now I have a drug addiction
Not much of an improvement if you ask me, but I seem to be getting better grades and get out more…


Almost everything you can do is mediated by the internet. Even very heavy use is not necessarily appropriate for an addiction model any more than electricity is.

I think its if, i.e., you are spending excessive time on message boards, rolling news, lets plays or other "low-quality" content and feel a compulsion to do so.

What's your excuse for not significantly contributing to this world

By the way, what I am talking about is the emotional attachment I have to Bambi, I don't know what it is man but I feel when I think of this character and very few other things in my life, he is innocent, pure, ripe with virtues, and then he kicks an attacking dog off a cliff… Why? I understand defence is defence but, alternative methods were possible, it pains my heart, I have bawled my fucking eyes out thinking of this character on multiple occasions without really knowing why, now however, I feel this bond, it has been damaged, or it is a test in forgiveness.

I think I will go to bed, this is upsetting me and I don't want to ponder it more, not that it will stop, it never ends for me no peace no winding down, I thought I could relate to you man, why you gotta be like that? I wish I knew the answer to that.


maybe it's my fault, and I jumped to conclusions, I recall passing by long ago however this thinking never came across me then or if it did it was hidden away, but do not fear, because I forgive you anyway… it's ok, rest easy.


Severe spinal pain as well as diagnosed generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder. I suspect another mental health issue, but as it's not confirmed I won't claim it.

I don't necessarily mooch though. Mother is on disability in my country and I live with her. I periodically fast as necessary to afford Internet. I'm hoping I can somehow find employment despite my physical and mental hindrances. New set of medication commences soon and I'm hopeful.


Although, I have been 'hopeful' for nearly three years now.


Good for you for looking to work despite your obstacles, I too have been diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder and it's severely limited a lot of my life, my childhood was affected by it, and now my adult life is affected by it, I tried medication unfortunately I felt far too hazy to keep taking them and stopped, that and they destroy your liver over time, many of life's milestones were for me unfulfilled, I feel so self-conscious that sometimes I will talk to myself - like someone could be watching me, very difficult illness to deal with so I know where you're coming from in that regard.

>i dont deserve this money
>but I won't give it to someone who needs it
Then why are you even complaining?


I wouldn't mind this.

I doubt anyone would find me attractive enough to rape anyway.


>I'm a waste of oxygen.
And what are you going to do about? Just because you haven't worked for what you have, does not mean you cannot do anything to help others or make yourself a better person.

There are so many things you could be doing in your NEET cave. You could be scanning books[1], learning a new language and/or translate literature[2], do fansubbing[3] (if you're monolingual and want to stay that way, I suggest applying as a typesetter[4]), be penpals with strangers around the world[5], and so much more! Seriously, being a NEET is no excuse for being a shitty person, nor does it automatically make you shitty person. If you've done nothing to feel proud of, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

tl;dr: Being a NEET is is not the reason your waste of oxygen; the only reason you'd be a waste of oxygen is if you do nothing else for others.

I'm probably rambling, but hopefully you can understand what I meant.


Not the person you replied to but holy shit is your post really nice. You're a good person

Any fellow NEETs that can't seem to appreciate nor take advantage of their situation?

I'm in my mid to late 20s and I've been living the NEET/shut-in/dweller lifestyle on and off since I was around 10 years old. This has caused me to miss many important developmental milestones, needless to say. I've never dated, never learned personal responsibilities such as driving and shopping for myself, never had a job that wasn't the result of nepotism , never socialized beyond grade school, never lived on my own and so forth. I believe there are many contributing factors to my current circumstances, such as childhood abuse (sexual, physical, verbal), emotional neglect and a host of mental and emotional issues including OCD, depression, social anxiety, ADHD (with assberger tendencies) and a particularly damning learning disorder (for good measure!).

Now, with the veiled resentment of family bearing down on me (I'm a 'burden'), the intrusive thoughts, maladaptive daydreaming, irrational fears and daily stress of knowing that with each passing hour my dreams and goals grow a little closer to the toilet, I can't seem to leverage my NEETdom to my advantage. I seem to be without any profitable natural gifts, let alone the emotional self-regulation required to study and acquire charlatan/guru skills, thus acquiring monies. If not used as a 'launching pad' from which to seek deliverance from my biggest internal obstacles, at least $$$ would serve to distract me from the misery of endless compulsive internet use and porn addiction…

All things considered, it would seem I'm forced to live as either a hobo/survivalist or grovel for the continued ('murican poverty level) financial assistance and housing provided by family.

Well, let's all whine about our similarly shitty situations and get a good hearty circle-jerk going! Or perhaps someone can offer me workable solutions to my problems and send me a Nigerian cash inheritance.

Hello again. I'm continuing to lose weight. I'm having a scale arrive in the mail, so I don't have to use the one at the college any more. My acne's fading away as I use acne medication consistently. I feel much more confident now.

It's been useful for me to see posts I've made in the past on this board to give me a more concrete understanding of my personal development. (Sometimes, it hurts to look at things I said in the past, but it is still helpful.)


Behold my kindred spirits, do not fret but look for something you enjoy, search your heart.
