crippling anxiety?Hi everyone, long time lurker here. I don't normally like to talk, not even online, so this is a first for me. I've been a NEET for going on ten years now. I make myself feel better by saying that I'm taking care of my parents(helped both lose weight, cook them healthy meals, keep the house clean, take care of animals, ect), but I can't help but shake the feeling that I'm a waste of space if I don't have an income of my own.
questions for the NEETshi /n/, im curious about the NEETdom and wondering if you could answer some questions?
How to recover from NEETdom?Hi guys, I've posted a couple of my videos on hikikomoridom here before so hopefully you won't mind another one. I don't get many viewers so having some feedback from my fellow NEETs would be great.
sicknesspost itt if you are sickly as well as NEET
u der aussiesAre 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.
Chats & Communities ThreadDo you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.
An Hero IncorporatedWhat 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.
Internet AddictionWould 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.
Family (wo)man or Single life?Who here want's to leave their NEET life behind, get a job, find a wife, and raise a family?
neets with drugsI was only an intense neet for maybe 3 months of my life
The Shut-in-networkWelcome to the shut in thread!!!
NEET GearNEET's and technology go hand in hand. Some NEETs stay trendy and keep up with the best of the best software. Some NEETs have a computer older than most of the people who come here, and think Windows 95 is the pique of design.
depression> not an english mothertongue and not enough skilled to write a proper english
/GED/I'm assuming the drop out rate among NEETS is higher than the average population.
Happy NEET threadAre you relatively comfortable with yourself? Have you found ways to deal with the boredom? Have you accepted you're in it for the long haul? This is the thread for you!
How do you live?Since the beginning of my NEET status, there's one thing that's always bothered me: the percieved lack of a reason to exist.
Gross stuff?What are some things you do (or don't do) as a NEET that others would consider gross/disgusting? Whether it's not showering or brushing your teeth or booze-fueled vomit sessions or even something like obsessing over people through social media. You share and the rest of us won't judge (hopefully).
Disability/physical issuesThis has likely been asked before, but does anyone here have physical disabilities that prevent them from having a social life/leaving the house/etc.?
why do i careI just need to vent before I end up hurting myself over this. TL;DR at bottom.
Dark & Edgy SecretsITT: we post secrets that we need to get off our chest, want options of.
My life continues to spiral constantly downwards, and im the one stirring the potI like to write subjects that have meaning to my overall message: in this case, I see myself - stirring, a dark red cauldron filled to the top bubbling with a frothy substance not fit for tongue. Myself that stirs sees me, a spirit, watching himself that is me destroy myself that which is to be.
WellfareI'm really sick of living with my family, in the same city I've disliked for 15 years. How hard would it be for me to just move to another state and apply for wellfare for a few months? (I literally can't get the motivation to apply for jobs because I hate living here so much.)

Neet.nu surviors threadMaybe people havent heard but a textoard neet.nu has closed and now redirects to this board.
Gender Dysphoria and NEETSgreetings /n/, i am a 22 year old mtf with no hope of transition and am pretty much a NEET who despises themselves for their uselessness, failures, and body. and am wondering how many trransgendered NEETS are there? since for me the unbearable dysphoria cotributes greatly to myfear and hatred of being out in social situations and my inability to handle coursework or work in general. With the ammount of internal pain ad distress this terrible dysphoria can bring surely i am not alone in this situation?
NEET regretHas anyone else here had a sudden realisation about the permanent damage NEETdom has done to your life? I suppose I was always somewhat aware that I was pissing my life away, but only recently did it hit me that it's permanently FUBAR.
disgusted by myselfI grew up the happiest child, I was always smiling and I loved life. Throughout my early school life I was always popular. I was funny: people would gather around me and I was friends with every single person I came across. I always knew that my parent's relationship was not the best, but at some point in time they just finally couldn't tolerate each other anymore, and I sat there for hours in our small 2 bed room apartment with nowhere to hide, listening to them yell at each-other at max volume for hours at a time. This was every single day; they would not give me a reason when I asked why they would not get a divorce. A lot of the yelling and abuse spilled over and my mother would take her frustration/rage out on me.
Neat NEETsHow do you stay tidy? I've got a repetitive habit of soiling my room with garbage and stray possessions. Whenever I clean it, I vow to set a suitable routine to keep it immaculate, but I inevitably resume hoarding junk the moment I stop cleaning.
NEET MediaAs the subject implies, I'm interested in NEET media: films, books, anime, whatever.
Getting a job/The futureI've browsed this site for a while now and it seems like I've seriously found a community that shares my thoughts and feelings.
suicidei feel like i should kill myself. i have had this thought in my head many times a day for a long time.

Greatest fear in regards to graduating from NEETdomDo you have one?
Looking for MattI made a friend on here about a year ago, only person I could really talk to about a lot of the things I couldn't with other people. I stopped talking to him and I don't know why. For all I know he could be dead now, he was pretty suicidal. I met him on here actually. Matt if you're still on here, if you could find it in you to be my friend again, add me on my new skype
advice?Hi /n/, first time I come here.
Plans for the futureThe future freaks me out.

How do you deal with judgement?How do you deal with people judging you? Every time family members come to my home I a;ways get asked the question "What are you doing with your life?".
meet NEET womenso after being in a relationship for three years with a NEET girl, and being a NEET myself, I got sick of her lack of intellect and it eventually came to a breaking point when she wouldnt stop spouting radfemme memes.
Drugs and the socially disinclinedSince the old thread is deeply buried and seems to be auto-saged (I tried posting in it without sageing, but it didn't get bumped), I suppose I'll start up a new one.

I want to learn KoreanHi guys !
the neet life?hey there guys i know its probably really early for me to be assuming this but, i believe my life is heading down the neet path im 17 and my family is over expecting as they think for some reason im intelligent. however i get really shit grades and beyond high school i have no abilities or qualities an employer would want. so hows the neet life ?
IdentityAs I slowly come out of my room into the real world, I am noticing changes in what I am interested in and what my attitude is towards things. It feels like someone else was put into my body. This was my choice, to join society, I know, but I didn't want to lose myself in the process.
not NEET relatedNot NEET related but I honestly have no one to talk to / no other forums that I trust like this one
-It's weird. By all accounts my life is finally in an upswing. I'm on course to finish my associate's degree next may, and to return to the university I dropped out to finish a bachelor's by 2016.
Activities for 1 (hobbies?)What are some things that you guys do in order to occupy yourself, whilst making your day seem more structured/purposeful? Other than the standard of video games/anime, what other hobbies do you have?
Communities?I have NO idea where the original post is for the last one, and high bets it's been buried into the depths. So until it gets resurrected again in some manner, this will have to do.
How do people make friends?I cant help wonder how people manage to make friends, normal people that is.
How do you overcome social anxiety?Hello /n/.
Women cannot be NEETStay-at-home spouses are not NEETs, because NEET is a social classification of people who are expected to be in school or training, but choose or forced not to. According to Wikipedia:
Neet colony?Imaging now just hypothetically, just for like imagination.
Fuck this hell hole earthI spend over 23 hours per day in my room doing nothing but reading the economic, moral, financial, and military collapse of the United States. I firmly believe that the United States will break up into pieces into at least 3 or 4 countries. I just don't know what to do. Its all about every man woman and child for themselves. Its all about shifting the burden. Shifting the cost of existing to someone else. I hate this shifting the burden to survive bulkshit. I'm 26. No degree 82 credits. No money. No nothing. What am I supposed to do? Work some piece of shit minimum wage job so some multi millionaire/billionaire can make even more billions and millions all while shifting the burden onto my back? Fuck that garbage. I hate this fucking world bullshit competition popularity contest hr bullshit every man for himself garbage. No one cares. Everyone dies. Nothing will be done by anyone one. So lets all get bullshit min wage jobs that don't even pay enough to fucking live while some rich person that doesn't even know you gets richer. I hate capitalism communism and socialism. Why? Because they all end the same exact way. A few rich psychopath control freaks controlling everything with all the money and guns and everyone else fucking off until they die. Fuck this world. I hate it. I ddon't know what to do or what I'm doing. I don't know. I dont know I dont know
Bad People?What is your general opinion over how good or evil people are?
WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO WITH YOUR LIFE, HUH?So what are your plans for the future? A while ago I decided I wasn't going to put forth any further effort to secure a future for myself beyond what's absolutely required of me, i.e making sure I don't get kicked out by the hand that feeds. It's working out pretty well so far, but I know it's not sustainable. Regardless, I feel alright about the whole thing, which is a lot more than I could say a year ago, when I would constantly panic about my lack of direction. Whatever works I guess. How about you guys?
Dealing with loneliness?I really want at least someone to talk to, but I always find myself too anxious, emotional, or generally uncomfortable to actually handle interactions.
how to be a neethi /n/. so I turned 18 a week ago. currently at community college trying to earn high school credits. I'll be here for awhile but when the time comes and I graduate I'll have no idea where to go from there.
Why do you lurk or post on /n/?its the brand of people to me
Physically disabled NEET?I was wondering if there's any NEETs who have physical illnesses that have contributed to them being unable to go outside or function?
Driving licensesAny NEETs here without there driving license? I'm 19 and I don't have mine. I've had some pretty bad experiences on the road. Not with driving but more with the people who were in the car with me.
Dealing with hatered and anger?I feel like im about to burst out, kill my family and neighbors.
Depression about the futureI feel great dishonour from being a NEET, which makes me depressed.
ImaginationAre you in control of your Imagination? Totally? Partially? Not at all?
Anyone else relate to these feels?http://french.tumblr.com/post/68039682666/im-so-fucking-weird-its-like-im-the-nicest
Memory IssuesHow many of you can't remember most of your life?
Audio "autobiography" of a neetI plan to soon record my thoughts, observations and reflections of my life on audio.
HobbiesI have the next few months off and figured I might as well do something productive, so I've been trying to pick up hobbies. Started on a new crochet plushie and am trying to learn how to cook but it seems to be hard to find a good youtube channel for it. Anyone know any good videos for someone new to cooking?
Crying?Do you guys cry sometimes? And if so do you have specific reasons or is it just the generic loneliness feeling of worthlessness and etc? Also how often do you do?
ALCHEMY GENERALHello, /n/. My name is Anonymous, and I am both NEET and a hikikomori. My life has hit an all time low as my parents have scheduled for me to see a conclave of doctors to diagnose and presumably drug me, but that's not the real problem. The problem is they're giving me an allowance too. This humiliating turn of events has convinced me as to the necessity of my immediate doom, therefore, I must create an elixir thereof. I live near a forest full of common herbs and whatnot, and have a decent grasp on medieval chemistry and alchemy. I am willing to break my hikikomori streak and spend money on this quest. I will either make the best tea ever or die having accidently made the best poison ever. How should I start my ignorant botany quest?
WastesWhen I was all in for this lifestyle, I accepted that I wouldn't live past 30, which made feel okay doing the same thing in my room every day.
general noticeWhat is a NEET? Is this board only for NEETs?
