This was handled well, great board and great administration.

True hikkis don't leave interviews and know that there is no solution for them and no realistic change in society.

Welcome to /hikki/ a place for reclusive adolescents or adults who withdraw from society.

What is allowed on this board? What is its purpose?

On this board you can discuss and request or give advice regarding the Hikikomori lifestyle anxieties and social or mental issues arising from these conditions of living and also post general hikikomori discussion If you're content with being a hikikomori that's ok, and you won't get in trouble for saying so.

What is not allowed on this board?.

Rule 1. Please do not encourage anyone to become a hikikomori

Rule 2. Do not bully or harass someone simply for being a hikikomori

Rule 3. Keep trolling to a minimum (No flames)

Rule 4. Do not help others to plan or commit suicide suicide threads are fine but it is better to give advice rather than to lead the person on.

Rule 5. No topics not related to this board please

Rule 6. Encouraging any kind of drug use

Rule 7. Giving or requesting advice on how to enter the Hikikomori lifestyle

Rule 8. No Shitposting please be respectful and be genuine with your post /hikki/ is a slow traffic board for true hikikomoris to have a place to talk and nothing more.

Rule 9. Always check he catalog before creating a new thread, do not create a new thread asking for things that simply don't deserve a whole new thread dedicated to them

Rule 10. You must be a hikikomori or have been a hikikomori to post here

And All 8chan global rules apply

1: Nothing illegal under US law.

The term Hikikomori ひきこもり or 引きこもり is a Japanese word that when translated into English it means “pulling inward, being confined”,acute social withdrawal “) in context of a person the term refers to a shut-in who stays home and does not leave their room for very long periods usually for about 6 months or more.


Hikikomori is a social condition in which the affected individual isolates themselves from society at home in their room for a period exceeding six months however contrary to popular belief some hikikomori go outside but only for necessities or emergencies


Most hikikomori are neets and are supported by their parents or get money from the government however if you work or take classes online at home while still not going outside you are still a hikikomori but not a neet and a neet isn’t necessarily a hikikomori nor vice versa. You could be a hikikomori neet. But if you are a neet that does spend a moderate amount of time outside your house you are still a neet but you are not a hikikomori


NO Going to your day job not socializing while out at work/school going home and staying in your room for the rest of the night is NOT AND DOES NOT MAKE YOU A Hikikomori being a hikikomori and a shy introverted person are not the same thing.

(Pretenders and normalfags will be banned).


Yes While initially a Japanese phenomenon, Hikikomori happens all around the world

Not really. If you gave me some magical object that allowed me to turn into one while still being myself, I may do it just for the advantages that come with it since I don't care either way and a female with my brain would be ridiculously valuable. I would still be an outcast, but definitely attractive because I'm already attractive, and a perverted fujoshi with male interests (a tomboy, I guess), and even with the same mind, I'm already bisexual to begin with so that wouldn't be a problem. I know there is demand for that and just having a relationship is enough to guarantee a woman's survival. In my case, I think the benefit would be so huge that I would have to do it. I would be a walking storage locker full of fetishes (that I happen to be into as well).

Even then, I would use every advantage available to maintain my isolation. Then again, there are many disadvantages as well, like a massive amount of unwanted attention (it would probably make me want to avoid people even more) and a body that is a lot more inconvenient to deal with. Still, I would not want to become someone else for that. Also, I could just sell the magical object for millions of dollars, so I guess I could just do that instead. If it was a Ranma ½ kind of thing, there there would be basically no downsides at all as far as I'm concerned.

The tranny shit is fucked up, so of course I wouldn't do that. It's a very good way of destroying your life even more (well, at least if you destroy your genitals, especially, since that is particularly irreversible). Women are glorified too much, irrationally. Overall, men can get a lot more value out of life than the vast majority of women, that have basically no interests. Anyway, trying to look cute as a male is smarter and healthier. There is demand for it too and very little supply, so you can probably just stream games or whatever and make money pretty easily. And if you are already considered a failure by society, you don't have a whole lot to lose either. Whether you can pull it off or not has a lot to do with genetics, though. If you don't have the right face for it, it's a terrible idea.

I have to agree. If someone handed me a device or could cast a spell to turn me into an actual woman, I think i'd pay them to stay the fuck away from me. The sickening cattiness and superficiality that permeates most female circles, biological drawbacks (menstruation, hormonal fluctuations, etc.), and unnerving vulnerability to predators and fucking maniacs overshadows any delusions of "Living life on easy mode" in my opinion.

At most I would consider streaming or something to take advantage of the advantages from a distance but even then, where's the dignity in that? Social phobia wrecks havoc on the person I am now, a pair of tits and a pussy would make thngs infinitely worse.

Not really but I can see why you may think that. There might be a chance that you would be more social in liberated societies but again the chances are that you'll still be facing similar personal problems and/or new problems as a woman. You might end up as one of those abused woman in relationship(s) with some/several thuggish pavement ape/trailer trash. More social, sure, but still living a different type of a miserable life.

Do you blame your parents for you becoming a hikikomori?. Or are you thankful that they are supportive in providing you with whatever you need in your isolation?.

For me i have mixed feelings on one hand i'm very thankful of them for being supportive in providing me with whatever i need in my isolation while on the other hand i'm angry at them because they pressured me too much growing up to follow society's rules and expectations and their own expectations as well and they still do it to this day . I'm also angry that they never took the time to sit down listen to me and hear me out and ask me how are you feeling?? or what's wrong?? and so on.

What is your relationship with your parents like? also do you communicate with your parents or are you completely withdrawn from your family as well?.

No, not really, I know they messed up a lot, had me and my brother way too young and too soon in the relationship. They never got married so at least I didn't have to go through a divorce, just a loud "break up" that ultimately ended up fracturing my childhood into hundreds of pieces, none of which I remember too fondly, spread over the major cities of the East coast of the US. One issue is that this gave me the impression that relationships, all kinds of relationships since the people who I met and interacted with in school and at home would change once ever 6-8 months during my grade school days, are temporary and ultimately only as valuable as the things you get out of them. Couple that with an above average intelligence and bing bang boom, you get your first existential crisis before there's hair on your nuts. No 7 year old should be asking himself, "well nothing really matters, people die everyday. people are only alive because of chance right? So then why does anyone do anything if we're all just going to die anyway?"

I blame this POZZED country and it's backwards ass morality, everyone so eager to say they help those less fortunate but never doing jack shit in reality. When most children were wondering if they'll be able to touch Jessica's huge tits at that party this weekend, I was at home rubbing one or 5 out to give myself enough of a dopamine high to get up after sleeping all day. I blame the culture of lies that we have adopted, lying to our children to give them whimsical fantasies about some lard ass commie giving expensive shit away for free once every year. The Wiemar-tier degeneracy infesting our schools, literature, media, and politics.

The only thing I blame my parents for is the shit that was legitimately their fault, like my father always quitting jobs, or my mother cheating on him with some pavement ape. Then having a fucking goblin baby with the damn thing. Even then, it's not enough for me to never speak to them again, they're only human, they are as much of a victim of this culture as I am. Even then last time I spoke to my father was Christmas eve, and not once since then has he even crossed my mind, my entire life could be summed up in one sentence. "I don't really care that much."

Jesus fucking Christ.

I'm happy for you guys who were successful, but I've been trying to get back my SSI for 10 years now.


I was initially granted it for depression/anxiety as a teen only for them to discontinue it for no good reason once I turned 20.

And not only am I still mentally ill, but I'm at least 5x worse than I was back then, with physical problems now too. I also had four strokes and an aneurysm that almost killed me, and I can barely walk or speak from the brain/nerve damage.

What the fuck am I doing wrong?

Thanks for the tip


>ten years

>What the fuck am I doing wrong?

Yeah, what are you doing exactly? You know the form you have to fill out that has questions and writing sections for you? Well, for any question that wasn't a simple answer, I typed out a very long and detailed response and attached a paper full of answers. I think in total I had 4 or so pages full of written responses. I had a so-called "witness" I put down, which was my mom. So in addition to me filling out this form, she got her own form sent from Social Security and wrote answers down for every section and wrote similar to me but did her own thing of course. And of course I have numerous diagnoses; avoidant personality disorder, social phobia, bipolar I disorder, and neurodevelopmental disorder. I think the main thing is you need a written diagnosis of something more significant (to the eyes of social security) than depression and social anxiety.

If you have to, anon, twist the truth a bit; not lie exactly but stress certain things, emphasize, exaggerate your issues.

This is just how I went through it, and it seemed to work out though maybe I'm just a rare case, I don't know.

Same anon here. I actually did this as part of a fair hearing request, and you know what happened?

I got a response from the judge, dismissing everything I said. Her reason being that since I was "intelligent enough" to write all that, that I couldn't possibly be disabled.

Yeah, I'm still alive. My mental state is looking a little better. I found a therapist who I sort of connect with. Out of everyone I've seen so far, he's been the best. But even he doesn't really get me completely and my symptoms are strange to him.

I finally regained some of my ability to read and write. I can more or less understand the plot of a novel if I re-read it a couple of times. So I have that going for me.

i'm still alive. holidays weren't great. my mother kept pushing me to go to various things and i kept saying no. it feels really bad constantly telling someone no. i try my best to keep my situation under wraps with my parents, but i was forced to tell her that i cant go out because i'd have an anxiety attack. i managed to only have to attend 1 family event for two hours.

my big problem this year is that i lose my insurance soon. i have multiple health issues that i've been procrastinating getting fixed. i cant see past 10 feet, two of my fingers have been asleep for a month, and i haven't been to a dentist in a long time. i really dont want to go to the doctor but if i dont soon i won't be able to ever again for free.

I bought PUBG and tried it and my anxiety went through the roof. My hands were shaking and I was so nervous. I ended up getting 5 kills in my third match but christ I was ready for a nervous breakdown. I can't do it. I used to be so into FPS games like Rainbow Six Siege but my anxiety just gets to me. These games are so tense. Now I just play my switch all day with its relaxing nintendo games and indies. I suppose I'm a casual now but oh well. At least hollow knight doesn't make my hands shake.

Do any of you anons have anxiety and how do games help or make it more problematic? Have you had experiences similar to mine? I'm going to refund PUBG for $20, what game should I buy? I assume by the time I get the refund the winter sale will be over, so what's good for $20 or less?

4 years ago I really thought i could go pro in counter strike and i tried really hard and played it basically all day and all night and didnt bother to eat or sleep i played it so much. Thinking back I didnt really enjoy playing the game since it made me so incredibly furious and angry that I frequently had to go sit down or try to sleep to cool down because I just go so angry I thought I would start punching holes in the wall and could barely control myself. Not exactly what you are talking about but kinda close. Nowadays I just play single player games only and its definitely a change for the better since Im not about to crush my mouse every other hour. As for new games, the only games I dont emulate that I think are worth it honestly are games like xcom or Paradox games, theyre really good if you dont mind putting in a good amount of time to figure them out, or a JRPG like Trails of Cold Steel but I dont think thats $20

52c0a9  No.6880


I actually enjoy competitive fps games quite a bit when I'm in the mood. I feel a real sense of progression and satisfaction that few single player games offer when I start getting better and have those brief pockets of whooping ass when i'm on a roll. I like knowing I'm competing against real people who are trying just as hard as me to not get their shit pushed in and just the whole game being in good fun. But aside from back when I had steady friends, I don't do voice chat or anything, I get too anxious and most of the time it seems to be shithead kids anyway.

I only have the base game though, and since Activision is such a greedy nigger of a publisher I have to buy all the fucking DLC to get past level 20.

I don't recommend it, the writing is enough to make me regret downloading it, I can't imagine what sort of anger I would have had if I bought this.

I got EBT the other day and went grocery shopping for myself, as un-hikki-like as it is and bought a ton of instant ramens.

First one I had was sesame chicken rice ramen, the noodle didn't taste like anything even after adding soy sauce and hot sauce to save it. Broth was still good though. I don't know if I want to fall for the healthy brand meme again.

Yesterday I had one of those BLAZING HOT SPICY WITH SHRIMP ones, don't recall if they have a brand but you see them in bodegas and gas stations often. I've had this one a bunch of times, even if it's not quality stuff it's comforting.

Have any other hikkis here ever thought of or tried to commit suicide in the past??. It's been 10 years almost 11 and almost nothing i do makes me happy anymore and i have little to no motivation to do anything with my time spent in isolation anymore. I've tried asking people online about working from home but most people say that's not realistic and that i should just go outside and get over it. I honestly can't take it anymore and if i don't find anything to help motivate myself soon suicide seems like a good option i guess. But i would be a lot happier if i could just earn some money without leaving my room or having the motivation to at least do something instead of feeling like i'm completely drained of life to be honest i'm crying while typing this and i can't take it anymore can any other hikkis relate??.

Given the nature of hikkis I doubt many of us have access to a car. Charcoal is interesting but I'm too worried about accidentally burning down wherever the deed is done, and if it's done inside our home whether it will affect others that live here.

I'd say I'm average level cleanliness. I did have a period where I had junk gathered in a heap in the corner and clothes piled on the furniture but it never got to piss bottle level. I've never been OCD clean though.

Sala Samobojcow is a Polish movie about a teenager who locks himself in his room after being humiliated in school and becomes addicted to a video game where he meets a suicidal hikki. Pretty decent movie. Every few months there's an English subbed version on youtube but it keeps getting removed

Spanish subbed version (couldnt find the english one) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKbI6h_XZTk

I know most of the users on here don't want to change and some are happy and content with being a hikikomori but i have a question for those who are recovering hikkis what are you doing to fix your situation?? and do you think you will succeed in the outside world or just go back to being a hikki again??.

Also question for other current hikkis have you ever tried to reintegrate back into society??. I've tried many times in the past but was always met with hostility so i gave up on even trying.

I'm 23 and have been hikki for 6 or 7 years now. I feel a deep longing to stop this.

For a few years I lived in innocent ignorance of my situation, but I know and feel now that it's never going to get better unless I drastically change.

I don't know what I'm going to do yet. My short term goal is getting a drivers license and maybe joining a school next september. I was mainly looking at the service industry or nursing. My long term goals are moving out of this country and starting anew some place else. I never identified with this country, it's people or my family so I have no roots here. It might be one of my NEET delusions to think this could actually be achieved, especially considering my track record, but I must believe something can change in order to maintain sanity.

I might travel and volunteer in a foreign country as well using www.workaway.info. It might stress me into social situations and being responsible. I might be an isolated NEET but I'm not entirely socially retarded, I don't think.

These are just my musings for now I suppose. God I wish I may not feel like this forever.

Also to add, I've had two job interviews in the past 2 months.

One was a McDonalds one where they said they would call me, but didn't.

Another was at an restaurant for an assistant cook where I was basically told to stop looking for work in kitchens. It was insanely humiliating.

Let this be a warning to other hikkis. They can smell you.

those short term goals sound to be in the right direction. it is much easier to face short term things, and the sense of accomplishment afterwards can boost you into bigger things, little by little, thinking of it as digging yourself out.

I have gone between hikki and not several times now.

the first was over a decade. I was so stuck in my head that I could see no way out of it. many small positive changes and decisions eventually led to my escape.

after less than a year out, I met a girl. she turned out to be crazy and ruined years of work on myself. I fought to improve myself again, found new work, but within months my health suddenly broke.

I kept myself working for some years, but my health has never recovered. when I stopped work, i went back to isolation. then escaped again for almost a year, but now back again with no prospects.

if my health hadn't failed, I think I could have permanently escaped with time. like this, I don't know.

it is like alcoholism, you have to constantly fight to stay away from it. constantly live, and avoid isolation, because isolation is our "safety", our drug.


this post is deeply true.

video games and films stopped being fun years ago. though that is one thing that helped push me out. the distractions of entertainment weren't working.

eefa5f  No.6861


the only thing that I've found which keeps me away from it consistently, is foricing a routine and habits which force me to be social. I just mean be around people on a regular basis.

one could be work, but that isn't enough. living with flatmates helped a little. going to weekly meetings for hobbies and interests was most important, even when I didn't feel like it, it sort of 'reset' me every time, to talk with people, and to be out doing something.

if I listened to the other voice, saying "don't go, stay in", I would sink down further. in reality I soon realised that just for my own self esteem and sense of accomplishment, going to the meeting just as an action was very positive and important.

join a book reading club, or other quiet things to start with. well, work your way up to that.

the small actions really make a big difference is what I want to say.

i am paranoid about being kicked from this board because I have relapses of 3-6 months at a time and then I have no one to talk to. but I want to help those who haven't found their way out yet.

I wish I could move on from this current hikki life but I have no skills or talents that can make me money, so I'd be stuck doing some simple wageslave job, which sounds awful. I'm stuck leeching off the government with my autismbux. I tried learning programming once or twice but I'm just not intelligent enough for it. Sigh. I'm just going to end up being homeless one day and offing myself from a bridge or pull an hero with a cop's gun.

I'm literally losing my mind like i can't enjoy anything ever not one piece of media or anything that other hikkis enjoy and i'm just spending my days trying to find something that i can enjoy instead of enjoying something. I just literally dropped an anime half way after getting sick of it..

Whenever I find no enjoyment in anything trying to complete things for the sake of completing them makes things worse. The way I deal with it is I try to find something I can enjoy, which usually involves the brain storming of things to do or otherwise research/look things up. In a way this process is therapeutic and it wastes time.

The possibilities on a computer with an internet connection alone are endless, so something is bound to stir up excitement inside of you. For me it's usually a video game; as an example a few days ago I fiddled around with some custom modules for Neverwinter Nights and stumbled upon one that immediately clicked with me.

I think it's important not to get burnt out with whatever you're doing. Take breaks and do something else. If you're not enjoying watching anime, don't watch anime and instead find something else to watch or do. Life as a shut in can become pretty damn monotonous and repetitive, which is why I find it's important to switch things up as often as you can. I do still go through periods that OP described but eventually something always catches my attention. Last thing I want to add is: don't over think things. Don't think "I will probably not enjoy doing this". Do it first and then question whether you're enjoying it or not, not beforehand.

My go to thing is always video games, there's so many genres and time periods to explore it's ridiculous. Emulate games for a console you never had a chance to play. Play games from before your time. The 90s and early 2000s have a shit ton of fantastic games.

And to give you something to do (although I don't know what the ads/popups are like on this site since I run 2 adblockers) this is a good place to pirate any GOG games from: http://freegogpcgames.com/

Have a look and see if you can find anything to play.

I just i don't know what to do to fill the void i just analyze activities and then never do any of it which sickens me. at this point i just keep refreshing the same imageboards..

Never have only one hobby/interest. The brain demands variety, especially when you have a lot of time. Hell, two hobbies aren't enough. When I only watched anime and played games, I would still get bored pretty often and that was when I was still in school, much younger, but now I have enough interests that I never get bored anymore. Do something else. I still do all of that, but I fuck around with computers, electronics, programming, I read a lot, occasionally write quite a bit, watch a lot of different things. I just randomly acquired new interests over time because of people on the internet that really know how to make things look awesome.

The computer gives access to an entire universe (the internet), but it still feels like "just the computer" after some time. Everything feels the same.

Try to do something that doesn't involve the computer, like drawing or learning an instrument.

These activities will develop a connection with your own body.

the only things I participate in are things I enjoy, and that's almost never been anime.

Here are the lyrics, apparently the song tells the story about a girl who ' walked in the third year of [being] hikikomori'.
