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 take your religion and politics elsewhere this board is a support community for English speaking hikikomori to help each other out of their bedrooms

Rule 6. Encouraging any kind of drug use

Rule 7. Giving or requesting advice on how to become a hikikomori

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 the 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 and please remember to keep certain discussions in their containment threads

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

PLEASE READ

WHAT Does HIKIKOMORI MEAN?

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.

WHAT IS A HIKIKOMORI?

Hikikomori is a social condition in which the affected individual isolates themselves away from society at home in their parents house in their room for a period exceeding six months . The Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare of Japan defines hikikomori as a condition in which the affected individuals refuse to leave their parents' house, and isolate themselves away from society and their family in their bedrooms for a period exceeding six months but is not directly caused by a physical condition or other psychological problem.

So A NEET?

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

DO HIKIKOMORI GO OUTSIDE?

Yes and no contrary to popular belief most hikikomori actually do go outside for example to buy food but are still completely isolated socially and spend nearly everyday or almost everyday at home in their rooms however some hikikomori live in extreme conditions and never leave the house at all.

AM I HIKIKOMORI IF I LEAVE THE HOUSE TO GO TO SCHOOL/WORK?

Hey there! I hope that if you're reading this you're a fellow neet that felt nostalgia for this place, it wasn't high-paced, or extremely active like other boards but… but it was ours.

We had interesting discussions, we shared our knowledge, and we could bent out.

But /hikki/ is gone, no one is here anymore, and if you see someone is probably just some rando that stumbled with /hikki/s corpse.

It was fun, and I hope we can chat once again.

Goodbye

The worst thing for me as a hikki is that I am slowing but steadily un-learning my own native language.

English isn't my native language, it's German. I have no social contacts, no friends, no one, I don't even really talk to my family (rarely only). I don't have online friends either. 90% of all "conversations" I have are posting in English on 4chan (full of fucking normies though) or 8ch.

I can't say a full sentence in German without stuttering, and fucking up the tone and stress of the words. I also struggle remembering words, and sometimes I mess up the more complicated grammatical structures.

It goes without saying that the same applies to English, since I only ever write English and never speak it out loud.

I feel like a foreigner in my own country.

I have studied French since high school. Unfortunately, I started noticing that without practice my language gets worse and that makes me frustrated. I decided to use https://livexp.com/ because the reviews say it's a great platform for tutoring. Possibility of 1 on 1 lessons online at any convenient time.

Thanks for all the comments and interesting discussion about education. I have been struggling with my English ever since I arrived to the States. So my neighbor gave me this https://promova.com/tutors/private-english-tutor link as he thought that private tuition is much better than any college or courses. And you know what? He was right!

I recently quit talk therapy again. The only thing i go to anymore is to the mental health clinic to get more refills from the "prescriber". I wouldn't even do that but they only give me 2 refills per visit and will cut me off if i dont call and make an appointment. The meds make me functional enough to where i can think about things realistically. Talk therapy is shit. All it ever does is either make me worse when i let them in my head, or its just a waste of my time and an annoyance when i just humor them. This last time i was given the "go to therapy or get out" treatment by my uncle because of course normalfags think talking to some bitch for an hour will solve my psychosis. I take anti-psychotics, not ADHD meds and my fucking family still acts like i'm going to recover or something. I'm done, man. I'm going to drink and jack off a bit more but this is nearing the end for me. I won't be the sad empty-headed cunt who occasionally ends up in the psych ward for walking into traffic or otherwise making a fool of himself. I'm ending this while I still have a sense of self. Though, I don't think I have the energy to run away like i always planned so i can hide my body. Not sure what i'm going to do.

Seems like this thread is pretty dead but I thought I'd contribute anyway

Ive been going to a therapist for a few months now. I've seen several therapist over the years but they all seemed to kinda not be sure what to do with me and our appointments would get less and less frequent until id just stop going entirely. This new one though still insists on seeing me every week and he isn't really entirely nice at me. The sessions actually make me pretty anxious and uncomfortable but I guess there's no point in getting help from someone who's just going to tell you whatever you want to hear. I'm not sure if anything about this has helped or will help at all though. I kinda feel as if I am beyond the point of that being possible. Although I do appreciate the effort and I think this therapist is probably better than any of the other ones I've had. I'm sure in some situations a therapist can help but maybe you just need the right one. I've also been on a bunch of different SSRIs but never really noticed any effects beyond pretty minor side effects so I still don't really know if those had ever been worthwhile.

I've found some success with therapy, though it takes fucking forever. I've worked with 4 different shrinks now and three of them weren't remotely close to useful. My current therapist has been helping me make some progress regarding dealing with my extreme self hatred/anxiety, but the progress is extremely slow and expensive.

tl;dr it helps me but it isn't exactly a solution i would globally recommend

I came to the therapist not with a request to cure me, but with a request to help me understand myself. And we have made good progress.

Hey, that's the right message. I also try now to constantly attend online sessions with a psychologist, the pandemic has affected me worse, although for a hikki it should be heaven. I mostly have complaints about my appearance, but I found https://en.bookimed.com/clinics/country=republic-of-korea/procedure=liposuction/ and I think it will really help me become more open to people. My psychologist agrees with this.

Hi all, I'm your average person, I work a normal job and earn a normal income, I own a normal house, have normal friends, trying to get a normal car and GF, but no luck so far. I've come to ask what compels someone to put themselves in situation of complete and utter isolation/become a real life hermit. I understand not all Hikikomoris are complete losers, as some have a way of making money at home through programming, art commissions, etc some even have degrees from good universities. I would just like to know why you have all chosen to separate yourself from society. Please don't ban me just yet, I'm just curious.

P.S. I failed the Capcha to post this 2 times, does this mean I'm a robot?
