> makes me sad seeing this place so much slower than it was a year ago. But I suppose it's natural, given the nature of hikikomori.

Yeah this place has changed a little within it existing only for a year the reason for the slow traffic is because some of the users who posted here did commit suicide and others simply left or forgot this place even existed i guess and more recently i found this stupid kid who in the past has advertised this place in his cringey as fuck videos but his channel is a slow and dead channel so i doubt anyone new who is not a hiki would come here he thinks being a hiki is some alternative way of life and some sort of MGTOW political movement he is an idiot being a hiki is an actual social condition we didn't choose to lock ourselves up in our rooms it just happened hikikomori are victims of circumstance.

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

1. Hikikomori 引きこもり or ひきこもり by definition means in English pulling inward, being confined", i.e., "acute social withdrawal"

2. A hikikomori is someone who withdraws themselves away from all forms of social contact and stays at home all day ether in a bedroom or apartment they live in usually for about 6 months or more.

3. There is a difference between hikikomoris and neets neets are simply just unemployed people who don't want to work but still go outside and socialize but some hikikomoris are unemployed neets but unlike normalfag neets they stay inside all the time.

4. a hikikomori can have a job (But works from home only).

5. The only time a hikikomori would ever go outside is for hunger or if its a life threatening emergency

6. Going to your day job not socializing while out at work 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).

7. If you are a recovering hikikomori that is okay.

8. While initially a Japanese phenomenon, Hikikomoriism happens all around the world.

9. While this is mainly an English speaking board both English and Japanese can be spoken on this board.

10. You must be a hikikomori or a recovering hikikomori to post here if you're not a hikikomori you will be banned.

New comers and outsiders please take these into consideration thank you.

so what about making a thread under the topic of the day routine

can I start my fellow hikkis, the one true fact which we all share it together is that we have no sense of time or even the days all the days we live is one day repeat itself over and over for months now

my day starts with

>eat some junk filthy food or whatsoever I'm going to find in the fridge

>take a shit, and a shower only if I felt like wanting it

siting on my lap, before I sitting while I'm on the path I keep on telling myself that I will do something positive today, but eventually it turning out to be hours of surfing on image boards instead of learning a little of the language as I decided, watching anime might be the only positive thing since I watching it dubbed and subed into the language which I want to learn as well as surfing on imageboards in fact I'm able to write this thread due to my months of lurking here and there due to the language which I want and wish to start learning is English

>fabbing more than 3-4 times

>eat something

>sleep at at least 3pm and wake up again 12Am and repeat

If you want some help in your hobbies such as if you somehow want to start some thing but you struggling as me to know where and how to start you can ask about it here and wish the other hikkis help you including me as well they might give me some tips in order to help me improve this language, though since they're natives I will go fuck myself somewhere I'm pretty sure, also how can I know my level?

So right now I have the equivalent of 400 dollars. Several months ago I payed that money for a service that I never utilized so I just got a refund.

I'm thinking what I can spend it on.

I'm content with my current computer hardware so an upgrade is unnecessary.

I was thinking of buying some video game console, but I'm afraid I might lose interest (like it's usual) and stop using it.

I'm no longer super interested in anime and only watch occasionally so I don't want any waifu figures.

I want ideas anons! What would you spend the money on?

Yes, I could just save it, but I don't want to.

As it's been a few months since OP started the thread, I wonder what he's spent it on?

As for what I'd do in OP's position, buy a kettle, if needed, and a $10 gaiwan and spend the remaining $390 on high-roast oolong and puerh tea. I'd then have enough tea and a cheap way to brew it to last me several winters.


Well, if you're buying online, shipping costs would cut down on what you could get. In that case, I'd probably buy an ebook.

I own 2 ps3 first gens which I got for $60 each (make sure they have the warranty label still on otherwise they may have been reflowed and will die in a month) and once CFW'd they are a terrific. I even installed OtherOS++ which was cool I heard someone got the RSX chip drivers working. Would highly recommend. Anything 4.81 OFW and below is CFW able with a network switch and a computer although I did mine before the crack and flashed mine with a teensy++ 2.0 and 360clip.

There are plenty of sites with game rips such as nicoblog.org with plenty of Mega links

About 2 weeks ago I got diagnosed with social phobia and bipolar. Only reason I finally got diagnosed was my mom insisted she come with me to an appointment that was originally just for medication (insomnia).

At 20 years old, it doesn't change much and I wasn't surprised at all. The psychologist also said I have some characteristics of autism, which was pretty amusing.

I've been playing fortnite nonstop, how about you?

As a way out, there were times when i didnt feel anything, like imagine walking from work or school (the only good part of my old life) youre not doing anything really, nor feeling anything youre just walking, that feeling of walking and being calm, thats a feeling but sometimes i didnt feel not even that, like i was watching a movie/cutscene in a vg, i knew what was going on and if you touch me i could "feel" it, but not really, the pain was the only way to pull my mind back to reallity i started playing with a cutter, i just scratch my arm with it until all the white powder was gone and my arm become a slime red mess, i pull me back here, it made feel like i was myself again and then when i poured alcohol on it…

I was free.

And since then i do it at least once a month, but when i started it was almost every day as a result i cant move my knees and toes as good as before (i hurt my legs cause the marks were always hide by my pants)

I have an interesting situation in which I have been seeing a mental health facility on govt'd bux for almost two years now. My first diagnosis was schizoaffective and when I asked for the financial assistance they said they had career fairs, which was a hard pass. Now my new diagnosis is bipolar and my schizoaffective is cleared, but it would only take 4 months of monitoring to apply for SSI. I applied once but they wanted stuff from me that I would have to call people to get so I let the application expire. Apparently, they will help me now with my new psych whereas my old psych knew nothing about financial benefits? Will report back if I get it.

I'm not asking for specifics since obviously you're talking about characters from your novel, but could you at least point to general directions or domains you imagine those fictional characters would be working in ?

Would it be based on opportunity, on commercial business, on exploitation of information..? I'm interested because I'm wrting a novel too.

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?.

I'm fortunate to have lenient parents I think its because they're libs

my mom is japanese and my dad is american though so I'm a hapa. Luckily I never grew up in japan and lived in america. Middle/high school was where my life got fucked up because of bullying (but its because I had social anxiety and ADD).

I don't really call myself american or japanese, or have any form of solid identity. What fucks me up the most though is the japanese side. Going to family visits to japan felt awkard to me, and I felt like my aunt etc. are passive aggressive towards me or secretly hates me because I'm a hapa and mentally ill. My grandfather had trouble recognizing me too because I didn't look japanese.

My grandfather is dying and soon there will be a funeral for him, so that means visiting japan again and I'm not sure if I should go.

I didn't have a deep connection with him, but he was part of the happy times of my childhood. Grandma's old house was really great, it was where my mom grew up and everything felt comfy.

>Do you blame your parents for you becoming a hikikomori?.

Absolutely. My dad was never interested in me so i was never thought how to be a man. My mom is a gloomy person who always thinks negatively when theres a problem. They never pushed me in school or help me achieve goals, when they were supportive it was weak. With this rickety foundation, its not surprising i amounted to nothing and slumped to isolation since graduating high school.

>Or are you thankful that they are supportive in providing you with whatever you need in your isolation?.

Nope. Its counterproductive since i want to stop being a hikki and make it a phase. Funny thing, I tried to integrate back to normal society by moving with my uncle.I tried getting a job, didn't work out since he wanted me to lie and if i did wouldve been in a no hire list for 5 years.

I did notice some disturbing things while i was there though, it seems the greater family isnt caring for my cousins proper which can lead them to having mental issues low confidence and do regretful things. It looks like im the only one that cares about their future so i cant really play games all day anymore.I have responsibilities now and if i have to work hard for peanuts just to make sure they go through life okay, so be it.

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.

These days I can say that I know English much more than my native language and I think I'm a bit closer to mastery. However, I still can't write as fluently as I want to ( If anyone have any suggestions regarding how to write fluently Please leave a reply)

I don't have anything to look forward too and I don't have any hobbies either. English has always been my hobby and I always wanted to improve it, but now that I'm capable of understanding practically 95% of English I grew sick of it. It isn't as challenging as it used to be. I'm no longer studying the language I'm enjoying it but that didn't last long though. I'm getting bored of reading books and watching movies. So I'm looking forward to find ways to write more fluently since it will be a bit challenging and fun again, But I don't know how maybe you guys know a way.

I really need to find a new hobby. I'm bored out of my mind staring at the wall for hours everyday.

Keep using the language and it should improve on its own over time. That's what I did, at least. In my case, I never had to study in the first place, it's just that as a kid, I had a lot more balls than I do now for some reason. I guess it's because I never questioned whether or not something was a waste of time, so I just ignored that I didn't know English and used it anyway. I had a dictionary, and then the translator on AltaVista, that I only used to translate single words.

I used that to understand video games and a lot of websites (a lot of GeoCities stuff, because those were still the cool days, and everything was awesome unlike today). I actually played some games in Japanese a little later as well. A few games I played didn't have English versions, but had English scripts on the internet (no idea who even made that, but I think they were on GameFAQs), so I could use that to figure out what was going on, basically using a language that I barely knew to get past another language that I especially didn't know.

I wish I could go back to being that crazy and learn Japanese using the same method (playing games that don't use kanji all that much because of hardware limitations, that would be doable), but I know how much time it takes to do that (and I did try to do it traditionally, but it just doesn't work, it takes way too much to just be able to use that mess of a language, but maybe this method would make it easier, I don't know). Sometimes kids can do some incredible shit just because they don't know what limits are and don't totally understand their own mortality. Now I always think about what would be the best way to use my time, so I don't do that kind of thing anymore. Maybe I posted this before, but it's a decent enough story, and it's relevant, so here it goes again. Basically, you learn what you use, and you don't even feel that you're doing it when you get good enough. If you don't use something, then learning it will be a chore until that changes.

4b287d  No.6738

I find myself always talking as fast as possible, and in as few words as possible, because I just want to spend as little time conversing as possible. Even online, when I chat because I want to (and do enjoy it), people always tell me I'm really unforthcoming and just say extremely little.

When I'm not playing vidya or posting online I'm reading into military history, since it's the only thing I really enjoy fully. Only problem in regards to that is that my knowledge is very expansive, and I think it's actually been bad for me, and kind of representative of all things in life as far as conversation is concerned. I could give a thousand words to describe what is being said, but I couldn't articulate it well to someone who doesn't have my brain, and they would stop listening after 50, so I just kind of dumb it down and say a tiny amount. Don't know what I'm getting at here anymore, but it just feels like my autistic tendency to say more than I need and with vocabulary that probably isn't fitting for regular conversation has just disappeared from attempts to 'fit in' and now I'm in purgatory, can't do anything right.

Certainly doesn't help my CIA nigger mummy keeps trying to push me and find out what I'm thinking, don't know what I can do to just get her to stop prying, I don't care what she has to say, she probably has nothing worthwhile to say about it either, and it's not "helping" either. Does she think I'm going to one of these days realise E=MC squared is incorrect or something

I'm having an interesting, opposite effect. My prior job before my mental breakdown involved legal, business, and medical language. From not talking with, I don't know how to phrase it other than "common folk", for prolonged periods of time, it becomes difficult to communicate with them. It's like I speak perfect English but they don't digest a single word I'm saying and try to interpret it differently. As they continue to misinterpret me, I become more elaborate with my language and try to indicate that my diction is precise and I am not trying to be roundabout with them in any way, but they typically don't understand and I shy out of my discussion and leave awkwardly.

This makes me realise how my dad fucked me up more than I thought

Was always very angry and demanding with me, and calling me an idiot for fucking up, certainly didn't help that I never wanted to learn to ride a bike or any of that, just wanted to play newgrounds games, which he entrenched undoubtedly

then he just became kind of distant - silently judging me, as he still does, just taking a very passive role in things, doesn't really try to do much to help me. Last I honestly recall was he told me that "you're not the only person in the world with problems you know that" (unprovoked, I hadn't said a word to him or anyone for weeks) and I don't think he's spoken to me since

my upbringing was probably better than 90% of this board, but still here so what's it fucking matter at the end of the day

I like staying up sometimes on armodafinil. It doesnt get you high, really. But you feel as awake as if you just got up for an extra 12 hours so if you do art or something you can stay up.

Doesn't matter, but be sure to not take anything for years / for life. Drugs should serve only temporarily.

>I've been a hikki off and on since I was 14. During my first time as a hikki, 2 years, my voice got harder and dropped in pitch and coarse hairs sprouted from mine face. My balls sag a lot lowere now, too. I shouldnt have spent all that time masturbating

Holy crap that hits so close to home i've been having the exact same problem for years now.

>>Chronic diarrhea

Only two posts? I'm honestly surprised. I was expecting way more hikkis to have gut issues, since it seems that it's closely related to anxiety and depression.

I feel bad everytime I eat.

I eat a lot of takeaways (more than is financially prudent, tbh), so I didn't think it unusual enough to mention.

Cleaning the room itself once every week or two is generally enough. It's definitely not a mess. Some people would maybe see it that way, but only because I'm surrounded by computers and electronics. I tend to keep everything within my reach. My main obsession is with being efficient, so I organize everything with that in mind as my first priority, even if I end up with wires all over the place. Still, it's about as optimized as it can be without spending more money. I could improve it if I bought a bunch of pipes. There are no wires attached to the ceiling, but it will probably happen at some point.

I do have some obsession with keeping things clean, but when it comes to something minor, like dust, I try not to clean too much because that would also be inefficient as well (cleaning things that are almost clean is kind of a waste of time), and I don't want to end up with a new obsession. I definitely care a lot more about keeping myself clean than anyone else I know, though.

It varies from person to person. Some people don't seem to care at all about their rooms. I care about it a lot, because it's where I live, and it's part of me to some extent. I have seen people that are extremely organized that don't seem to ever clean their stuff, though.


I am autistic myself, and yes, it can be the case, but I think it probably varies a lot from person to person. Autism seems to affect different people in different ways.

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

Do you take photos from your window or in your room /Hikki/?

I don't have a camera, so no. Even if I had one, I worry about someone possibly finding the picture and recognizing my room somehow, even though I know normalfags will never see my posts. If I lived on my own and no one knew what my room looks like, I wouldn't worry about that as much. It's just paranoia, but I worry about it anyway. If people find out where I post somehow, then I lose my online freedom as well.

Neither hot nor cold right now.

It rarely snows where I live, like a week of snow at most every 5 years.

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.

At parks would seem like it would only work if you were a parent or something meeting other parents randomly talking to people would be weird but fuck knows.

It's less weird if it comes from someone who dresses and acts like they have one of those super outgoing personalities, but the experience is still a bit jarring

how are you supposed to dress if you're outgoing I thought it was just personality that made the extrovert not the clothes

dc7778  No.6624


Extroverts just don't wear bland things. They wear clothes that have personality and are stylish but not always on-trend, and when you look at them you just get the impression they're exciting and fun. They're not self-conscious with their clothing choices and you can see it in what they wear

Being hikki caused anhedonia which may be helpful in doing everyday things, it's as if I'm on autopilot and as a result do not worry about others' thoughts. Although, it's not completely this way, perhaps it's a step. Very very slow progress.
