If anything, I would be dealing with Hikikomori-like symptoms.
It isn't that I am unable to be social, as it is with most Hikikomori, so there are only certain traits that would apply to me.
I do pull away and become anti-social when I require time to deal with things in my own way.
I do work 80-90 hours a week, unlike most NEETs or Hikikomori.

Upon further reflection, I'm probably neither.
I just happen to become anti-social in order to recover from excessive exposure to the world.
This includes online forums, social media, and similar digital media outlets; as well as social scenes, events, and such.

We should all band together and pull ourselves out of neethood by making an anime about neets who meet on a forum and band together to pull themselves out of neethood by making an anime.

Both

Depression, anemia and social anxiety are not a good combonation.
Plus I'm in pain a lot and have 'absence seizures' as Doctors call it a lot.

I've never actually been either, but in my apartment last year we liked to joke that we were all hikikomori since for the most part we weren't too social and generally didn't go to apartment complex events. (My apartment complex is student housing for people studying one or another language, with each apartment being assigned to a particular language. Mine is Japanese, so if someone joked about hikikomori the rest of us knew what was meant.)

Was until January of last year...

My brother is a Hiki-NEET. I know what it is like to have someone who hoards all the dirty dishes, lives in a filthy room, and looks super unattractive. Don't even mention his behaviors...

'I wish I could be but I need money to live, and I work 6 days a week 10 hours a day. No time, bills do no money, and health starting to fail welcome to the real world.

But at least now that Trump is in office economically life is starting to get a little better.

I am an Elite NEET.

No seriously, I'm off work on a fixed income trying desperately to get back to work. I don't understand how someone would willingly pursue such a lifestyle.

To add to this, I also don't understand why people--upon finding out that you live on a fixed income--think you must want it or are too lazy to do something else. Government assistance isn't enough to live on by itself and once you are on it, it is incredibly difficult to get off and actually support yourself. If you need the high-end medical coverage that often comes along with it (if you have a disability), forget about it unless you go from the dole straight to a job with stellar private insurance.

Well I'm lucky there. I live in the land of taxpayer funded health care (and yes I still pay taxes) and my fixed income is an insurance paid Long Term Disability package. It is a bit of trap since I can only get off it safely by going back to my old job. Hence the three years of enforced idleness while I convince my employers to take me back on.

Genesis 2:18: "It is not good for man to be alone".

If you look at a lot of these crazies who are shooting people and stuff, many of them are loners and don't have many meaningful social bonds like at church or a fraternal group. Psychologists also point out that isolation increases risk of depression, anxiety, and suicide.

If you consider yourself a NEET or hikikomori then I recommend finding a social group you can plug into at least once a week. Church is a great place to start, especially if they have small group bible studies or life groups.

Blame people for excluding them if anything or them living in bad places.
finding a social group to plug yourself into is easier said then done just like walking a tightrope
