I have to say I was a NEET for like 2 years of my life because of extreme social anxiety. There were periods of time where I wouldn't leave the house for days. Thankfully I have gotten a little better and although I still have social anxiety, I'm working part time and studying now.


For those who don't know what NEET and hikikomori mean:

NEET: A NEET or neet is a young person who is "Not in Education, Employment, or Training".

Hikikomori: The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare defines hikikomori as people who refuse to leave their house and, thus, isolate themselves from society in their homes for a period exceeding six months.
neet and hikki here.i too suffer from depression,anxiety,agoraphobia,OCD and god knows what else.....i havent left my house in years! to the point that i no longer recognize my own city.the only time that i can go out is when i have to go to the docs.i dont have friends or anything of the kind and yeah....it sucks but medication can only go so far when you illnesses get severe

i did got better for awhile to get my high school diploma though


Hey dude I have been in a similar situation and I know it's very rough, but don't give up!! You can definitely get better but only if you want to of course. Have you tried seeing a psychologist?
i'm seen a shrink but she is pretty bad at counseling and the only meds that am currently taking is a benzo because if i take the other anti-depressants they will just screw me with the stupid side effects.i used to see a therapist when younger and she was good but had to leav-or rather they made me leave the clinic because i was already over 18 and that clinic was for teens only...so, yeah that was like a big while ago and for the record i do want to get better.i have tried to go out but the stupid panic attacks will come up all of the sudden and i also suffer from irritable bowel syndrome so you can imagine its not a pretty picture,bro


I have also tried taking medication for social anxiety but for some reason it never really worked for me. I think one of the most helpful things I did was CBT , it teaches you so many skills and strategies to overcome social anxiety. If you are interested, the name of the CBT audio series is "Overcoming social anxiety step by step" by thomas richards. I know how tough it is living with social anxiety, I wouldn't wish this on anyone, I still have pretty bad social anxiety but I'm working everyday to get better and not let it get in the way of me accomplishing my goals. Good luck man!! You can get better, never stop believing.
thanks for your kind words man,i really appreciate them but the whole CBT BY THOMAS RICHARDS is kind of expensive for me,bro but thanks anyways

It's sad to see alotta fellow members have been in these states before ,

I was practically a Hikikomori for 3 years, due to severe depression , I watched alot of anime by myself all alone back then.
Anime honestly helped and NHK had me relate with the character and not feel so alone in my thoughts and opinions .
Anyway, reccommend that shit if you're in that state or have been, Watamote's ahright too, especially if you were a lonely loser in high school ect.

In other words, good luck to ya all! Anime is great!
meeting misaki cant be really bad if you dont get out of your house lol

I'm a NEET, unfortunately. The crippling social anxiety and lack of education makes getting a job nearly impossible it seems. Oh, and I don't drive.

there wasn't a time I was a NEET or a hikikomori. I was always either in school or working (in a sense)

when I got out of the military back in 2011, I was borderline NEET, I was attending online classes for my bachelors, but I would basically stay home. I turned into a night owl, and I would go running early in the morning before the sun would rise, and be back when the sun came over the mountains. Then eat breakfast, shower, and sleep til the evening.

fast forward to today: constantly working long hours, I don't really socialize outside of work (unless it's to see the boyfriend) but that's about it >.<

I'm sure you're not, you may be a drunk I mean but that's not all you are :)

I hope you get over your drinking problems soon!

I used to have a friend who had alcohol problems (we're not friends anymore), he used to put himself down all the time and I think that was the main reason why he couldn't move on from the problems he was trying to drown with alcohol, please don't be like that :(

No , However in 2011 when I quit playing sports I didn't really came outside. I only played videogames and watched anime , but my best friends eventually got me out of the house and introduced me to basketball. Now I am most of the outside playing basketball or hanging out with friends.

I guess I'd probably be considered a neet, It's more because of health issues though (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Anxiety, depression) and I'm working on finding things that I can do. So I dunno.

Having a partner helps though... I don't think I'd be able to get out of bed most days if it weren't for my partner. I'd probably just spend my days just drifting in and out of sleep because of the pain/depression.

I was a neet between 2012 and 2014 because I couldn't get a job.
