I'm a fucking neet myself, so is this thread for neets who don't want to recover like in the other thread?

No. 859860

>>859851
Don't want to recover/ don't want to take steps yet to recover. I'm at the point where I just want a long break from trying to recover, and return to old ways. But that would seem anti-recovering so I just made a new thread for neets who don't want to change. Sometimes it's too late to recover for some people. Hope they don't feel too alone, even if it's through a screen humans need community.

Question for neets: if there was no internet, no radio, no tv, no computers, no books, no games no media, etc, would you still be a neet?

No. 859949

What's the line between neet and just loser? For example, parents who support you but require you to work one day a week at a part time. And the rest of the time you're living like a hermit. Is it actually just "not in education employment or training"? Or is it more of a lifestyle/mindset?

I'm technically NEET though I spend my time freelancing for crypto-donations and building a portfolio.

Neetdom is a luxury tbh, your parents have to be nice and rich enough to care for you. It can be miserable or great depending on whether you're depressed.

No. 860327

I've quit every job i've ever had besides like one after a month or two because bosses are just complete and utter assholes. Unfortunately, I have a car payment now and like I could do a delivery app but I'm still terrified of driving and don't know directions for shit. I used to think that people didn't want to be my friend because i couldn't drive, but now i just realize that i really don't have any friends and leaving the house makes me extra paranoid.

NEET life was really fun for me when I was a highschool dropout but after a long enough period of time, the depression gets so bad. It's probably ok if you have rich parents, though. I'm twenty four now, and I don't have that luxury, so I'm pretty much putting off the work life as long as I can because I can't do a 9-5 without having a breakdown. Do any of you live on disability?

Now I have a job and a bf, I socialize every day, but when I was a NEET I felt so much more individual and creative. I feel like getting a job and bf were beneficial overall but sapped my sense of identity and individuality. When I was a NEET I drew fanart (I used to get recognized by developers when I would make vidya fanart, feltgood), watched a ton of movies and series, and wrote a lot, too – all things I could do for little to no money.

Can't stop thinking about bad interview experiences I've had in the past. I had one where the manager berated me because I didn't have experience in the shitty HRIS system they used because I'd never held a similar position before. Even though the person at the first interview told me I'd be perfect for the role. Makes me feel like I will never get hired. Every time I get to the second interview stage I never get the role and it just gets my hopes up. Why do I fail even when I've prepared with notes, rehearsed common interview questions in STAR format, show up professionally dressed? I think it's because I am ugly and have bad social skills (I used to be bullied in school). Who wants an ugly awkward woman working for them? Yeah I wouldn't hire me either. I should've taken the hint when I had so much trouble getting a required internship in college I had to delay graduation by a semester.

I got sick right as I finished high school, was thrown into a rehabilitation facility for some time by my own parents because they didn't want to help me and told lies to the staff to have me admitted, and now I live like a neet because I feel like I don't have enough psychological strenght to work a job I don't like for so much time. Weighing on my parents makes me feel guilty, but at the same time I think they deserve it for what they've done. I make some money with art and I plan to make it into some sort of job. I also take care of my dog. Honestly doing things at my own pace feels nice, and the end results may not even be that different from having a random minimum wage job. I've never had friends even when I was not a neet, so the loneliness doesn't bother me that much.

i think it's the attitude. A loser doesn't give a fuck about working, is happy to live of other people's money, but is otherwise a normal person, with friends and relationships.
A neet is more reclusive, imo, either by depression or by choice. But i read neet as it is normally used as a synonim of hikikomori.

I didn't like being a neet, because i hate being under my parents thumb (even though they are getting more generous and patient with age), and i like working if it is something worthwhile. Media bores me.
But honestly, if someone drops a wageslave shitty job to become a neet, and uses their free time to work on something that makes them happy or needed, like caring for an elderly, or becoming a handyman or farmhand or housewife/husband, or working gigs, i can't really judge. Wageslaving in shitty soulsucking jobs is fucking hell.

I love NEET life. I think many people are just wired for it but society makes us all have guilty complex about such compulsion. I loved school, or rather learning, but I always hated working. If only going to school is a job, if only I could just collect knowledge for money, then I’d consider it. But be it manual labor or white collar, normalfagging absolutely destroys my mental health, by the 9th month of any given job, I’d be zooted at work constantly.
NEETdom is double edged sword though. It is very easy to fall depressive and get stuck in a cycle of misery if mismanaged, you’re also very vulnerable if you don’t have support network.
But with just a little discipline and finesse, it’s the best. I study whatever the fuck I want, I have time to eat well and exercise, to indulge in hobbies and hone new skills. I actually practice time management and goal setting on my own volition.
Luckily I don’t have to struggle for money atm. I draw for spending cash for fun but that’s about it. Although I made decent amount of seeding cash from meme stocks and crypto this past year so I’d like to take investing more seriously.

I’d like to hoard enough money to just fuck off to a third world coastal town and grow old with some friends and cats.

does anyone else struggle with an absence of ego? I mean ego in the basic esteem sense. I have no desire to be seen or heard, no desire to speak or be spoken to. no desires at all really. no social media, nothing but anonymity, and even then only a passing interest in expressing a thought coming from an “I”. it’s like by not participating in society, I’ve forgotten my name. even worse, by not participating, I feel I deserve to forget it. to lose my name and lose my mind too.

I'm 24 too. I work a 9-5 and have had breakdowns but I work from home so it's not as bad. It's a boring as fuck admin job but I can afford to live alone in peace, not with my parents. But before this job I was on disability from my old job due to mental health reasons. When I came back no one noticed so I just didn't work, got paid for 2 months (plus the pay on disability) then put in my notice kek. So I was considerably NEET for a few months. It was ok on disability because I was going to therapy in the mornings and in the afternoons I would just watch tv, draw, read, do whatever and not have to stress about work. I don't think I could get on disability again unless I had a psychotic break unfortunately. It seems like a lot of work to get semi-permanent disability, you need paperwork from doctor visits spanning years along with diagnoses, references, etc. and I don't go to treatment regularly. Maybe if you have a lot of professional help in your past and start to keep track of it you could build a case.

NTA but it's more nuanced

Life in the west from 1945-1970 was objectively better than life now. For starters, you weren't derided as being a loser for just leaving school and going to work in a factory, people were much more accepting of class differences back then than they are now. There was less obesity, you didn't need a car to function, rent and homes were cheap and people were genuinely healthier and happier. Things were more social. And introversion was reserved for Ted Kaczynski tier assburgers and not for 20% of the population.

In the west now, materially we're better off than most parts of history, but I do think we're degraded due to our cancerous stress inducing lifestyles. Between the internet addictions, shit diets, isolating lifestyles and extreme oversocialization, we definitely do suffer more than the generation before us. It's a new type of suffering we really haven't come to deal with yet.

I think it's normal to want to work, but not in the way we work in capitalism. Working back in the day was ok because the rewards were instantaneous. When I went to help on family members farm I enjoyed working and being exhausted at the end of the day, because my efforts were clearly and quickly rewarded. Nowadays ppl (if they're lucky!) sit infront of a box indoors doing super abstract work for their company. If they're not lucky it's lifting boxes in a warehouse until they get injured then fired and homeless. Employers don't even care about paying ppl enough to just survive to keep working. Of course it's super demoralizing and makes ppl not want to work at all. I find lots of neets had horrible jobs, whether it was being super over worked, or mentally abused.

I've stayed at home so long as a NEET that I hadn't realized how quickly the place where I live was undergoing development and changing. Very strange feeling when I go outside now, I feel like I don't even live in the same neighbourhood anymore, makes me want to stay home even more now.

Spot on. I just finished a great audiobook called Womens Work, which is about the overlooked history of textiles. It really painted a lovely picture in my mind of ancient women working together to process fibers and weave on their looms, creating intricate cloths & patterns for them and their families to wear. They'd work all day technically but they'd do it on their own terms, often outside while chatting and watching their kids play.
Pre-currency work, when the gap between elite and common folk was much smaller, was when work was most rewarding.

Meanwhile all the work I've ever done has been a meaningless job exactly as described in the book Bullshit Jobs: A Theory.

Because there's a different dynamic: other women will judge you, while the man who loves you, will accept you as you are. As someone who has been somewhat in this situation, women will judge you, from the way you look - the clothes you wear, the makeup you wear, or don't, to what you say and what you do - if it's according to their taste, they like you, if not, they will tear you apart… For some people, it's much harder to establish a true friendship than to find true love.

NTA but if you're a housewife with no formal training or job experience there's a huge risk in divorcing since you couldn't support yourself and possible kids.

There are definitely women here who do want to be one or are, homemakers that is. But I think that being in or having been in this situation helps you see all its flaws, and you're definitely right about all that can go wrong if you don't find the right person. You raise good points every woman should at least consider before becoming dependent on anyone. Putting all your eggs in one basket is dangerous, especially if you don't come from a solid support system you can return to if shit hits the fan one day. People who act like everyone needs to be a wheatfield tradwife to be happy are just coping and/or probably not even actually housewives themselves, everyone is different and it depends on who you meet. NEET or not, there's no one way for women to live. So many posters on this board and /snow/ recently seem to act like this is not the case, but you are right.

I’ve been a neet off and on a few times since I was about 16 (25 now). My parents kicked me out at 18, so my brief stints of unemployment were funded by my own savings and/or whatever guy I was dating at the time. My depression is so bad right now, I want to quit my job and be a neet again but no savings or simp bf. Life is hard, I miss never leaving the house and sleeping whenever I want

He's become increasingly resentful, jealous and bitter over the years despite me taking care of all the errands, cooking, cleaning, etc. He has his own mental health issues and shut-in tendencies, and I always try to be as loving and understanding as I can, but I can feel him breaking and he desperately wants our roles to be reversed.

Mid-life crisises are basically unavoidable regardless of whether you've been wiling away your time or making progress in your career. I think in a lot of cases, having achieved a lot actually makes you feel worse, either because you feel like you have nothing left to accomplish or because you've been exposed to an even more successful class of person to be jealous of.

There are a lot of valid NEET worries, but this type of anxiety is something that's going to happen one way or another so you kind of just have to confront it head on imo.

I was a NEET for most of early adulthood but finally escaped it and was doing ok for myself, even if it was a bit less than people my age. Then not even 3 years later, I developed a physical disability that leaves me housebound and unable to work and now I'm back in the NEET hole, this time not by choice. I want to kill myself every day, not just because my disability makes life unbearable, but just that I had such a short period of success and no chance to get it back. I know I should be glad I managed to do it at all. But god. It hurts so much to look back on. Especially since I can't enjoy the things I once did in my first round of NEET life.

I dropped out of university in 2015 when it became too much for me to deal with on top of ADHD, depression, and dealing with multiple consecutive deaths in my family at the time. Tbh even then I was just taking random courses because of the societal pressure to have a degree in order to be seen as worthy and intelligent. There were a few courses that really interested me, but I still have no idea how people decide on a career path. Nothing jumps out at me and screams "this is something I can see myself devoting my life to."

I've always struggled with just finding jobs I can "do" because of my social anxiety. I know I wouldn't be able to handle a position directly on the front lines in customer service dealing with unpredictable and irritable people, but 90% of entry level positions are in retail and I've never made it past the interview process anyway apart from volunteer positions and one year I helped out at the store my mom worked at bc they needed extra people at Christmas time.

At this point I really need the money and I was almost ready to bite the bullet and look more seriously for a part-time position somewhere, but then the pandemic hit and my mom developed an autoimmune disorder that scarred her lungs to the point where she can no longer breathe properly and even struggles just speaking some days. She's heavily immunosuppressed to stop it from progressing, and if she even got a mild case of covid I don't think she would survive it. So now I'm in a position where even if I did want to go out and get a job, I'm not willing to risk her health and life by going out in public then coming home to her everyday.

I've tried to make money online but everything I've attempted so far has failed lol. I tried designing some KDP notebooks but it's already too saturated with greedy people who just copypaste stock images, I tried selling adoptables on FA but nobody is really interested because they're sfw and I'm not comfortable drawing fetish art, I've made some gaming videos but I don't know if I'll ever be able to make it to the 1000 sub mark to be able to monetize (though that doesn't really matter, I'm just doing it for fun anyway and I don't want to focus on numbers).

I don't really know where to go from here, I don't want a "real" job or to go back to school. I just want to be able to make a small living sharing my art and passion with the world. Especially now there's something I really want to save up 2500CAD for but I have no idea where to even begin to get the money.

I can't work customer facing jobs either. I actually tried one and thought I'd get over the anxiety but after a while there I was still constantly fucking up and couldn't handle the pressure anymore. Another problem with my anxiety is passing the interview. I was lucky with that job because they were desperate so there were barely any questions, but in the past when I had to do a normal interview with questions I failed miserably and it was incredibly humiliating. Somehow Amazon has zero warehouse slave openings in my area right now but if there was I would go for it because there's no customers and no interview in that job.

I'm not technically neet because I have a part time low interaction job so I can live on my own. But I have zero friends and never socialize, even before covid. Someone randomly made plans with me and she's supposed to come over tonight with some other people. I'm levitating out of my body with anxiety like my heart is beating really heard and my face feels numb. I refuse to believe she's actually coming and it's getting sort of late and I'm going to feel really bad but I'm also scared of these people showing up because no one but me has ever been in my house and I won't be able to escape and go home. So I'm just drowning in two conflicting sources of anxiety because it's going to either be a disappointment or a disaster. I just want it to be over so I can feel normal again even though normal sucks.

Ntayrt but I feel you on the customer-facing jobs thing. I’ve had a variety of customer service-oriented jobs, figuring working in these roles would help me with my social anxiety. Nope. I maybe learned how to be a little more conversational with strangers, but without fail, I still struggle through each interaction, regardless of how long I’ve been doing it. It never seems to get any easier. At this point I’m just ready to accept the fact that I need to avoid any job that has me work with the public.

Anywho, I returned to neetdom at the beginning of October after managing to work consistently for nearly three years. I haven’t been doing a lot of job searching due to terrible job listings and my newly developed fear of dying at work or on the way to work. I’m trying to work on that. I’m using the free time to get back into drawing so that I can feel productive and possibly open up an avenue for income in the future.

Hate to burst your bubble but if you leech of a man he'll resent you and make your life hell. He's going to expect more than a clean house, meal and pussy. He at the very least will want you to pop out kids or do something other than be terminally online. You're going to turn into his emotional punching bag when he has a bad day at work or one of his friends make fun of him for supporting a leech.

Nta but I had this happen. He was so happy to have a gf at first, a clean house when he got home, someone to cuddle and fuck and just hang with. Dude had been single for years before me so I was the thing turning his life around just by being in his house and pulling a bit of my own weight. I was a blessing. I thought he was one too. A perfect pairing, filling in the gaps each one of us needed help with.

Oh how that changed over time. Resentment, being normal one minute and taking every bit of frustration out on me the next. No explanation for the mood swings. No apologies ever. Silent treatment. Shit slid in so slowly it fucked me up and my self esteem was on the floor. I went from being appreciated for just existing in his life to that bullshit. It was a far fall from grace. We always had an agreement on how things would work.. I kept up my part from beginning to end. He just changed his mind over time and thought he'd emotionally punish me rather than get straight with me. He ruined my confidence to a point where leaving was honestly really daunting. The world… facing it alone when he'd slowly convinced me I'm an absolute tard who needs him to function, fun times.

On leaving I went from my lowest point, like should I just rope myself point.. to the weight of the world being lifted off my shoulders. I realised I'd had a knot in my stomach before this, a constant knot. I woke up one morning in my new house with no knot and it hit me how bad I had it before. How blind you can be when your brain is fried from just trying to cope with the loss of control. The fucking relief of waking up alone. He was very purposefully trying to emotionally fuck with and set off muh anxiety because he knew he'd changed the goalposts for what a partner needs to bring to the table and I couldn't be that. I had shakes and developed a facial tic from the mental fuckery. He knew I couldn't suddenly reenter work after a several year gap and a decline in my ability to face people or not shake in peoples presence.

The risks of being a neet. My dad thought I had a blessed life with this guy. From the outside he sure liked for people to assume that.

Hey guys, do you have any idea on how to stay fit as a NEET?

I am waiting for college in September, having finished high school in November (our school system is quirky), and can only get a job post January. For now I will be working (i hope) and getting another qualification, focusing on my instrument for those uni points.

I go to soccer weekly and do bodyweight workouts most days, and walk. Soccer is over until mid January though, and walking is fine, but it’s the same everyday. When you get out of the house, you’re in a busy road. We don’t have gardens, I’m tired of suburb walks, and the middle of town is destitute and unsafe, like half shops are empty and you will get stalked or harassed. I just feel a bit trapped. It was so easy in school because you get a walk by walking to school, you can go to a club, or the gym after school, and you see people every day. And I don’t like just going for walks because men will yell at you from their cars, there are molesters in both parks who went after both women and little boys, and there was a dead body in the pond so it’s ruined for me. It just feels like a bunch of factories, suburbs, and dodgy parks.

I know I’m lucky to have a roof over my head, but I feel trapped in this town. I hope to learn to drive, but mostly, how do I burn off energy and get out when there’s not much to do? Get a manual labour job? Go to zumba at church with old ladies? Should I ask to stay with a relative who lives in a better town? It would be nine months pre university, we get along, and the change would be nice.

Sometimes I seriously think about getting a job because the people I'm with insult and humiliate me often and it's making me suicidal. But then I remember that I had jobs before and I just kept having panic attacks every day. Something about doing the same thing every day for hours without time for anything else sends me into full blown panic attacks (and I also lose appetite/get nauseous) and I don't know how to avoid it. I wish I could just be content with working like anyone else but something's not right and I can't do it. For now I earn money here and there but I can't say it's a job. Any anons with the same experiences?
I've been sick for a long time and became a neet because I was mentally exhausted. I wish I could rest properly but at the same time I don't deserve it, people let me know that and I get even more ashamed. I don't know how to get out of this one.

Also I have fun talking to them and joking with them initially but then they always ask me to send a selfie or webcam chat with them which makes me uncomfortable and basically ruins it when I refuse.

When I had a job I had to wake up at 6 am and get in bed at ~9:30 pm to fall asleep at 10 pm and get 8 hours of sleep. It felt like being in prison having to go to bed to so early and I couldn't even stay up on weekends because I had to maintain the schedule. I've always had problems with my sleeping schedule, for example in high school I was always exhausted and would be late 20 minutes to school everyday. As a NEET I've had so many problems maintaining a consistent sleep schedule too. I believe I have either Delayed Phase Sleep Disorder (natural nocturnal sleeping pattern) or Non 24 Sleep Disorder (constantly shifting sleeping pattern). However for 2 weeks I've now forced myself to maintain a daytime schedule because when I have a noctural schedule my parents start talking about me being disappointment but they leave me alone when it's normal.

When people complain about NEETs one complaint I see a lot is that it's likely leeching off your parents, but I never read/hear of others who are a NEET mainly because of their parent who enjoy their child NEETing. Parents can be codependent too. My dad has a job, but he prefers me being a NEET so I'll stay at home with him and be there when he gets back.

This is something I could never understand. Parents duty is to teach kids basic life skills, that's how mankind existed all these years. Parents taught their children skills so they could survive. Why the fuck parents don't do it anyomre? If you are lucky, you will figure it out by yourself, but if not, you're fucked.

I was in the same situation except my mother wouldn't let me even try to learn about how to do things.

Because of this I always felt so weird and embarassed, because I felt guilty for not being able to do some things, but what am I supposed to do?

What I really needed was intervention or counselling at age 12-13 when I started exhibiting signs of mental illness instead of pacifying me with unlimited internet time and hoping everything will sort itself out. My parents thought sending me to university would fix me and start me on the path to normiedom. It didn't and when I got to 4th year suddenly they started asking why I'm such a failure with no job, no life skills, no friends, can't drive, etc. Now they think what I need is to go to a Master's program and that will fix me, when they should know graduate school is highly stressful and I absolutely couldn't cope with that.

Same. I've always felt like an alien outsider. And everytime I've made progress there's been setbacks. Like a damn rubber band I always bounce back to being a shut in NEET. Maybe it was meant to be. I feel uncomfortable and trapped in any other state.

I can get by just fine on benefits - forever. And I'm not sure how to feel about that. My entire life could pass me by so easily.

AYRT. I dunno about you but I never really felt I had a direction in life anyway, and that every attempt was sort of me coping or trying to larp as a normie. Like you, an alien. Every time I would say I didn't wanna deal with people, normies just talked down on me and reminded me that dealing with people was just part of life. Couldn't handle it.
Now I just pretend to be a cool hermit and learn things on my own time. I'd rather do this than be a 9-5 slave honestly.

It was super easy for me because of the country I live in. Play up the mental health factor, feel no shame about it. I hope you can reach financial security. I had aspirations for a while but when I imagined myself actually doing the whole 9-5 thing I was prepared to literally larp all day every day like an actor. And I realized that's not possible without going insane. My last attempt at working led to this sort of meltdown. Because I had truly realized I can not do it at all and probably never will. My many years long delusion of ''if only I do this and that I can be a normie too'' were completely shattered by reality, it would never happen. Will never be me.

Let's keep doing things on our own time. If you can get on disability, then figure out a way to make everyday life bearable. Still haven't found my recipe for that but working on it. People won't really believe you when you say you don't want to deal with people, they'll always think it's a cope because they can't imagine it themselves. They get enough joy out of it for the negatives to be worth it. I don't and I assume you don't either.

The issue that I'd worry about (and get a back up plan going for) is the same as a alot of straight women who get a partner who allows them to live the neet life.. It's great while you have it and you can only hope it lasts but if an unexpected break up happens tomorrow (or down the line) will you be ok or will you be stranded and struggling? Make sure you have something or someone to fall back on and that they don't become your everything. That's an easy trap to slowly fall into when you're neet.

Break ups blind-side you sometimes. I think realistically everyone should feel like they'd be able to manage ok with or without their partner. Be careful not to fall into agoraphobia or a state of worrying dependence over time. I've been in crisis after an ex seemingly changed overnight and secretly had lined up my replacement essentially. In the long run it was a blessing that got me my independance back and made me face my issues but it was rough going at the time. It took years for me to become that dependant on him and then the guy pulled the rug out from under me in a split second. I was far from my home town, out of touch with family, isolated, no income, no plan, most of all no confidence or belief in myself. Hope for the best but also plan for the worst case too.

Aw you're so lucky. How did you approach online dating while being a NEET? I'm way too embarrassed. Like what did you say when she asked about your occupation? I feel like I don't deserve to date when I don't have anything to offer like a career or education. Like a man would be embarrassed to tell his parents about his NEET gf. I hope things go well for you and your gf.

Mish is a NEET recluse. Most of her vlogs are going shopping, in her apartment or at the gym. It gets a bit repetitive but it's relatable. She was recently diagnosed with autism (although I don't think she is) so I don't see her situation improving.

I see people who get paid by doing nothing - like exchanging emails, doing phone calls and sitting on meetings - not even participating
And making money. Not just money - decent money. And receiving job offers
I don’t understand
I can’t understand
What should I do
I am feeling horribly anxious even browsing job hunter sites
Even when I apply, I receive nothing, which is ok, I am not afraid being rejected a job
But the whole corporate culture, this normie linkedin shit I just can’t bear, I don’t know
I did have various jobs and gigs, but they are so irrelevant, I don’t know if I should put them all in my cv
Just how people are working.

ive been a NEET since high school, i tried college but went in absolutely unprepared with out even buying books before (im retarded i didn't know that was a thing?) and couldn't really afford it and owed 5k still so dropped out within a week (none of my family would co-sign for loans). i have a lot of half siblings but none of them have ever considered helping me with anything cuz they don't like my mother and i think consider me a drug addict because i smoked pot for awhile (i don't smoke anymore and don't even like it i'm just severely mentally ill and needed to check out of my life). i also dealt with some alcoholism problems for awhile in private but quit that on my own also. i live with my disabled mother who's also been one of my main abusers my whole life and also tries to blame me for the abuse i faced at the hands of my (now dead) brother. i tried working one job at a fast food chain working drive thru but i cried every day and although everyone was nice and the work wasnt that bad it was unbearable and i actually fell physically ill and had to quit after about two weeks. i think im an autist but i've tried looking into getting an evaluation with my case manager but she only seems to be able to try and help me get a general psych eval, which i've been trying to get for months now to no avail. i've also had two different case managers over the last 4 years and neither of them have been able to help me get a job, a license, or further myself any way in life. i was diagnosed with BPD at 19 in the psych ward while in the midsts of some of the worst of my substance abuse issues and i just don't feel like i fit the criteria anymore, and the ones i do i feel like could be attributed to my suspected tism. i also fell thru the cracks my whole childhood, they even somehow put me into special ed in elementary school without a diagnosis? idk me and my case manager are trying to get my school records now because im applying to disability. i also have agoraphobic tendencies and only leave the house to go to two different stores near my house or go see my ex boyfriend. i guess i just wanted to vent and ask if theres any other NEETs on here on disability or applying for it? i also just generally don't understand these system type things i don't even know who diagnosed me with BPD i don't understand how they let me go to college with money owed still i just don't really understand anything in life cuz my parents were really bad drug addicts growing up and never had jobs. it also sucks people just telling me repeatedly i should get a job when if it was that easy i would just do it. i've been struggling for years and years and it just feels like no one sympathizes with me when i really can't help the circumstances i was born in. all my sisters escaped poverty by marrying men with rich families. im in the US and one of my sisters moved in with her now husband when she was 15 and he was in his like 50s. they have enough money they could buy me a car or help me in some way, her husband even bought cars for all my siblings, but i guess i just don't matter to them. my mother also has fairly well off siblings but i guess since she's an addict she doesn't deserve help. please nonas wish me luck with this disability thing it really seems like my only chance to keep surviving and not just off myself.

I feel like I'm regressing. I did actually go to the gym today but after that I wanted to throw up I was so stressed about people potentially watching me. I hate social anxiety the way I deal with it is to just leave the place I'm at but I can't always do that. I hung out with some mutuals (not actually friends, just people happen to be in the same place) but hearing about their lives getting better than mine makes me feel lonelier in their company and want to die. I gave a job I'm tired of doing and want to quit. And a degree I'm not using. Sorry I'm technically not a full blown NEET i just need to vent i feel like I'm cracking.

Sometimes I think I want to return to work because the stagnant feeling sucks. But the anxiety is nauseating. All of my experiences in a professional workplace has been abusive as fuck. Why am I surrounded by so many bullies, male and female. What is it about working for a firm or corporate that makes people so fucking soulless and sociopathic. I am unable to mask around coworkers because they are just too different from me, white, conservative, and religious. I can’t pretend to fit in with those people so I just keep to myself and I think that marks me as an outsider and a subject for disdain.

I was slow,couldn't get anything done,didn't know what to do and it was really hard for me to work in general and I had to rely on my coworkers which I feel really bad about.

What did you try? Social security and disability? It takes a long time and a lot of denials before you get it and you usually need a lawyer.
Were you in special ed during grade school? That can count for something too. If you can get it through your insurnace maybe you can get some sort of neuropsych testing done to prove what might be wrong. For developmental disabilities or autism you can get help though Department of Developmental Services in the US.
I feel you though…Unfortunately a lot of doctors are just pill pushers and don't really care about diagnosis. It's a lot of work to put in just to get some goddamn help and not everyone is willing to hear you out but having some semblance of security is really worth it.

I think it was SSI. At the time I was younger like between 23-25 can't remember exactly. I don't have a lot of documentation of my issues because a lot has not been treated and I hated the help that I got and gave up and I take no meds. In like 4th grade I started a special ed class that was like a hour or so but had regular class as well until high school. There were other kids like me who seemed normal but there were also some legit retarded kids depending on my grade/class that year as well. I had to have special help to graduate because I couldn't pass my math tests. Good luck on getting disability anon.

What are your embarrassing NEET moments when facing the general public and how do you usually react or respond? What explanations do you give?
I'm a bit of a sperg so I always feel the need to answer things honestly and I can't hide my emotions when this embarrassment happens. When people try to make small talk with me and ask what I do it's humiliating. Dentists, hairdressers, it's unavoidable. I feel like this kind of nosy invasiveness about life is on-brand for being in burgerland vs other countries but maybe I'm mistaken.
I had a dental assistant who for years would try to fix me with unwarranted advice. Just the usual, how about you do this, what about trying that. I was happy when I lost my dental insurance and never had to see her again kek.
I got grilled by a family acquaintance at some funeral asking what I do for work, and when I answered I don't do anything, she gave the usual boomer reasoning of how everyone has got to do something. Fuck, if only they knew.

I'd always buy a shit ton of yogurt every time I went too on top of looking disheveled and awkward so I always wondered if I earned a reputation with her or her coworkers as being weird yogurt girl.

Because in my experience, people do NOT treat you with the same level of respect as when you seem employed. If I have to go to the doctor's or dentist I wear my old office casual clothes and pretend I'm still a secretary so they treat me like a human being instead of a retarded little girl that failed to launch or a loser burnout. Also I feel more confident when I'm more put together and adult looking as well.

Yeah… as a NEET of 8 years, I didn't bother posting because it seems like most of these girls don't even know what being a NEET is. "I'm a neet but I got to my job everyday" shit was just annoying to read. I get being a wagie is probably exhausting but I hate hearing how you're more functional than me in a thread for losers…

I think my family is getting tired of me but if I talk about trying to get on disability for my (admittedly awful) health, they tell me I'm just lazy. They won't let me get diagnosed with autism or depression or EDS because they say I just want a label to excuse my laziness even though I was an overachiever before having a psychotic break and my health slowly deteriorating almost a decade ago. If they throw me out, I don't know what to do. I can't rely on a man, I'm not attracted to them, even after the conversion therapy attempts.

Oh lord this. When I read of a NEET or someone having Agrophobia or extreme social anxiety, then they go, "Well I work" or "I do social thing".
My brain cannot take it or understand. I'm In my later 20's. I have never had a job and I don't think I could even be capable. My brain feels like it's slowly rottening and I'm aware of every single thing going on. I think everyone see's my every single flaw. That I'm just an ugly monster leaving a cave, even though I speak the same language of those around me, I don't understand it the same way they do.
I know it's weird and wrong to think this way, but it's like, "Damn, I'm proud of you. For being like me but being able to function, I don't feel I can" but at the same time i do have some resentment. I guess it's like misery loves company. If you are in the same shitty place as me, I feel more comfortable discussing it because you understand.

I struggle with this feeling everyday. My family went from being proud of me to sort of just barely tolerating me. I spend a lot of time almost mourning who I used to be. I have a lot of "I wish I could go back" fantasies. But that me is long gone.

>>1191319
I could, but since I live with them I think it could cause tension and I want to avoid that as much as possible. My NEETing is already enough of an issue, you know? Not like I have any money to my name, still have loans to (eventually?) pay off. I have no other place I could go if they get tired of me since I pushed all my old friends away years ago. I think at the end of this year, if they still don't listen to me, I'll just do it secretly and deal with the consequences. I wish they didn't see it as being weak. It's not like I was lazy before any of this, so I don't get it. Thanks for that suggestion, nonnie.

I could have written this myself. I'm sorry you're dealing with the same feelings. It just feels nice to know someone can relate when I feel so unnaturally fearful of the world compared to most people. I know it's not healthy but other than disability, I don't know any baby steps to get out of this. I feel like I'm too far gone into hermit mode to even try graduating from NEETdom, so I'm just coasting through life.

Thanks for the replies. It feels nice to be able to express myself to people who understand.

I hate trying to explain why I'm a NEET to normies. I get the usual "Well you have to realize that you have to deal with people your whole life and it's unavoidable" patronizing comments. Like no fucking shit, I'm not retarded. It's just harder for more and I will do everything I can to avoid it.

I have had jobs before but I barely functioned and didn't last. The only one I liked was mostly independent. When I dealt with too many people I shut down. My coworkers would get on my case for it, or if I'd try to interview for jobs and express I prefer working independently, I'd get the same speech. I think people like to perpetuate this idea of resilience that applies to everyone, but some people just don't have it. Like the whole 'bullying builds character' bullshit.

The ppl who go on about resilience usually are well off and never had any real problems. It's just a different flavor of the pull yourself by the bootstraps.

Streaming has not been a "real" job for me and I don't earn enough with it to make a living. I used to work and study but it all came crashing down when I had a panic attack and broke up with my ex.

I want to have my life together. Do my skincare, wake up at a decent hour, go out, work, travel, get new tattoos, go to the hairdresser etc etc. At least I talk to alot of people in vocal or texts but ye.

I don't consider people on disability to be true NEETs unless they completely scammed their way into being on welfare, if someone is genuinely too disabled to work that's fair.

But ignoring that, your mother lets you live there, right? Is that not a form of parental support? Obviously not every NEET has a well off family but it's significantly more likely that they do just by virtue of their circumstances. Less privileged people wouldn't be able to afford it at all, their parents wouldn't be able to afford it, they wouldn't tolerate the presence of a non contributing adult just because they have anxiety or whatever. Anon was acting like NEETs become that way because they don't have middle class, loving parents but it's obvious many if not most do and they must or they couldn't be NEETs at all.

Some NEETs are simply roommates to their family or caretakers for their parents. It's not always a situation of privileged influencer type girl who never needed to work a day in her life, or overly coddled freeloader with a rich family.

i cant be bothered to work my incredibly low-effort, not even part-time job, i dont want to do any amount of hard schoolwork, and ive dropped or removed all of my friends. about 8 months ago i sperged out at the friends because they were all shitty normie women and i didnt want to play the social game and dont have it in me to pretend to like a faggot fucking caricature of a woman. why do they all do that?
this is the first summer i havent had to do anything related to school or work and i cant imagine wanting to do anything after i graduate in a semester or two. ive purposely delayed it in fact so that i can avoid graduating. but im scared my moms going to blow up on me (as she has done previously for a mental health crisis)
i need to figure out how to secure a neet life before i go nuclear about it all

how do i get out of neetdom if i dont have a baccalaureate degree ? not sure what the equivalent is in america, but its the diploma you get once you finish highschool/senior year. and there is no GED in my country. am i doomed ? realistically i know i am not since i know plenty illiterate middle aged people working jobs and such but i dont know if they just hire them out of pity or through connections, i know 0 people. i feel so ashamed of myself but i need to pay back my parents, they havent asked for it but i feel terribly guilty and it will keep eating away at me if i dont

I used to be desperate to get a job and become a normie but now after years this is the only way of life I can tolerate. I wonder if there is a time limit on how long you have to escape NEETdom.

Where I am there is Adult high school/secondary school at which people can finish their education as an adult and get their diploma. Maybe there's something like that in your country and you can do that? Alternatively ask for advice from a social worker? They could probably help you get in contact with the right organizations to finish your education or get a job. I also wouldn't worry too much on your parents if they haven't actually asked you to pay them back, they'd probably much rather see you get on your feet.

I feel guilty about not feeling guilty about my NEETdom. Is that weird? It feels like I've been working my entire life (eldest daughter's curse) and after leaving my high-stress job a few months ago, I don't want to return. I have a small part-time job that brings in a few hundred dollars a month for my small bills and little items and I'm supported by my wife who just wants me to be happy either way. I don't even miss the social aspects, it's very nice to stay home and work out and read and draw and write and take care of my pets. The house stays cleaner and I have more time to bake as well.

Maybe I should be striving for more, like going to college or getting certifications/taking classes in my field. I know I should want to go out and make something of myself. But I love my inner world and my hobbies, I love going for a long walk whenever I feel like it, even if it's a weird time of day. Maybe there's something wrong with me for not caring if I have a social life, but damn. This is so peaceful.

Après ça si tu veux faire des études essaie de voir s'il y a possibilité de trouver des alternances ou de faire un BTS ou DUT qui te force à faire des stages, comme ça si tu trouves une alternance ou un stage ça te fera un énorme plus sur ton CV. Idem si tu peux faire un job étudiant en parallèle des études. Même si c'est pas des trucs oufs tu pourrais faire genre t'as obtenu des compétences transverses et des soft skills qui te serviront toute ta carrière. Bon courage.

Not technically a NEET, but…I got fired last year and I'm REALLY enjoying being unemployed.

I have a degree in Dramatic Arts (lol), and the only non-performing jobs I've had are in customer service, which I learned I absolutely fucking hate.
Whenever I see people talk about going to work, it sounds so bleak and I remember how much I hated it and I just double down into my comfy relaxation. I probably can't even get a job that's not minimum wage customer service anyway, so what's the point?

My boyfriend is paying for my rent and food and everything I need, and honestly it fucking rules. This is what I've always dreamed of. I can just chill, exercise, shitpost and make delicious healthy food all day and I never want to fucking work again.

I know I'm going to need income sooner or later but the longer this goes on, the less I want to actually rejoin the workforce. I just want to live like a housecat forever.

It depends where you live. Cost of living and also likelihood of getting on disability or just not being bothered while long-term unemployed. I'm on disability but where I live it's definitely not enough to live on without family support. The cheapest rent possible for a room in a disgusting shared house full of students is more than the entire payment. Then on top of that you have bills and living expenses. And we have a comfy as fuck welfare system, just rent is extremely high.

I definitely quit a couple classes because too much interaction was expected of us. I'd also see a school therapist frequently when I was feeling like shit + was going to therapy outside of school.
So basically I just threw myself into it and did it. Also a lot smoking and alcohol eventually. I'm trying to do the same now but I just have no motivation anymore. I feel like I've failed already and graduating this late is just embarrassing so why even bother.

I thought about posting this in the recovering NEET thread but it didn't quite match. I've been NEET for a good few years, (19-26 currently), my only "job" being to focus on MH recovery. I'm at a point now where I'm doing okay, stable, but NEET and v comfortable with that. I recently got the opportunity to volunteer in MH, which I feel will be a step in the right direction but theres this inescapable feeling that the only reason i'm doing "well" is bc of my NEETdom. Being alone and becoming my own bestie, eating when i want, doing what i want, sleeping when i want. I'm so adverse to structure and routine i'm worried that i'll fuck it up again as soon as i make commitments, but im not sure if im being defeatist/self sabotaging the opportunity before its even started. Like, I really like being NEET most of the time, but i feel it must come to an end, especially feeling the pressure as I fast approach my 30s. I guess i'm worried that all my progress on my MH will unravel when I'm forced to confront the "real world" more, not that i'm completely estranged to that, I just am so comfortable being alone. Restaurants alone, trips alone, gigs alone, cinema alone, shopping alone, everything. Guess this is more of a vent than anything. I'm going to pursue this volunteer opportunity none the less, test the waters so to speak but i'm just so damn comfortable in NEETdom and aloneness (not loneliness).

I'm wondering if any nonnie has been neet as long or longer could share their perspective on this bc even in this thread i'm like wow, im too old to be doing this.

neet here and i used to have friends but they literally told me that "if you don't have a job by next year it's like not gonna work" (referring to our friendship) this was like 5 years ago. i just remember being truly deeply soulshocked that it mattered that much to anyone else. i dont have any friends anymore

What kind of mental health issues, if you want to share? I've been a NEET for 10 years (16-26). For me it's social anxiety that I've tried everything to recover from, but I guess this is just my personality. When I stop trying to recover I sleep well, work out, eat healthy and feel somewhat content with my quiet little life. When I've tried working or volunteering it all goes to hell. Binge eating to cope, bad sleep, wanting to die, not exercising, wasting money, apartment becomes a hoarder tier mess and so on. I had a full on mental breakdown the last time I tried to recover. I think we're in somewhat similar situations, as soon as there's a regular normie type routine that has to be followed I just unravel after a short while.

How often are you going to volunteer? Please don't do too much at once. It sucks that you worry your mental health progress might be lost, I hate that "good mental health" is often considered being as functional of a normie as possible.

The same is happening to me. My friends all got jobs and I could tell they didn't want to talk to me anymore because I didn't have one. It's so weird how normies are so obsessed with jobs, even on an emotional level. I get that some people NEED to work, but I used to work too and honestly I couldn't care less if someone I knew didn't work. I also didn't think about it 24/7 and didn't think my "value" depended on my job. I didn't really feel superior to anyone.

I wonder if its because they think NEETs won’t have money for going out with them, having their own transport, going on trips together, etc. If you were wealthy NEETs maybe their opinion would be different.

I'm not 100% sure what my issues are, but my diagnosis collection is ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Social Anxiety Disorder. Docs think I have Bipolar Disorder as well (I'm being treated as though I have bipolar disorder but idk if it's officially on paper yet).
Oh and anorexia. On top of a physically ill condition.

Got a job offer recently though, so I guess I'll be taking a break from NEETdom

I lost my job about a month ago, had a bad depressive episode and had to move back to my home town. My mom called me when it was all going down and I had a breakdown and sort of revealed that I'm suicidal. She got so scared and told the whole family. My dad was particularly scared. I spoke to him later and asked him if he would support me if I just decided to be useless (I meant neet but he doesn't know that term) for the rest of my life, and he said yes. I kind of want to neet out forever until he and my mom die, then I'll just slide the sewer. The only problem is socializing. I've been in this state for a month, just playing vidya and surfing the web. It's really starting to hit me how lonely I am. I don't know how to make friends outside of work though. I also just want to be around people for a bit, like maybe go to a bar and get drunk and just be around other human beings even if they ignore me. I don't think financially this situation would be viable though. My dad makes good money but he's not rich. My mom is retired and is traveling a lot after decades of wage slavery, and she deserves to treat herself and not have to support her 30yo daughter. Idk man. Sorry for the wall of text.

I wish. right now I'm too fucked to keep the little job I do have (just got it and it isn't going too well).
was gonna ask my doc about disability shit but then he ghosted me. my physical issues aren't officially recognized in the U.S. but I'm being treated for a mental condition which would qualify me for disability checks. but idk if a bipolar diagnosis is actually on paper yet. my medication combination is suited for bipolar but idk if I've been officially "diagnosed". the U.S. health system is so weird. I don't understand anything. like, tell me what my motherfucking diagnosis is, don't kill me with a dangerous medication combination, why is that so fucking hard?

We're in a pretty similar situation, left my job a month ago, bad depressive episode, spend my time playing replaying Mass Effect to forget i exist. I live alone and i have no family, though. This month i took my savings to live, next month i won't have enough to pay for rent.

I feel so lonely, too. Haven't spoken to another human in 2 weeks, and last time was a doctor. But to me it's a good thing because it'll finally push me to suicide, next month i will literally have nothing to live for, can't even be a NEET in peace because i have no support system. Meanwhile i play video games and act in denial.

The more the very real reality that i might be leaving NEETdom soon encroaches in me, the more i feel scared. I'm honestly terrified, i want to go back to my safety net and spend my days safely at home. I don't know how to have adult responsibilities and i'm too scared to learn. I'm autistic and i feel like i'm doomed to fail if i even try.

Anon why don't you just switch to a BTEC? You can still get into a good uni with that or start with a foundation year and get into an even better one, it's so much easier to pass too. I wasted my money retaking first year twice tho so I'm not too far off you.

Bought notebooks, gel pens, fountain pens, went to a half hour zoom meeting (muted and no webcam/icon of course) about the community college starting on the 31st. Still haven't applied of figured out what I want to study lmao. Tempted to wait until next year yet again because I did not do any money financial aid FAFSA shit I should've done months ago. If I don't do it I'll get some minimum wagie job instead and try to put on the normie not socially awkward act. Gonna miss the neet life again but I am too stagnant and I want money

Former neet here. You don't have to wait until next year if you don't want to. I started community College in the winter. And you don't need a declared major for community College. Most get a general transfer degree, and even if you don't wanna go to a 4 year school and wanna just do a 2 year certificate, the first semester is so generalized you still don't have to worry about a major until later.

I started a fully remote job recently and it made me spiral back into my old NEET ways.
Being an adult NEET that earns good money was my teenage dream but the older I get the more I realize that I should go outside and experience real life before I die. I am in a constant battle with myself where I want to go outside but I have no drive to because NEETdom is so comfy.

Any other nonnas in the same situation?

Sorry for barging in as an ex-neet, but I feel like if I complained about this anywhere else on here I'd only be called a blight on society like it always happens whenever an anon admits to neeting kek. I went from my only human contact being talking to my parents on the phone about once every other week tops to having to talk to 100+ people in a day. I hate everything and should I ever leave the job I currently have I'll try to find something where I work at night and preferably talk to absolutely no one at all. I have no problem living off of savings for a long time, I just have no idea how I should explain the gaps of me doing absolutely nothing job relevant.
