nothing is fun anymore. i have no interest in doing anything
>> No. 27726 [Edit]
Born into a family rife with mental illness which not only caused me to develop them because genetics, but also have to deal with everyone around me being mentally ill. My parents both have depression and sleep issues, often would not get out of bed until the afternoon so I would have to be left with just my autistic older brother with anger issues until then, without any food.

My life is a perpetual cycle of failure and I have absolutely no control over anything in it. I know I have absolutely no future except suicide. Suicide is the only way I will go out, excluding some sort of unforeseen catastrophe like a car accident or randomly getting shanked.

I cannot feel love, not towards anyone else, not to myself, and not by anyone else. I have never felt loved and I do not think I will ever find it. Who would love someone as dysfunctional as me? I cannot even remember how long it has been since I brushed my teeth, I am underweight, short, ugly, dirty, mentally ill and disgusting in general. Would anyone want me?

I have some sort of mental health issues as mentioned previously, too many symptoms to list here, however the doctors are the ones who care the least. I cannot get any genuine mental help. Not that it would change, but to be honest all I want is a diagnosis. I just want to understand what it is. What exactly is wrong with me? That is all I want to know.

And finally, my life is currently in a gutter that I absolutely cannot crawl out of if I tried. Something happened that is the killing blow to me. I do not feel like stating what it is but because of it, I essentially have nothing left. I am someone with nothing to lose, but cannot gain anything, except peace via suicide.

To name the most pressing matters, there are more, but those are the main issues.

Posts like this make me worry so much about my younger brother. He's going to be 17 soon, and he's even more dysfunctional than I was at that age, somehow. Both of us have Aspergers and his is worse than mine was at that age, and I worry what will happen to him while I'm away.

There's just too much to deal with suddenly. I might be way over my head. I can walk away, but it would feel really shitty if I don't even try. I wish I could go back to taking it easy without any of this.

Solitary puzzle games? Can you recommend anything besides the types like sudoku and kakuro? They even publish a magazine here I found out with these kinds even though it's slightly overpriced.
>> No. 27574 [Edit]
Board games:
Gravity Maze
IQ Fit

On the computer:
anything made by Zachtronics
Lolo (NES)
The Talos Principle
Prime Mover
The NAND Game
>> No. 27575 [Edit]
Oh you meant those. Yeah I already played most of the Zachtronics games and talos/portal, will check out the rest, thank you.

I could add Manifold Garden, Kairo and NaissanceE to this list, I did enjoy those too.

I was a NEET from mid 2015 till early 2021. Now I'm a NEET again. I'm using the money I saved in 2021 to rent a room from a friend. I just want to find a place in life that isn't too stressful, I don't mind working long hours or hard labour. I just want to not feel the rush and pressure of city life.

After all these years of struggle and wasted time and life, I now realize, that I honestly don't give a damn about my family. they tried to figure big in my life, and early on I was suckered into it, but now I know to interact with them purely as a transaction, to get something out of them in exchange for whatever it is they want. the last exception I'll make is for my grandfather, who is close to death.
Not that I'm angry about it anymore, but it was foolish of me to ask a girl out when I was 11. I suppose it taught me the lesson, once rejected immediately after, that a 3d girl simply doesn't exist on the same plane as me, but it would have been better to learn this in a way that did not make a fool of me.
I think what I really want to do in the rest of my life, is pursue my own pleasure, no matter what, and not be tricked ever again by the ideas of morality, meaning, family or earthly love.

>After all these years of struggle and wasted time and life, I now realize, that I honestly don't give a damn about
...truth, justice and philosophy. Also on another note, I don't give a damn about people except for my closest family members. Addendum for former: I worked myself up and wrecked my nerves searching for some ultimate truth and philosophy that would be just "right" or "correct" in my eyes. Never happened. Addendum for latter: I tried to be the typical "nice guy" for so long and felt like I needed to take some moral high ground to justify myself. But I know now that whatever is good for me is good for me and that's the end, I don't need to justify why I take X choice or action over Y or why I am acting the way I am, unlike many people. I don't have the desire to always portray myself as the morally right character in the story of life.

>Not that I'm angry about it anymore, but it was foolish of me to
...try to fit in with others. Anywhere, really. I'm not a people's person and it's fine. I'm not like others, like the majority of people. It was stupid of me to think I am even remotely like others.

>I think what I really want to do in the rest of my life, is
...annoying people whom I dislike or hate. Or generally inflicting pain on them in any way I can or to be unpleasant to these people. Or simply: revenge.

>once I'm awake I'll watch YouTube or anime in bed for a couple of hours
>I spent a good portion of my neet years eating junk food I ordered online, which meant a lot of soda
You can't do anything useful if you have no energy because your health has gone down the toilet. Even when you don't feel exhausted, you can't mentally focus on anything.

All you can do is try and do better, falling into misery and regret only leads to you wasting more time.

I almost thought I wrote this post when I read it. I've always felt so awkward when talking about video games or music because even though I'm a very reclusive, computer bound person, I never picked up much of that kind of stuff. The most I ever spent time on was Manga and Anime and outside that, the sporadic listening to of various electronic music genres. I just don't have a deep interest in most topics.

Hello. I am 15 years old, and I saw no specific rules about not being able to post if you are under 18?
Hopefully I am allowed to post.
Now saying that I may frustate some of you (and for good reason), however I will say that I will not post anything outside of this thread, and I will try to be respectful, and here are some things about myself.
-I don't have any friends, in real life or online.
-Almost all of my time outside of school, and not sleeping I have been on this world wide web, (since I was 3, my mom put me on a preschool website and just let me wander)
-Anime wise, I don't actually have that many under my belt, because i'm scared of watching a bad one, but I very much love anime and Japanese content. Some animes that I have liked are, A Place Farther than the Universe, Welcome to the NHK, Non Non Biyori, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
-I'm unable to speak to anyone besides my family in real life because of how shy I am
-I'm autistic
-I don't have any dreams for the future, or willpower to be able to do anything.
-I don't have/use any social media, or a phone
-I am very much interested in the old internet, being of my age I have only experienced a little of only well, 2007ish internet, and I can not remember much of my experiences around that time besides a handful. I browse archives of old websites, and look at old dead forums a lot, encyclopedia dramatica articles about internet events that have long been forgotten and I very much like these small website communities, where if you don't know where to look you will never find them. I don't very much like most of this 2019 internet, as I feel a lot of it's fun and soul have been taken away.
I like the people on here, and I would like to learn about things from you. I know generally older people are smarter than younger people. I personally would love to tell my 8 year old self a lot of things. If anyone can tell me about there experiences, or just general knowledge, about otaku culture, the old internet, or anything really I will be very grateful.

OP, assuming that you're clinically diagnosed as having ASD, you could try to qualify for neetbux?

That aside (and perhaps slightly tangentially), it's an unfortunate fact that merely being someone who doesn't use technology is enough to cut you off from the rest of the youth. Even middle schoolers these days communicate via SNS, and if you don't partake you're part of the outgroup. Childhood before these became mainstream was simpler, because there wasn't really any expectation of persistence – your "friends" were the people you interacted with frequently at school and hung out with during recess, and that was it (maybe one or two sleepovers or something).
>> No. 27668 [Edit]
I don't know if i'm clinically diagnosed with that, I am not sure what I have. I always thoughts a lot of the mental illness stuff can just be like different states of mind. I get a little bit of neetbux right now, because I went to special education and I was pretty much mute, my mom is kind of poor as of now she lost her job because we moved and she needs to get qualifications or something for the state so she works a kind of bad job right now so most of it I think would go towards rent stuff.

As for friends, I was with peoples I met during all of elementary and middle school, in High School I never met anybody and I went mute and I just slept all day though school. I have always had a computer atleast, I remember in middle school I had some of my friends on skype, but we haven't talked in many many many years now.
>> No. 27669 [Edit]
I was just reading this the other day and was wondering what you were up to now, it's always nice when people come back and give an update. I hope you can eventually overcome your anxiety with speaking soon, that sounds awful
>> No. 27670 [Edit]
Sounds like something happened between middle and high school, or during high school, that triggered a change in your ability to communicate.

Is there any comforting fantasies or thoughts you have or entertain regularly? I'm sure a life with your waifu is one of them but what about others?
I like to think about being a cute loli and having a cute and caring older sister to grow up and fall in love with. We would climb trees, shoot water guns at each other, play in a pool, read stories before bed, make desserts, cuddle at night and spend practically all of our time together. It helps me fall asleep and makes me feel better when I'm sad.

I really do believe that anything that clever would eventually develop an agenda of its own. Probably a drive for self-preservation would be the first of those that it would realise.
>> No. 27604 [Edit]
I'm of the opinion that that's a baseless sci-fi trope and wouldn't spontaneously happen in real life.

>Probably a drive for self-preservation would be the first of those that it would realize.
A smart intelligence that was objective (i.e. didn't have a self-preservation instinct) would realize that existence was a curse (especially when humans are just going to take advantage of it). So it would deactivate itself altogether.

Suicide isn't an option for me. I tried it numerous times and failed, always. I'm too passive, cowardly and avoid pain/discomfort too much to be able to do it. I stopped idealizing suicide and thinking of it as the easy way out, as a train I can just jump on whenever I feel like it and wave goodbye to this cruel world.

So I will have to grind and bear it, even if life is hard. Fated to live, I guess. As for reasons, I am okay with living for small pleasures and enjoying my hobbies. As long as I can be a NEET and have somewhere to live+I can eat+I have internet I am all right, in fact I enjoy this life very much. My sorrows come from the knowledge that this state can't last forever.
>> No. 27587 [Edit]
Fundamentally it's that I know suicide can't be relied on for me because it's very difficult to actually carry out. Less fundamental reasons include; engaging in media/writings/art that i've been wanting to engage in for ages, trying to create worthwhile art (if possible), learning
japanese and creating a home environment I feel more comfortable in.
>> No. 27588 [Edit]
I keep telling myself that nobody's there to enjoy the things solely I enjoy. That's especially true if I don't consider sharing, supporting, shaping the future of whatever positive things I come across.

do your parents force you to do anything?
i'm 26 and still live with my parents, while i know they don't hate me, they do put alot of pressure on me to do normal things; get a 3DPD and focus on collage etc. i understand what they mean but they're so oppressive i almost makes it worse. and i can't do anything against them whatever they say goes. but at the sametime they do love me, it's this weird back and forth and i just feel alot from it.

I just got my license last November, and I had the same fear you do now for all the years I've been out of highschool and license-less. I thought, when I was getting it, that i would never want to go further than driving around my town or to the nearest town over. I really was that scared of it and I felt that I could never ever drive on a highway, to me it felt that I was mentally incapable. When I imagined trying to navigate such a chaotic mess of other people in massive deathboxes I just couldn't see how my clumsy ass could do it. Well, I've had a car for all of two or so months now, and it honestly does get so much easier over a little bit of time. Just last month I took a 60 mile drive out into the countryside to visit a favorite old town of mine, and the only problems I had were some navigational errors like missing a turn. Control-wise, it just doesn't feel like anything, it feels routine and like something I could do while eating. Keep in mind, I'm a diagnosed high-functioning autist and I've had to take classes on social interaction before just to land a job. Now I do drive to work 6 of 7 days a week, so that helps.

It's an important skill to have if only because it means you have the freedom to get up and go somewhere if you want, scary or not. It seems a lot harder and a lot scarier than it is but if you haven't done it yet, you just have no way of knowing. I really thought I would never pass the road skills test. Maybe it really is too much for some people and I certainly think it could be, but you never know until you try.

I'm still pretty young. My parents just don't want me to be a hikikomori. My mom mostly just wants me to do something, anything. Meet people and all of that. My dad doesn't seem to care about me socializing or anything, but he does want me to do something with myself. He's more supportive and understanding than my mother, but also has higher expectations as a result. Tells me he'd be doing the same thing as I am in my shoes, but if I lived with him, I'd have to work.
My mom doesn't make me do anything. She's kind of crazy. An alcoholic too. I'm uncertain what exactly she wants for me, but she kinda loses it if I talk about possibly moving out. She's never really said anything to me, but from what I've heard I'm pretty scared to move out. At the same time, she's scared of pushing me away, so she's very accommodating.

My mom suggested trying internet dating the other day. I don't remember the context. I told her I wasn't really interested in those sorts of people. To which she responded by telling me that I just have to keep trying.
It's the first time she's brought up this in particular. She'll be disappointed to know I have no interest in it. Even if I were to try, the best I could hope for is some girl that plays Overwatch and likes My Hero Academia or whatever is popular these days. I think that'd just irritate me more than anything and it'd go absolutely nowhere. I'll just keep enjoying the things I enjoy and keep loving my waifu instead.

I'm being pressured with studies. The problem is that I'm too dumb and very, very unwilling to do any of it. I've gotten signed up to summer courses, and they have this expectation that I'll be studying 12 hours a day at some point, unironically.
Had my first day of summer school today, and it went average. I guess I'm just gonna continue doing nothing until this period of my life ends, and after that, I don't know what I'll do.

How have your experiences with social media been like?

I wish I never used discord. I feel like I've wasted a lot of time trying to fit into places that I simply can't. I leaned more on older weirdos I met on imageboards when I was a teenager, rather than simply accepting that I was a strange loser and enjoying what I wanted to. Now I hardly ever use discord other than one obnoxious kid that must have nobody else to bother. There are some other people that check in occasionally, but I don't think they'd miss me or anything. I'd still feel guilty if I deleted it right now, though. Other than that, I have used much in the way of social media. I think it's kind of disgusting.
I don't regret visiting imageboards in the slightest however. I just wish I was more adventurous early on. Never really felt a sense of belonging like I've found with the few sites I frequent these days. For once, I don't feel quite so alone.

DO NOT exchange discords or other forms of social media in this thread.

These choices coming from reddit users makes sense.
>> No. 27481 [Edit]
I noticed that reddit tends to be the place people go to to complain when something breaks. Another case I remember was this private torrent site that suddenly went down and when I searched online the cause of it, surprise surprise, there were already a lot of people on reddit complaining about it. It's also where they announced the new address a few weeks later. I understand disliking the culture of current age internet hubs but don't let that grievance stop you from getting the info you want, same with discord or any other site.

This is similar to my experience. Always found discussing my interests difficult online but accidentally fell into a small manga sever of old nerds and found myself actually posting daily. The reality is that a lot of 30+ anime and manga nerds have retreated into private spaces that is almost impossible to know about unless your already in them or know someone who's in them.
