    Hikikomori

    I'm doing a paper on hikikomori (Japanese for 'to withdraw from society') and was searching on the net for usefull information on the subject. Youngsters who are called hikikomori lock themselves up in their room and don't come out for months or even years. They pass their time with playing games, watching tv or just surf on the Internet. I have found a few very interesting sites and articles, but I need more information. Local liberary turned out to be not too usefull...

    Does anyone here have an idea where I can look for more info or usefull sites I might take a look at... I appreciate your help!!!

    A deathless heart alive with greif
    Smiles when it hears of thee
    Whisper now my secret love
    Kiss my lips and rise above
