  1. Humans are herd animals. Therefore, there is no way without a team.

    Standard recommendations for such a question
    1. Consult a doctor-psychiatrist-psychotherapist
    2. They will identify or rule out medical problems and make recommendations.
    3. Follow the recommendations.

  2. To begin with, it does not always lead to them, but often even on the contrary, it treats mental problems, especially if you isolate yourself consciously and with knowledge of the matter. But more often it happens on the contrary, mental problems lead to self-isolation, and then only get worse. It is also important where and where to isolate yourself, for example, it is unlikely that there will be mental problems if you go to Tibet for a month or two or at least somewhere closer, fish, pick mushrooms, cook food over a campfire, think about the eternal, and so on. And if social life is so fucked up, and you're just stuck in the same city, with the same Internet or TV, closed in the room and still drink beer, then yes, there may be problems. Well, this is so, the probability, of course, everything, but it may be that the Internet and beer in self-isolation will not do anything particularly bad.

  3. I think that mental problems arise in those people who can not occupy themselves with something interesting. Due to pinched nerves in the spine and the inability to walk, I sit at home for the third year, even sit on the bed-all through a wild pain. I'm waiting for another operation. But never once did it occur to me to suffer from isolation. I started writing poetry and prose on the Proza website.<url>, I met and made friends with my friends from an accident with Parkinson's disease, I enjoy communicating on cooking sites and I wrote a cookbook for Parkinson's patients myself. In general, I have already published 10 books in a Czech publisher. With my granddaughter's essays here, I had to help Derzhavin write at 11 pm – I had to refresh my memory. So many things to do – what a depression there is! And if a person is not interested in living, if he is a bore, then with him and others are not interested, and he is not nice to himself! Look for talents and like-minded people – and you will forget about your problems!

  4. I'm not a psychologist, but I've heard comments about how a person functions in relation to society. We are social beings in every sense, we don't fully know our sanity without the help of society, and the longer we are left without feedback, the closer we are to the disorder. But this is naturally a general idea and there are extremes in any rule. There are nuances of predisposition to a disorder from psychological traits: an extrovert needs society for normal functioning, an introvert needs less.

  5. Because the person is thus placed in a predictable environment.

    In the ordinary world, we face random, unpredictable events: someone smiled, someone stepped on their foot, you couldn't agree with someone, but they gave you a discount or praised you. All this gives the mind an incentive to develop.

    When you're alone, even movies don't help so much (although things are unpredictable inside them). You started them yourself and can close them at any time. And try just as easily to hang out with the person you like or, on the contrary, to get rid of the bore.

    A similar situation occurs when you work at the same job for 10 years and do the same thing (hello to me).

    A person gets pleasure when he improves himself and learns new things (typing blindly, communicating better, avoiding unpleasant situations). When he has learned something, the skill is pushed into the subconscious, the consciousness no longer works on it (typing blindly we do not think). And without work, consciousness has to be very, very sad and lonely. I don't know why, but it's like this.

    Just like on the planet Miller, where there is no chance.

  6. When a person is left alone with his thoughts, he is immersed in fantasies, reasoning and memories. If a person does not try to distract himself in every possible way and pass the time: movies, games, walks, work. Then it negatively affects not only his psyche.

    Body: as a result of restrictions in motor activity, the risk of cardiovascular diseases increases, muscles weaken, bone density decreases, and the nervous system is disrupted.

    Emotions: from constant thoughts about past things not said or done, to thoughts about the future and death, endless thinking leads to emotional imbalance and anxiety.

    The psyche: from the lack of communication, sounds, images, the body begins to adjust and supplement it with its own, hallucinations appear in a weak form. The perception of time changes, it seems that the hands of the clock are moving slower than usual. There are thoughts of suicide or vice versa, no desire to die, depression passes into a new stage.

    P/s: On the other hand, self-isolation leads to an information hunger strike. When you're alone with your books, in a couple of weeks you'll be reading one book after another, writing poetry, and drawing.

    1. Humans are the product of an evolutionary process that has led to the formation of complex, efficient communities. Evolution guarantees that a person will enter into social relations as reliably as the fact that he will enter into sexual relations. You just can't ignore the Need

    2. The achievements of civilization allow you to stop the problems caused by abstinence or even bypass them altogether. For example, reading. A good book qualitatively simulates social processes in the human mind. If you are addicted to reading, you can live in the library for a long time. As long as you have food and water, take the Hikikamori's computers, manga, and parents. The result will be unambiguous

  7. In general, self-isolation of an individual is quite common, especially in Asian countries. Take Japan, for example, and according to a report published by the Japanese government, more than half a million young Japanese people (and according to some sources, 700,000) are self-imposed recluses. This phenomenon is called “hikikomori”.�

    The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare defines hikikomori as people who do not leave their home and isolate themselves from family and society for more than 6 months. Of the 541,000 people aged 15-39 who fit this description, 34% have spent seven or more years in complete self-isolation. Another 29% lead a hermit life for 3 to 5 years.

    The term hikikomori first appeared in the late 20th century. In the 1990s, about a million people, mostly young men in their 20s and 30s, spent their days in their room reading manga, watching TV, or playing computer games. They refused to work or study, and often did not communicate even with family members, let alone friends.

    There is no standard approach to such people yet. Scientists believe that this condition, which has not yet received official disease status, is caused by a mixture of psychological and social causes. The problem is much more common in men than in women, as they are under much greater pressure from society, whose standards require social and professional success.

    Social anthropologist James Robertson, editor of Men and Masculinity in Modern Japan, describes this phenomenon as follows: “Men begin to feel the pressure of society in high school and within two or three years their success in later adulthood is almost predetermined. Hikikomori is a way of resisting pressure. It's like they're saying, ” Go to hell! I don't like it and I won't do it.”

    Failure at school and in the workplace can lead to social isolation, but it can be avoided by voluntarily withdrawing from the world. For some people, failure causes feelings of inferiority, leading to anxiety disorders.

    In 2010, according to government estimates, there were already 700,000 Hikikomori in Japan, which means that their official number has decreased by almost a third. However, experts say that the official data is incomplete, as only people aged 15 to 39 are included in the statistics. Tens of thousands of male Hikikomori are beyond that age. Last winter, The Japan Times magazine reported on an increased number of men over the age of 40 who have “fallen through growing holes in the fabric of social existence”and are leading a hikikomori-style life. Most often, this happened to them after they were dismissed from work.

    Hikikomori almost always come from affluent families, and their parents often have a high level of education. Researchers have found that educated parents not only place high expectations on their children, but are also more likely to provide financial support to adult non-working sons. According to statistics, about 60% of Hikikomori live with both parents, and the remainder with their mothers.

  8. We are designed by nature to be constantly receiving signals from other people, and we are used to reacting to this all the time. When no signals are received , the brain panics.

    I will tell you only about 1 of my cases.

    At first, I didn't understand why solitary confinement was a punishment in prison. Why? After all, it's safe, and in prison the contingent is you know what… But it turned out that living alone is painful for a person, no matter who he is, and no matter who is around you.

    Once I went to the village on business, and stayed for 3 days to sleep off and eat shish kebab. I've been dreaming of getting some sleep in Moscow for so long… And now I had a whole house, fresh air, and peace at my disposal.

    Well, on the first day I had a chat with the neighbors. Then I drank beer, watched TV shows, and read a book. On the second day, I was bored to death… When you are alone in the house, and there are not even mice scratching around , it is painful. You feel uncomfortable, not because something is there, but because something is not. There are no things that annoy you, but there are no things that make you happy. And it is especially disgusting for some reason in the house, but if you go outside, it's fine. But there's not much to do on the street, either…

    On the third day, I set off early for the bustling, bored Moscow.

    I understood why solitary confinement is a punishment.
