Hikikomori as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)

  • Dissociated identities
  • Missing memory of traumatic events
  • Occasion derealization
  • Unable to feel emotions, anger, or physical exhaustion

There is a potential for DID should there be missing memories, derealization, feeling of uncomfortableness is a part of you or there is another self.

Hikikomori is treatable. One can begin to have relationships with others by building trusting therapeutic relationship with a therapist and discovering the lost true self that retreated from the mother in childhood.
