How are things in Japan?
Japan has many problems now like nuclear power plant, recovery of the disaster area by the tsunami, yen's appreciation etc...

I don't feel like watching news on tv these days. because I feel hopeless.

I can do nothing for my country. I can do nothing even for myself.

I think I'm partly hikikomori. I spend most of the time at home.
but I can go out sometimes thanks to the medicine.

I don't know what CBT is. My doctor adviced me to gather experience of small success one by one. but i don't know what to do. I can't stop thinking I can't do anything well.

Anyways you'll like these forums, good luck!
Thank you for your reply. I don't know what CBT is. Can you explain about it for me?

Thank you for your reply. I live in Kagoshima,south part of Japan.
I think Tokyo is very fun city but for people who have SAD like me, Tokyo is very scary place.

Hi, is anyone there?
Well, I'm from Japan too.
I'm 39year old female. I have SA for a long time.
It might sound weird, but I sometimes feel much easier when I talk about my problems in English than in Japanese.
I'm new here and I hope that I can get some ideas to make my life better.

Hello, welcome.

Some time ago I saw an american who have been working in Japan for 20 years now saying that it's actually hard to speak about your feelings and stuff like that in Japanese, because of how people usually try to be as concise as possible when speaking to each other in Japan and how the Japanese language doesn't have many words for that. Would you agree with him?

Hi Louco!
Thanks for your reply.
Yeah, your friend is right.
Well, about the difference between Japanese and English, I think Japanese langugage gets sometimes too vague, too subtle, or very indirect when you wanna describe your feelings.
As a native Japanese speaker, sometimes I feel English works better when I explain my feelings or what it's like to have SA, English is more direct I guess.
My English is nothing perfect, but I think language is interesting that way.

Hello and welcome.
There are two things I like in Japan : Pokémon and Karate.

As for SA, I've heard that japanese society is quite different, as an example: effeminate men in japan wouldn't stand out as much as they'd do in western society.

To RegalSin,
Thanks for your reply.
Oh yeah, you mean Nyan_n and me, right?
I'm not sure she/he is still here, I'll message her/him later.
Well, Japan is a tiny island nation, but for instance from Okinawa to Hokkaido it takes months by walking haha.
Thanx anyway.
Bur for me, to meet up with a completely new person, it makes me super nervous... hmm (._.)

To Jungle,
Thanks for your reply!
Okay cool, you like Pokemon and Karate.
In Japan these things are really popular.

And yeah, indeed japanese society is so different from western societies, many of japanese guys are relatively less manly but that's kind of normal in japan.

When I was studying English in a western country, a local guy asked me like ”why are japanese men and women so different?” I still don't really get what he meant exactly, but now I understand.

So, I guess effeminate guys would feel a little more comfortable being in japan than in western society. tabun..

Hello otz_kare

As you can see, you'll find a lot of nice people here you can relate to. I'm sure others' experiences and advices will help you as well as yours will help others.

BTW i'm currently studying japanese and what a beautiful language you have (a pity is not enough to express your feelings)

Welcome! ^_^

Your English is very good. I'm not a native English speaker either, but I don't know if I would be able to speak anything in English at all if I had to learn the Latin alphabet after growing up. Many Japanese can speak English though, you guys are so smart.
