Hikikomori

I was just reading about Hikikomori. It's really fascinating, and I hadn't heard of them before. The phenomenon sounds more akin to schizoid personality types, but as an avoidant I see myself in it too.

Has anyone else pulled away from the world like this. The year after I finished grad school I withdrew to my apartment for more than a year. I mean, I still went out, but it was nice knowing I could be alone and not have to deal with people for as long as I could stand. Unhealthy as it sounds, it was nice.
