Drinking(not alcohol)

Mention is sometimes made of those with psychosis/schizophrenia overdoing the fluid intake but I wonder if others have experienced the opposite.
Several times at the depot clinic they’ve suggested I should drink more. It seems they can tell from your skin when they give you the injection.
It is hard because in my mind I am drinking enough fluid.

What I do is I put a big bottle of water on my desk and fill it up to three times a day. If you have in front of you, you might drink more. Give it a try. I’m also really enjoying drinking ice tea, maybe you could give it a try?

I pop meds all day long - got to wash it down with something, I choose water.

I drink about 4 bottles of water a day.

Green tea…

I live in a warmer climate than the UK so fluid intakes a must.

Get a water filter and fill up bottles and keep in the fridge. The filtered water tastes better. In ready to drink bottles it’s more appealing to the eye when you go to the fridge. It’s how I keep water intake up and mostly avoid all the crap drinks. Saves a bundle just shoving a bottle or two of water in my bag when I head out too.
