Two comments. Yes, not eating right will make you feel bad. Especially eating only one thing all the time. My suggestion is if you are having a really rough time getting motivated to eat right, than I suggest buying canned food and stocking up. The more variety you have to eat the healthier you will be. Opening and heating up canned food is as easy or even easier than making porridge.
Eating canned food is not as healthy as eating fresh meat, fresh, vegetables, or dairy products but they are way better than eating strictly porridge. You can buy canned food and still eat porridge if you want, but everything in moderation. You can buy canned fruit, vegetables, meat and pasta.
Here’s another tip: check for sales for canned food and stock up when it’s cheap. Buy 7 or 8 cans of it. You will save money and always have food on hand if you are just feeling so bad that you can’t get yourself to shop for food.
Like I said, it’s better for you to eat fresh food, but it doesn’t hurt to eat canned food if you just absolutely can’t get yourself to go the grocery store. Maybe make it a goal to cook at least one good homemade meal a week of something you really, really, like. It’s a good way to pamper yourself and do something good for yourself.
Wow, I’m really obsessing on this thread aren’t I, lol? The best, most basic way to take care of your health is to eat right and get enough sleep. As people with schizophrenia, these are especially important for us and they are the most basic things to do to help ourselves, not only for the present, but for the future too.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Morissey is the king of depressing songs. Instead, listen to the Beatles or even better yet, go on YouTube and watch videos of them performing. I can’t be depressed if I’m watching John Lennon mugging for the camera while singing " I feel Fine".
