Unashamed: Help educate your friends about mental illness in general and schizophrenia in particular. Hospitalization is a time when your true friends should rally around you. Any friend who would abandon you during a difficult time was not a friend to begin with. Elimination of the stigma of mental illness will happen one relationship at a time. Be strong and unashamed and your good friends will as well.

Physical activity: Wow, many people have this problem. Try to sever the connection with being bored and eating. Find a better substitute, preferably something involving physical activity. Take a walk outside or on a treadmill, go to a park, shoot some hoops. If that fails, read a book or even turn on the television.
