Sounds absolutely dreadful.
Heretic! Seriously, though, I think I might have the same problem with cooked porridge, at least made from flakes, especially the 'instant' stuff, as you. Sends me straight off to sleep. On a bad day if I try to stay awake it makes me depressed, and on a really bad day, just about suicidal. I'm ok with porridge cooked from oatmeal as opposed to oat flakes, but even then it doesn't work too well. Just pure stodge otherwise.

That works better for me - the trick I've found is to soak it overnight, otherwise it tends to go right through you. Maybe it takes longer to digest when it's soaked and not cooked, especially when it's coarse oat flakes. Could be something wrong with my blood sugar, but the quicker porridge takes to cook, and therefore to digest, the worse it is for me.
Peasemeal brose definitely is worth a try, though - you might get a bag at your local health shop. Tastes like... peasemeal brose.
