Can you make oatmeal without using oats?

I am 19 and have never had oatmeal. For reasons i would rather not explain, i have a craving for oatmeal, however there are no oats in my house. i do not have a car, and all no-oat oatmeal recipes i've found involve more complicated substitutes (the **** are flax seeds?)

what do?
