Hi Shela,

You mentioned more mania in the summer. Have you ever used amber glasses?

The amber color blocks out blue light. Blue light suppresses melatonin excretion, and is thought to shift the circadian rhythm (bad for bipolar). The theory is that by wearing the glasses starting in the early evening, you block the "mania inducing" effects of extra summer daylight.

You can pick them up at a local hardware store for under $20.

There is some actual science behind it. It's not completely wacko jacko.

I notice big changes in my mood in the early spring (late Feb into May) and the glasses seem to help curb this.
