I used to wear sunglasses all of the time. It seemed to help with my anxiety, especially while in stores. Fluorescent lights sometimes bother me. I especially feel weird when going from a night time dark outside environment into a brightly lit store. It often makes me anxious.
I also wore sun glasses while driving at night to minimize the brightness of the oncoming car headlights. This is probably not advisable. (I don't like driving at night and don't do it now.)
Some links I've found about this:
- Light therapy for bipolar disorder - some reports of it inducing hypomania!
It seems to me that my hypomanic mood sometimes gets triggered by bright sunlight. On the other hand, if it has been a dark day, sometimes I feel better after getting some bright light exposure. Like most things in life, moderation is key....
