Any graveyard shift workers here have experience with daylight lamps?

I'm going to start a new job with a night shift next week (11pm to 7am). I'm considering getting one of those daylight imitating lamps to help maintain my circadian rhythm, but I'm wondering if anyone really needs or uses them, and if so, what kind? Are the little ones good enough? Or could I just get a blue-ish lightbulb and screw that into my regular lamp? Also do they rack up your electric bill a lot or is it negligible? [more inside]

Is it possible that shifting when I sleep very slightly (say 11-7 instead of 10-6) can make a difference in how well rested I feel? [more inside]

Where can I find a reading light with a low (or adjustable) color temp?

I'm looking for a reading light for a recently purchased standard kindle, but I'd like something that has a low (or adjustable) color temperature so reading at night doesn't mess with circadian rhythms as much. [more inside]

I'm a nightowl, seriously. How do I make this work.

I have real problems functioning during the day - during daylight hours I am depressed, I am foggy, I am tired, I seriously have issues 'getting through the day'. Come night time I am fine - happier, functioning, a better more productive person. [more inside]

Repairing Circadian Rhythm With Little Daylight

Because of recent trauma and a manic episode that lasted several weeks, I seem to still be without a circadian rhythm. I am familiar with the most common suggestions, such as getting daylight, putting yourself on a sleeping/waking/eating schedule, and exercise. These have mixed benefit to me for reasons I'll explain below. I'm looking for tweaks to make those things work better and am also seeking other ways to reset biorhythms because this is astonishingly disruptive and makes all other order impossible. [more inside]

Sequential Eating, Metabolism, and Digestion

I was researching sequential eating and would like some advice, here are my thoughts and questions: It seems that it takes (on average) 2-4 hours for foods or beverages to leave the stomach. I was wanting to eat/drink something specific every two hours. I have 8 hours to sleep every night, and I like to eat right before sleep as well. This leaves me with 16 hours in a wakened state. Or, 9 segments of eating/drinking. (I drink water right when I wake up) On the basis of sequential eating, what are some useful tips/advice I could keep in consideration while putting together snacks of 1-3 things? It's looking like 4 meals a day, 5 drinks a day, alternating every two hours. OR, what I would rather prefer, is eating 9 meals a day (fruit in the morning with my water), and drinking 6oz of water every hour on the dot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
