It seems to me you've come to the right place. Earlt morning awakening, 2 Am ad again 4Am is common for me. Feeling depressed is common. Sometimes I have to force myself to get up and move around although I feel like burrowing deeper under the covers. Those manic spells you describe, very light hearted (and light-headed). have gotten me into some trouble, so beware (shopping sprees, gambling, etc). You are lucky you can escape to warmer climes. That in itself helps me feel better. Sounds like you need a mood stabilizer. See a Psychiatrist, will you?
