I am 22. I suffer from anxiety and depression.
Nightmares and really vivid dreams are a major part of my suffering. I get a headache almost every morning I get up. Initially the dreams drove me crazy-death, humiliation, pain, stress, fear, powerlessness, guilt, shame, are the common themes and emotions in my dreams. They still bother me a lot but now that it has been a long time (about 4 years) I have learned to move beyond them and divert myself. It gets me really tired and never feel I have slept enough.
I wanted to know if this is a common symptom of people suffering from depression and anxiety?
