First of all, welcome to HealingWell and the depression forum. I am sorry that you have had to deal with depression at such a young age. I was a depressed teen too, so I know it isn't much fun.
As for nightmares, I dream a lot. But they say it is my medication, though I remember dreaming a lot all of my life. Not too many nightmares though. But often things can stimulate nightmares, things on our minds, watching scarey movies and sometimes they just plain happen. They say that your dreams can either be fears or desires. So that might shed some light on the subject. ARe you in any stressful situations at this time?
I just want to let you know that we all are here to support you. I hope that you feel better in the near future. Keep posting and let us know how things are going for you. Take care my friend. I think writing things down helps us a lot, so keep posting or start a journal. You can do a dream diary and try to figure out if something is stimulating the night mares, maybe things you eat before bed, or situations at hand. Write down what you had happen that day before you went to bed. When you wake up from a nightmare, or any dream, write it down on paper. Sometimes you can find a connection. I dream a lot. Every night and in color. Some people don't dream in color. Keep us posted.
