Perhaps the dreams are an outlet, particularly if you suppress emotions during the day. I wonder if there are any socially distanced ways to join a drama group. Just a thought. Some actors channel emotions from the past to help them convey emotions. That or maybe some contact with animals?Just recently I haven't been sleeping well and all my dreams have been really 'involved', that is whenever I wake up my mood is very much that of the dream. All the dreams are very loosely based on incidents in my life (which then get weird!) but the emotions on waking are pretty strong and it takes a while to level out. Not started any new meds or anything specific that I can blame, but it is getting pretty tiring. Hopefully level out with a bit of downtime over the break!
