Having nightmares during a depressive episode every. Single. Night! They are so bad that they wake me up and make me cry in my sleep!! They feel so real!! Does anybody have any techniques on how to resolve this?? Please!! 

There is a medication called prazosin that is used in some cases of nightmares.

I would strongly suggest letting your doc know about the nightmares, if you haven't already done so, and see what doc recommends.

Here is a decent article I found about nightmares in people with bipolar disorder:
