In brief: Depression dreams

It is not "normal" to be depressed, but each person experiences depression a little differently.
Dreams are one way in which the state of depression can express itself. Your sister's form seems to include feelings of being "lost." when i treat people, i find their dreams to be extremely useful -- and that they change as recovery proceeds. Your sister's dreams can be personal signals too.

In brief: Normal

Dreams are just dreams.
Some analyze the content, I have found doing so to not be helpful. If the dreams persist, check with the doctor. Sometimes dreams change as side effects to medications.
