I take seroquel for many years, I also suffer from bipolar disorder ... what you have experienced, so have I.
The reason is that this med causes very vivid dreams, in some cases it makes people re live past events (in their dreams) which as you mention have scarred people for life developing PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) which I also suffer from.
Perhaps you need a dose adjustment, talk to your Dr. about it and I think it may help you to take less of this medication for some time.-
