I've been sober for about a year, and only lately I've been having a lot of dreams/nightmares about the results of my drinking (usually dreams of the morning after etc). I've also had a lot of guilt hit me about my parenting (i.e. what are the after effects on my children, how could I have been so careless. what if X had happened while I was drinking). Has anyone had this happen - I could understand these feelings in the months immediately post-quit, but has anyone had them come back in waves like this? I should mention that I have a 3 month old and have been dx'd bipolar/depressive (right around the time I started drinking several years ago), so I'm also wondering if I'm getting this along with a dose of post-partum depression or other disorder.
