Does this ever happen to you guys?我的梦想往往是周期性的——我会连续几周不做梦(或者至少我不会记得它们),然后砰的一声!For a week,I'm waking up every night in a mess of twisted blankets with a deep frown line creased into my forehead.Yikes.Maybe it's hormonal or something?Anyway,I'm no expert on what dreams actually mean,但我知道,当我从一个特别糟糕的梦中醒来时,可能需要几个小时才能恢复正常。谁有时间做这个?

Here are five terrifying nightmares about sex,dating and relationships,and how to remedy the bad taste they leave in your mouth that's even worse than your usual morning breath.

Nightmare: Your significant other dies.Oof.最坏的一群。Dreaming about the death of a loved one makes you feel like you got punched in the unconscious gut.Dreaming of death doesn't really foreshadow an actual tragedy,but there's no way you're not going to feel freaked out and overprotective for a minimum of 48 hours.

Remedy:Tell him you love him immediately.也,call everyone else you know and say the same.I mean really,why not?生命短暂。

Nightmare: You hooked up with someone really,really inappropriate.Like your dad's best friendor a teenage celebrity,在梦里,you liked it.A lot.When you wake up,you feel like barfing at the memory.

Remedy:Long,scalding hot shower with extra body scrub and never speak of this again.

Nightmare: The guy who just broke your heart comes back.He tells you he's so sorry and he loves you more than ever,and you get married and make beautiful babies.Why is this a nightmare?It's not,until you wake up and remember it's not true and never going to happen,and you relive the breakup all over again.In my expert experience,this frequently occurs just when you're starting to feel better about a devastating split.Thanks,REM cycle.

Remedy:Wipe your tears,起来穿衣服,and demand that your best friend take you out for morning mimosas.

Nightmare: You cheat on your guy.You'd never do it in real life but Dream You is the worst girlfriend ever!Bonus shame points if it was with his brother,or if your boyfriend caught you in the dream and you laughed in his face.放松点,女孩,you didn't do it in real life.

Remedy:Even though you didn't actually do anything wrong and don't need to feel guilty,do a good deed for karma's anyway.Maybe you're subconsciously feeling bad about something else,and hey,it never hurts to do something nice,正确的?

Nightmare: You run into your ex-boyfriend and he asks if you're pregnant,than says you've really put on a lot of weight.Sorry,I don't know if this actually happens to anyone else,but this is theexact两天前的梦。It.Was.Awful.

Remedy:Liquid diet for one month.I'm kidding,I'm kidding.I did do ten extra minutes of yoga that morning (because that will totally make a difference),but mostly I just laughed it off,我在梦中穿着的任何不讨人喜欢的衣服都会在心里燃烧。

Do you ever have any of these relationship nightmares?What's the worst dream you've ever had?Do you find it difficult to snap out of your bad dream mood too?
