I dreamed I was tapped

I dreamed I was tapped in the course of my job for the CDC to inject some cows with anthrax. I was terrified, but I did my job. Three cows, three different injection points, each spot marked carefully with an iodine “X”. I had to take the vaccine and spend a few days in an isolation ward afterwards. I returned home to find the river massively receded and everyone in the city facing north–watching the mushroom cloud over Seattle. (Portland isn’t close enough to Seattle for this, but it made the dream more terrifying.) The whole city was gone. The skies over Portland turned unnaturally dark.

Can I please just never sleep again?
