Non-scary kind of random post-apocalyptic dream
So I woke up today from a strange kind of post-apocalyptic dream, and I was thinking about it all day. I was hoping anybody had any ideas of potential meanings, just for fun.
I was living in a this street with half-abandoned houses. It was kind of up a hill, old Europe-y vibe. the houses were kind of colorful though, even though some were fully crumbled, and even our house was kind of falling apart. We did live in the "poor" part of town though. I found this out in the dream when I had to go to the rich part for my job and it was full of all-intact white houses, a bit too pristine. they were all fully lived in too. We also moved houses in the dream, to a slightly bigger house someone from our group discovered to be empty - but just across the street from the old house, still in the poor part of town. I vaguely remember being afraid of leaving someone behind, but that person chose to go somewhere else.There were about 4 or 5 pairs living in this new bigger house (just across the street, looked like an abandoned shopping mall).
Anyway, the main thing about this post-apocalyptic world is that a lot of people became infected with this thing. Anytime people were infected, they would get paired with someone else who was also also infected. From this pair however, only one person could transform into something (a hybrid between an animal and a monster, kind of like pokemon I guess), the other person looked normal - they just now had this connection. Think of the movie "the golden compass". Uninfected people were neither paired nor could transformed. This street, and actually entire city was mostly made up of infected people though. I was also infected, and sometimes I was the normal person in the pair, others I was the one turning.
We would all go out to do normal things during the day, the only thing is that we had to be careful not to be seen (this also happened when we were moving). This was part of the routine though, and it was like nothing was wrong.
For some reason, at some point I had to go to a different city. Everybody was worried about me but I was totally relaxed at first. I started walking, but when I got to stand below a highway bridge I started to worry because I remembered that in other cities people were scared of the infected people, and I were prejudiced as well. I noticed the area below the bridge looked abandoned, had a bunch of debris, and was also partially flooded. When I noticed the flooding was not that shallow, I started panicked a bit about drowning or getting lost. My pair though turned into what I can only describe as giant fluffy water dragon and I was like "oh yeah, this is super lucky, I forgot for a sec they could do that".
We rode in the water until we got into this half-abandoned, half-ruined subway/train, and went looking for a seat. As soon as I sat down, I looked to the side and saw a bunch of half-dead people. I froze. They were the normal, non-infected people and I was afraid of what they would think when they saw my pair.
The train had started moving though so I couldn't just leave, and I decided to pretend everything was fine and hope they wouldn't notice.
I noticed a few of them were starting to look ovei in my direction, and they seemed intrigued, but not angry or anything else, so I was relieved again.
Then i woke up.
So I woke up today from a strange kind of post-apocalyptic dream, and I was thinking about it all day. I was hoping anybody had any ideas of potential meanings,...

I was in a car with my mom. She was driving and I was in the passenger seat. We were on the highway and a car pulled out and it didn’t hit us but it scared my mom. She started going really fast and wouldn’t slow down even though I kept trying to get her to calm down. She was just staring off and kept going faster until it reached over 200mph and then I woke up. I think the car crashed. Idk if the dream means anything or was just a random dream but if you have any interpretations I would love to hear them and would appreciate it <3

The most vivid dream I've had in years
I was driving a big rig truck (I'm not a truck driver and never have been) down a dark highway through some slush. i was having fun driving recklessly, swerving between lanes through the ice and getting back over just in time to not hit a car. At a point I stop driving so carelessly just in time to go over a very thin one lane "video game esque" bridge and proceed.
As I'm driving I see a cat ahead trying to cross the road but the opposite lane is full of traffic and scaring it. I stop the truck in a way that blocks all traffic and the cat (a siamese) runs to me and jumps in my arms. I take it with me.
I'm missing a small part of the dream here
As it picks up I'm still driving the truck but have now picked up my ex as a hitchiker. I drive around running errands (dream shows me from out of body going in a building and out). At each stop I notice the moon keeps eclipsing making it seem like daylight briefly but whenever I notice it, it seems to go back to normal night time.
We drive to my grandpa's house and I go inside for a bit, then come out to get my ex. I warn him theres an eclipse and not to look at the sun in a rude voice and bring him inside. In the corner of the living room there's a bed frame and a large enough suitcase for him to sleep in and I tell him he can rest there and go to find him a blanket.
I can only find one blanket besides my own but it smells bad. I bring it to him but he found one already and has made himself comfortable. I walk him to a closet to tell him he can help himself to anything in it.
The closet I "know" is full of like desk toys and little tourist trap crap we got on wholesale, and theres two circlular racks in front of it full of snacks. He can help himself but 'these have to last for us" there's also a bunch of I <3 NY stuff on it.
At a point the cat I picked up in the truck has turned into Princess, a cat I left with my ex because she liked him best.
My interpretation: The stuff with my ex, my grandpa's house, the I <3 NY stuff and the cat make sense. I feel a lot of guilt for how things ended with my ex because while both our financial situations crumbled (Mine due to my grandpa's death, hence the presence of his house) I ended up able to move out of state and am mostly fine and supported while his situation is more precarious (and i have lost contact with him for the last month because he finally stopped pretending he was able to be friends with me after). I miss my cat and worry if she's okay, and I do miss some stuff about NY since I'd lived away from the state for five years and only got to be home for one before I had to leave again.
I can't pinpoint what the eclipse, driving the truck recklessly, and driving the truck normally mean though. Maybe the truck could be how I kinda dove headfirst into my new relationship only a month after my breakup and now I'm taking things a little more seriously but still doing well? but I don't get it fully and the eclipse and running errands with a trailer eludes me entirely.
On the bright side I told my boyfriend the dream and he picked up on the latter part of it well, said once covids over we can look at visiting NY and doing the stuff I missed out on doing again because of covid (Like apple picking, it's all little homesick stuff).

I fall asleep asking myself what should I do with my relationship. This is the dream I had:
I was in an unknown place, there was a gas station, I believe I was on the highway. I knew I had to go to a beach that I go every year for holidays, my parents have a house there and my boyfriend's parents too. I was in between the city where I used to live and the beach (they are two hours apart).
I was waiting that someone could pick me up until I saw an old lover I had (we didn't end up well, he really messed up with myself) and we started chatting, and I'm like 'hmm maybe he THINKS about me after all' as an ego trip, not expecting to fall in love again or anything. Everything was going good until he meets her girlfriend. She was blonde (he once told me that a tarotist told him that he was going to marry a blonde girl - I'm not)
Then, in this place I see a couple, that are friends of my actual boyfriend, we talked about their baby, about coronavirus, and she didn't want me to hug her because of the virus. I was happy because I could prove this guy that I didn't need him and that I knew people. I ask them if they can give me a ride, and I don't remember what happens next. But, I think that I'm stuck in this place.

Recently had a dream that I was driving down the highway in my area only to see multiple mushroom clouds forming in the distance in multiple directions. Upon further mental examination of that dream I decided to throw it out there and see if the collective dream scape of Reddit has been apocalyptic, perhaps foreshadowing negative global events. Not trying to be morbid just doing this for amateur scientific exploration.
