    13 Things That Happen When You Have A Proper Hangover

    No one deserves this.

    1. You wake up and you think it's just a normal morning.

    You're not entirely sure where you are, or who you are, but at this moment, you're not so worried.

    2. Then suddenly you remember that you drunk alcohol last night.

    3. Next comes the thirst and the crippling headache.

    Today is not going to be fun.

    4. You promise yourself this is the last hangover you will ever have, and from now on you will be a responsible adult.

    5. To distract you from your physical pain, a shamewave hits you like a ton of bricks.

    Shamewave: The technical term for when you physically feel embarrassed.

    6. You sit up to go and get water, and that's when the nausea comes.

    It feels like your brain is bouncing around inside your head and you're not sure how this is ever going to end.

    7. After realising you need to be horizontal. You simply lie there and think of all things you said and all the people you talked to.

    And think of everything you might have said when you don't remember anything.

    8. The time has come for you to check your phone and face reality.

    You will have texted your crush a suggestive string of emojis, and you will have a painful Uber receipt in your inbox.

    9. Eventually you will have to sit upright, this will suck, but it is necessary for life.

    10. Some how you get to the fridge without dying.

    You stare and you hope for bacon, you hope for bread, you hope for leftover pizza.

    11. At some point in the day you will find the strength to cook for yourself. It will be hard.

    You are allowed to rest your head on the counter / sit on the floor if it all gets a bit much.

    12. Eating the food can go two ways, either you will be sick, or you will see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    The pain and shame will finally start to fade away.

    13. Gradually your brain clears, you forget the trauma, and you start thinking, "You know what, I could do with a nice cold beer."

    Because humans are fundamentally stupid.
