Problems with normal life after time travel

Something for you to consider today is the post time travel life style you'll have. It may come to a point like it did with me that you simply want to stop traveling and settle down. Ignoring the potential for you to be violently ripped away from your timeline there's the problem of what time travel may have done to you and your mind. Sometimes nearby timelines bleed through and you'll instinctively know it and yet there's nobody to talk about it with and even if there were they wouldn't fully understand it like you do. Sometimes these little discrepancies you wouldn't notice before are so glaringly obvious you can't ignore them but you also can't do anything about them. For example previously when a timeline would bleed over you would be just as effected as those around you and thus your memories would also be adjusted to reflect any such changes and back and so everything would always appear normal even if it wasn't. Now that you're no longer effected by these changes you'll notice when your friend is suddenly acting differently but treats it as normal behavior.

Then there's all of your memories to consider. In all the time traveling you may have done you're bound to remember all kinds of things. The problem with this is discrepancies in timelines where it might not seem like much but it can be really annoying when you're so sure of something and are completely wrong due to timeline changes. In a personal example I was watching a movie with a friend I'd already seen in a different timeline and there was an entire scene I remembered so vividly that simply wasn't in this version and it was driving me insane because of how similar the versions were and yet how this entire scene simply wasn't there anymore. I also then can't discuss this non existent scene with anyone without looking as insane as it would sound.

It's also difficult sometimes to restrain yourself from proving  yourself to everyone by simply telling them the future and saying what you know they're going to say before they do. The complete predictability of everything around you can become annoying for a while then simply monotonous and boring frustratingly so even. Then there's some of the more powerful and annoying timewaves you'll feel hit you from time to time. Sometimes they can nearly knock you off your feet and give you massive headaches. They're often accompanied by fragmented visions of the event that created them which can leave you disoriented for minutes to hours at a time. Then there's times where you simply have to stop yourself as you realize the consequences of whatever you're about to do or say and have to consider whether or not you should continue given that you now know precisely what will come of it.

In the end there's no real stopping this ability you've developed and it's probably just in your best interest to keep yourself busy exploring new timelines as just continuing from where you are under the monotonous conditions is just as insanely annoying as becoming unstuck in time.

On one final side note, you may want to invest in some mouth wash. I neglected to mention the annoying taste in your mouth you might often get after time traveling and sometimes among other things, either way your oral hygiene is something you'll want to keep on top of.


  1. Wouldn't you be able to tell other time traveler apart from one another? Don't you guys have code words and what not?

    Teach me! And we can discuss the timeline bleedings and what not. :P

    1. It's possible you can sense another time traveler near by and where they've been within the context of where you are at the time however there are simply so many timelines constantly shifting it's fairly unlikely you'll directly encounter another by chance given that there are relatively few of us in comparison which I admit to be curious as I would expect there to be higher dimensional beings constantly moving, though perhaps they exist in many places at once unlike us which is why I am as of yet unaware of them. It's hard to explain what it's like to exist in a higher dimension than what you're intended.
