Are you looking for binge worthy shows streaming now? Check out the top 30 shows I’ve binge watched since I became chronically ill.
Since I became ill last year, I’ve gotten to know Netflix, Hulu and Prime Video better than I ever imagined possible. I’ve always loved a good TV show, but I’ve never been one to lay around and binge watch TV all day.
However, I am very grateful for all of these streaming services right now. When I’m unable to work because of pain or brain fog, I can turn on the TV and take my mind off of it for a while.
I find that averting my mind from pain is a great tool for dealing with what I’m going through. As much as I love to read, most days it’s just too much for me, especially if I’ve done any work. So I turn on the TV and I’m okay with that.
You heal better when you’re happy, so I try to focus on having fun and enjoying the time I have, however I can find to enjoy it. Oftentimes these days, that means finding a good show to binge watch.
I’m only listing the shows I’ve actually binged through. The ones that made the cut. A few of these shows I may have started in the past, but finally finished up.
I typically have a policy where I give a show four episodes before I give up on it. I have a little less patience these days, and some shows have got shut off after 10 minutes. But know that I have watched every single episode of the shows listed (unless it’s one I’m binging now).
There are lots of other shows I’ve watched. These are literally just the shows I’ve watched from beginning to end since getting sick. I’ve had to dig deep to find some of them because I’ve watched all the standard binge watch shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Lost.
My husband and I are watching Shameless together, and I just started watching Kim’s Convenience on Netflix. It’s a Canadian show, and it’s really funny so far!
I hope you discover a new show to watch on my list. And I’d love any recommendations for new shows to binge watch!
