The good news about recovering from Guillain-Barre Syndrome is, well, recovering. The bad news is that my NetFlix queue is now growing again instead of shrinking. For some people, that would be okay, but dang it, I had a GOAL! And not reaching that goal feels a little like failure.
I’ve actually watched very few movies in the last month or so, choosing instead to watch TV shows (most of them good), and TedTalks (almost all of them very good). It’s hard to commit to watching something for two hours when you don’t have a good, two hour chunk of time available. The one hour shows are perfect for the evenings, and the TedTalks are great for the little breaks I need to take during the day to rest my eyes. I’ll say it again, if you have NetFlix instant watch and aren’t watching the TedTalks, you’re missing out on some amazing things.
Below are the movies and TV series I’ve been watching since Part III of this series:
