A few days ago I was robbed at gunpoint and assaulted. Since then I've been feeling rather fragile and traumatized, and like the world world is a bad, scary place. I've been comforting myself by watching the seasons of Glee on Netflix, but I'm almost through those. I need recommendations for other feel-good TV shows and movies. I don't want anything dark or depressing. I'm going to have a lot of down time the next week off work, so please recommend some free stuff to keep my spirits up. I have access to Netflix and Amazon Prime. I'm not particularly into Hallmark movies or frat-bro type comedies, but I'm open to anything. I am a fan of musicals, fantasy, historical, and indie movies. Tell me what I can watch to make me feel better about the world. (Also, I'm recovering from a head injury from the attack and the doctor recommended "brain rest" and avoiding action movies with lots of fast movement and explosions and such that can trigger symptoms. I'm mostly past that point, but thought I'd throw that in there.)
(Bonus question: I'll also take recommendations for any online groups or websites that might help me feel better or offer support.)
