You're hooked, eyes pinned open at all hours by sheer will power - a force so strong, you cannot look away. A sensation builds in your stomach every time you see the next episode or the following season suggestion... Sometimes the click of the mouse ceases to take action and the next episode starts anyway. It's meant to be! Emotions soar, reality no longer matters, the characters in your real life are on the back burner and the only thing that matters is the action taking place on the screen right front of you, and the line between what is real and what is not becomes blurred. Whether it involves a series or a movie, a Netflix addiction can take many forms. And be quite serious.
Below are 6 signs you may be suffering from Netfordias: a Netflix addiction.
1. Red Eyes

Your favorite character might die, the suspense might seem too much to handle at times, but it's nothing more Netflix can't fix!
Relax, the next season will come out sooner than you think.
Who needs friends, family, school or work to survive? Netflix can be that all and more.
New way to lose that unwanted belly fat.
6. Urinary tract infection or bowel obstruction
Careful, you might miss something super important if you get up to use the bathroom! Rewinding or pausing it takes away from precious viewing time. There's only so many hours in the day.
If you have been experiencing more than two of these symptoms for a week, then you may be advised to seek medical help. But just remember, you are not alone. About 99 percent of the population will suffer from this condition at least once in their lifetime.
*Disclaimer: Addictions are a very serious medical condition and should be taken very seriously. This piece was not written to make fun of this condition, it was meant to exaggerate the amount of time people spend on Netflix in a satirical way.
