Kamianne, the only reason I was even thinking about jury duty was because my sister-in-law was just called. To understand my stress, I guess you would have to understand my life a little more. I have had colitis since I was 10, I've ALWAYS been a worry wart
If I didn't have SOMETHING to worry about, how would I pass the time?? LOLOL
I am really trying to calm down about things though. I'm trying deep breathing, and that's helping some. And I try to have the attitude that someone else here on the boards told me about that really stuck out. She said instead of always asking "What If??", just say "So What!!" And that really makes sense to me. If I ever do have another accident (and I really hope I don't, but if I DO...) it's not the end of the world. I try to keep telling myself that, even though I panic and get very nervous when I feel an attack coming on. So I guess this attitude is a little easier to have AFTER an attack than when it's happening. But I am trying to gain a little more self-confidence and just try not to worry about things. I know I must sound like a total dingbat asking about jury duty when I haven't been called yet, but like I said, it was just on my mind because my sister-in-law had to go. If my number ever DOES come up, I'll just get a note from my doctor and I guess just do the best that I can if they don't excuse me. P.S. I don't suppose the fact that my 1st cousin is a police officer would help me any would it?? LOL
He's told me some terrible stuff, and I would tend to side with the police I think after talking to him
Oh well, just wondered
Grabbing at straws here
Take care all, and thanks for the responses!!
