Incredibly Anxious About Jury Duty


So, yesterday, I spent eight hours at the courthouse, hoping and praying that I didn’t get picked to be a juror.

I was incredibly overwhelmed at the amount of people that are going to be on the case that we’re handling. Just being in that room was suffocating.

I can’t ask to be excused anymore, because I just went in there, thinking that I wasn’t gonna get picked.

Now that I am, I’m terrified.

How do I contribute to a decision in my panel, when I can’t even remember half of the things that the judge had explained to the potential jurors?

My anxiety is flaring up big time, you guys, and I’m just so scared…


I’ve never had jury duty because I’m in college. If you know who assigned it to you, let them know if you have any schooling going on.
