I hate going through this

Just trying to clear my mind and make it believe that it will be okay when it actually wants me to think that it will not be okay!!!!! I have been summoned for jury duty on Monday and I’m freaking out. I am scared to go and get a panic attack while being there. I hate this so much because this isn’t the only time that this has happened to me!!! I want to be able to go somewhere and not worry about getting a panic attack. I’m just scared to go through it and being surrounded by people who don’t even know what I am really going through... ugh I don’t want to go but I don’t want to get fined either...

Can relate to all of this. Been suffering from anxiety most of my life but the last 18 months have been the worst. Every day i feel like I'm dying i have funny legs that tingle feel like they don't walk at times strange feelings in head have to keep resting between attacks. Going to tbe shops is a real battle takes me most of the day to get the courage to go. Some days stomache pains indigestion stinging back only to always be told it's anxiety. Some days i wake up and wonder what use i am to anybody. Tried meds been worse on them. Doctors just seem to ask me what i want to take last time i said well i don't know are you sure this is anxiety. His answe was what do you think it is.

Hi Dorsey I have been similar unfortunately it's very debilitating. Do you work? I haven't been able to due to my anxiety, panic and PTSD for the last 6months but I feel I'm making progress it's slow but just take baby steps to take on new challenges like going to the shops, going out to have coffee or just getting out in the garden etc... Hope you are ok xx

I feel for you as I think I would be trying to get out of it as its an all day thing and long hours. If you feel you can't do it then go to your doctor and get them to write you a medical reason so you don't have to. It's the only option unless you are ok with trying to do it but don't put yourself in that situation if it's going to send you through the roof Hun xx

You can get your doctor to give you an excuse. Just say your not stable at this time medically. I have done this. You mail it to the court or call them and tell them you have a medical excuse. They won't question you at all. Good luck. Even tho you won't need it. Take a few slow breaths you'll be fine ☺
