Jury duty

Has anyone had to go to jury duty while experiencing IBS symptoms? How does the court handle it?

  1. ,

    Oh, my gosh, I never considered Jury Duty. I wish I had something constructive to say here, but I don't have any experience with this particularly difficult IBS situation. Hopefully, someone will chime in. Please let us know if you find any more details. Perhaps a doctor's note? Thank you for your question and I hope you are well today. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team

    1. Thank you. Yes. It’s always been my worst nightmare! My dr did write an excuse for me. I also attached my own comments about how IBS affects my life. I am hoping I will be excused but if I’m not....I was wondering how the court handles it.

  2. Wow, I am so sorry that sounds extremely stressful. I would call and check with the court by letting them know you have a medical condition and have your doctor write documentation that you need to be excused at times.

    1. Thank you. I’m already worrying about it. I’m hoping the court will let me know one way or the other if I’m excused or not. If not I’ll just be stressing over it till court date 10/31. I will try calling bf that.

  3. I have gotten out of it twice. Hopefully you won't have to go. Praying it works out

    1. THANK YOU!! That gives me hope. I’ve been praying, too. ❤️

    2. Yw ❤️

  4. I have been excused. Now I can relax.

    1. What a relief, ! Really glad to hear this. Thanks for the update! - Chris, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
