jury duty...
« on: January 11, 2018, 06:26:17 AM »
Got a letter re jury duty in early February.  Actually, this doesn't mean that I'll actually be chosen. (?)

The day after the jury duty, I start a mindfulness course at St. Michael's hospital.

I'm going to tell them via letter I can't go because of the course.  Also, the course is important for me, as I've been taking meds for depression and anxiety (more for depression) forever.

Re proof of the above, I have semi-flimsy proof like my medications record from my pharmacy, but it only goes back a year.  I also have an appointment card that mentions the time and date of the course.


If need be, I guess I could get a letter from my nurse p or Dr.

 Hello Peter. The stuff that you have may be enough, but a letter from a nurse or doctor would be better.  Good Luck with everything. Take Care. paul m

Hi Peter,

Not to worry. I had a questionnaire quite a few years ago. I put that I had a mental illness and was excused from possibly serving.

Paul and Dragonfly, you're both right.

I was in a hurry (from procrastinating!), so I didn't get a letter from my nurse p.

My oldest brother just told them he has a mental illness with out a note from Dr., I think.

Thanks.  I got a phone call from them that I'm "excused."
