RE: [IP] Doing Jury Duty



 Paula, I had to stop doing jury duty because they did not want me to test
my blood while in the jury box. That was sometimes 4 hours. I was on a pump
and could go all day without eating, but I would not go that long without
testing my BG. So got a note from Dr. Saying I was Diabetic on a pump and it
required me to test 10 times a day. I have been excused ever since I
submitted the note.

Has anyone on the list had to do jury duty.  If so, how did it work out for 
you eating, checking your BG, and using pump.  Filled out the questionnaire 
they sent, sent it back noting I was diabetic, they sent back stating I 
needed medical documentation stating I was medically impaired.  I don't 
think I am that, especially after having 6 children but just need to know 
how to handle BG under circumstance if I get picked.

Thanks, Paula
