1. Your lawyer tells you he thinks he's gonna get you off, but jury's can be unpredictable.

It's just like that. But we're facing four to life.

3. Perfect description...

Throughout this general election cycle, I was looking forward to voting (which, in this state, is mail-only). But, when I actually deposited my ballot, and found out it had been counted, I felt no elation -- only the dread feeling that my own vote in a deep-blue state counts for little, and that we were now at the mercy of voters from very different states than mine, in whose judgment, based on four years ago, I had zero confidence. And, beyond that consideration, not 100% confidence that the will of the voters will ever be known or allowed to prevail, thanks to an administration with no commitment to democracy, state legislatures filled with religious-right ideologues in gerrymandered positions and, of course, our newly-packed SCOTUS.

5. Pretty much same

We also have vote by mail I dropped mine and wife's off instead of mailing it. Now we have to wait and see how crazy it has really become..Does America survive or not.

9. Zero confidence is irrational at this point.

Caution is warranted but that POV is as detached from reality as Trumpers who think there is no way he can lose.

4. I have moments of peace, then apprehension slips in some and I find myself on edge.

Never been through anything such as this before. It being felt personally and collectively with those of one mind and of one accord.

6. Yes

None of us have been through anything that even comes close, like world war we must win to survive as a country.

7. Yes, it is.

I have taken off work the first three days of next week and I wanted to take off the whole week but couldn't get it approved. I suspect I'll be a mess Monday and Tuesday.
