I've missed a few of my other classes' lectures from a combination of power outages and lack of sleep (working on legal writing). Where I used to be pretty excited about going to lectures, now I just dread them, scared I'll be called on that day.
dude/dudette, if you're spending so much time on legal writing that you're lacking sleep and missing class, you're spending way too much time on them. There is no way that any homework you get for that class should be taking you that long. I don't say that to be disparaging, you just should stop spending so much time on LRW assignments, even if you have graded LRW you still shouldn't be spending that much time on them.
As for worrying about being called on, don't. I can tell you that I had embarrassingly bad cold-calls in almost all of my classes 1L, no teachers remember that stuff, none of your normal peers will care/judge you for messing up, and those that do are pieces of trash who should be euthanized anyway so who cares what they think.
