    Can I teach overseas with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)?

    Hi there

    I'm contemplating doing a course to enable me to do some teaching overseas. I have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), which is an anxiety disorder. I take medication for this (Aropax).

    Has anyone had any experience with this? How easy would it be for me to get medication? Would there be any support available?


    Thanks

    Caitlin

    I'd try to get a supply before leaving and get a letter from your doctor, which you could get translated. Your medicine should be available- SSRIs are common enough, though I hadn't heard of that particular one.

    Thanks for that Tdol. What are SRRI's?

    Selective serotonin uptake inhibitors.
