(I realize I'm posting it twice, but only like three people looked at the last one in as many hours, so I figured I needed a flashier subject heading)
I'm going to Israel in a couple weeks for a semester-abroad program in Jerusalem. I was wondering if somebody could let me know about the medical situation there; I really don't know what to expect and I'm a little nervous. I figure since it's a Jewish country and Crohn's is a Jewish disease they'll have a good idea how to handle my case should anything happen, is this true?
I know that I should come with all the medications I need, but will I be okay in an emergency? What about pain medication - I don't know if doctors feel comfortable prescribing in bulk (especially to an 18 year old) - will I be able to get it there?
Is there anything else I should know? I'm really nervous, and could really use the advice. I've barely been away from home before.
