If I feel sick or puke it up, I can moan all day.

Right Asher..rest assured not all of us Doha inbreds make it our life goal to be pissed most of the time...although, being in Qatar it is not an entirely bad idea.
Look, if and when you come over, shoot me a message and I will do my best to show you the ropes. (Almost 9 years in Qatar now )

And Asher, DO go to the Expatwoman site. As info on disability is very scarce here, you might find somebody there who can help you. Just disregard the self righteous babble

No, not really. although there are a few Dubai people on there now, the Qatar bunch is pretty harmless. And they do give info if they can.

debauchery sounds fun but my OH disaproves of me doing that

I don't get pissed any more, I seem to have hit that plateau where my liver is very efficient though I'm very glad that the opportunity exists

if we come i will be bugging the life out of you all for all the information I will need. namely where to buy alcohol and where the best parties are

Congrats to you, but remember to check on the drugs and medical insurance situation as these are probably bigger hurdles to conquer than your OH getting the job here.

For you.

thanks we have done some checking and asked, the medical cover we are told is sorted whether that is true or not remains to be seen!

I think it will be a few months before we get there as I expect bureaucracy is mad and red tape is the order of the day. Mind he has been told the post is vacant now and they want him asap how long does it usually take to sort it all out?

I believe visas/RPs can / are sorted in country.

Do not come until you know for sure, seriously. And every time someone tells you it is sorted check it for yourself as invariably it isn't sorted. Get everything in writing because when you are here people will do anything to avoid paying out.

So Check, Check, Double Check and check again whilst getting it in writing. You then stand half a chance.
