Due to lack of finances I have to return to work sooner than I had hoped. I was planning on taking at least a year off but it seems 9 months is the limit!
I am returning to work on Monday and absolutely dreading it. Not only because I have to leave DS but because of the people I work with.
It's the sort of place where everybody pretends to be your best friend but the minute you turn your back there's a thousand knives in it. When DS was born I never heard from them.. no card, no flowers nothing! Nobody ever called or messaged to see how things were going.
I feel like an alien going back! I just feel like I don't fit in there any more and I know once everybody finds out I am returning they will be gossiping about me every chance they get!
So my point of this thread I guess is for those of you that returned to work after maternity leave did you feel like this? Or were you totally comfortable going back?
