*Hugs*

I hope you have a functioning family that can comfort you at this time!!
Reach out to your union even if it is not the ideal union. Keep a record of everytime you contacted your school regarding your business affairs.

This is good in the sense that your eyes are open now, and can focus your energy on more productive things.

Hey Sang Froid, I am 39. Too young for a hysterectomy IMO but it is what it is. I guess there is no age limit to foolish issues with coworkers. Many of them are older than I am.

Thanks Derri,
 
I have an awesome family! They have been very supportive during this time. I have all of my documentation in a separate email folder. Sadly, I went through this before when I had a myomectomy 7 years ago. I had to get an attorney.

@UrbanElegance: I know exactly how you feel! I broke my arm going to the gym after work and had to take 6 weeks off. My boss and everyone else acted like I was lying about it, as if I somehow convinced the doctor to give me a sick leave! This bish was so rude about too, she even went so far as to ask me if I could come in just to "see everyone". I said hell no, I'm not going anywhere in that condition and then she asks me if I'm wearing a cast or not and all sorts of other shyt.

Like everyone else, learn to separate work from your real life and and do so quickly. These people only care when you provide for them. In any other instance, they couldn't give a damn. Do not let your hurt feelings about it take over. When you're busting your ass, remember that you're doing this for the kids and out of personal pride for a job well done. Steel yourself against their attitude at all times. Basically, learn to be a hypocrite at work. It's sad but this is what it takes.

Also,like Trudawg said, make sure you are covered legally. Make sure you keep all e-mail/faxes/doctors note, etc.. that justify your sick leave and when you get back, keep a diary, for a while anyway. So that if they try to do something slick with your job, you are prepared. Contact your teachers union/association or whatever entity is pertinent and make sure you know your rights. You are in my thoughts! Take care!

Yea a lot of ppl are bitter and hateful and don't want to gove ppl any extra attention. It was probably that one bitter person in the office that mention you might be lying for attention and it caught on.

Don't let it get to you cause they will get what's coming to them. When any pf them need your help give with a smile and maybe they will learn

most people are simply only concerned for their own interests in work environments...it's unfortunate...

@ Urban Elegance: I'm getting one next Tuesday and I know how you feel. It's a difficult surgery emotionally. I'v had a myomectomy before, as well. You're in my prayers!

My last place of employment was allllll in my life when I had a car accident and had to miss work for 4 months. They mailed me flowers, cookies and a card during the time I was out of work. Random employees were even asking my boss for my phone number and address to come and visit me at my home when I left the hospital. No thanks. LOL
 
Where I work now, everyone is in their own zone, and I do not mind.
 
I do not think it is something we should "expect"..

My sister is going through the same thing.
The fact of the matter is at the end of the day, no one cares. It sucks, but that is the truth. My sister had to go to the school to sign papers and they only asked her when she's coming back not because they cared, but because they wanted to know when she was coming back so that they wouldn't have to pick up the slack. Only one coworker sent a get well card.
