Yesterday I returned from a Leave of Absence (LOA). My boss said to me that we were talking about the idea of being off of work for 2 months, and how nice it would be to be able to do that. She said "I mean it's not like you off on a beach in Hawaii sipping Mai tais. But I'm sure it has it's cons to being out on a leave of absence."
I responded with "Absolutely not, there is nothing nice about being on a 2nd leave of absence due to mental illness. Its a relief (pro) when you don't have the responsibility to go to work, but the cons certainly outweigh the pros and there's nothing nice about struggling from mental health issues and fighting depression. That is not a vacation and it's not nice being out for that amount of time from work."
I know this was uncalled for and very unprofessional. Could this possibly be a legal issue? The fact that she stated "we were talking" gives me the feeling she talked to others about my issues.
Any feed back would be appreciated.
