Advice please: I have been off work for six months with severe depression and a endocrine disorder. On my return most colleagues have been friendly and accomodating. One colleague, however, has expressed to me how peeved she is that she will have to give up the classes she has been covering for me and "someone else will get all the glory'. This colleague is part time and agreed to change her timetable and up her hours on the understanding that when I returned she would fall back to her normal teaching timetable. She is, of course, being paid for her time. I have found her whispering in corners and looking tearful a number of times. I guess the problem is that her behaviour has made me feel really uncomfortable and upset - I haven't been on a world cruise! I feel I am having to apologise for my horrible illness. if she can say this to my face god knows what else she has been saying behind my back. I am close to my line manager and he has asked me to report how all is going during my phased return - should I mention her unhappiness and what i have encountered or put up and shut up? Many thanks.
