I made the human resources call today. I was left upset and depressed. I got all red and teary. Not good.
I get three months leave: eight weeks paid in full, four weeks unpaid. I understand that this is better than what many people get. I understand that too many women donít get paid a cent. But when the words three months were said out loud, all I could think of was how teeny three-month-old babies are. They canít even sit up yet.
Look at me at that age. How am I going to do this?
