A (long) break

Hello October, 

Thank you for your amazing start. After such a long discussion, deep thinking, and thoughtful negotiation, I am officially having my medical leave until next year.

Due to my health condition, I was advised to take a break from work and have some rest. Fortunately, my office and my bosses fully support and understand my situation. Normally, I am not eligible to take medical leave because I haven't work as permanent employee in 3 years and also the period of that leave is only 2 to 3 weeks. 

I was thinking to quit from work as le husb said that health is our first priority. It was a difficult decision for me. I am afraid I couldn't get such an amazing job like this. However, when I gave them my sad letter, my director offered such a tempting things. He said "take a little break. Set things and rules as you want but don't quit. You can come to office twice a week if you want. If you quit, I am afraid you will regret your decision. Why dont you try to have a break and see what it feels like. You already helped me a lot of things and now it's time for me to help you" he said.

It was a tough choice for me. To quit or to have break. And finally, here I am. 

I cant thank my head and my director  (and owner) enough for what they have done for me.  I feel valued and honoured. 

Warmest regards,
Nada Salma
