How long did you go without a job for? Did you have refernces? How did you explain the gap in your work historY?
You're going back soon, right? I hope you can reenter the environment and keep the reason you were out short and sweet. It's not anyone's business to know why you were out but they will ask and some may even get nosey. I would just keep your answer very brief like "I was sick" or
"it's a long story" and don't elaborate as much as you think it would help.
The workplace is the worst place for people to know your private business, especially if you work with alot of women. Too many gossipers, if you ask me.
