I was laid off 2 years ago from a job I could no longer stand anyway. That was a good thing back then, the layoff. But recently they re-hired me on a different shift to replace someone who is on disability for 3 months. So it's a temporary, consulting thing. Even though I have to pay $20 a day just to park, the money is decent. It's the first paycheck I've had in two years. But it's incredibly depressing to be back there, especially on the midnight shift. On this shift there is little to do and my co-workers are disinterested and not good to be around. Like a living death. The workplace has all the same problems it did when I last worked there, and I can't change them. And I have all the same bad feelings about it and about myself, that I had 2 years ago. Every time my shift ends I feel powerless, stupid, ashamed, and want to get as far away as possible, then go home and sleep all day, because I'd rather be unconscious. I can just barely stand to be there. To make it worse, I can't get a similar job at a different workplace. I'm not in a good mental state to interview, to try to prove my worth to strangers. My rent is too high so I can't afford not to do this. This situation seems like the only option and it's a dreary and depressing one.
