  Call Center Purgatory is One Year Old Today.

"Perhaps a man really dies when his brain stops, when he loses the power to take in a new idea. There are a lot of people like that. Dead minds, stopped inside. Just keep moving backwards and forwards on the same little track, growing fainter all the time, like ghosts." Pg 188-George Orwell Coming up For Air

One year ago I started this blog because my job was driving me crazy. I was dreaming about it almost every night. I was going home swearing under my breath, and felt like I would explode. I was so full of toxic mental waste that I was having problems functioning.

Things haven't really changed much at my job, but I have. I understand my world and who I am better. I've found a voice and a message that I did not know was in me. I'm not always happy, but I have found a measure of peace through the blog.

At first it seemed like all I was doing was whining about my job, but it became more than that. After you put into words what bothers you, and you know that people have seen it and understand it, you have an incredible sense of relief. Its like what has been bothering you has lost its power.

For that understanding and help, I want to thank all of the kind people that have read my blog. I consider you my friends and confidants. There are too many of you to mention, but some of you have went out of your way to promote my blog and I appreciate that help more than you will know.
As always, thanks for reading!

P.S. If you've enjoyed the blog, it would mean a lot to me if you'd comment or drop me an email. Thanks.
Congratulations on the anniversary. That's a lot of blogging. Keep it up.
Happy 1 yr anniversary. Glad the blog's helped you get some clarity. I've been there... where I was just bound up like a little ball of nerves every day. Now I'm down to like one day a week :)
well heck yeh I've enjoyed your blog. Unfortunately you can't buy your cyber friends a drink on special occasions.
well congratulations! a lot of the people i've listed under my favorite blogs have stopped writing for one reason or another.

nevertheless, i'm glad that you're here updating your blog and sharing with us your thoughts and feelings. =)

Happy anniversary! I'm strongly believe that you're not the only one getting something of value from your blog--we are too.

Happy Birthday, Cog. You're an inspiration. I'm sure He Up There has something good in store for you. Look forward to seeing how you move on. Keep your spirits up and keep blogging!
I never knew a blog could do so much. Glad to see you feel better than a year ago. You know, you have one of those queer jobs whose meaning, function and necessity i will never understand. And that makes you exotic to my eyes. Keep it up.
Happy blogging birthday.
There was me thinking you wouldn't last more than a couple of months. ;-)

Glad to see you're still at it.

Purgatory: A place of suffering and torment with an unknown duration. In Roman Catholic Theology-the place where the dead are purified from their sins.
