CP05 Notice in received in February- Then NOTHING

I filed mid- end of Jan.  Beginning/ Middle of February I received a CP05 notice and then no further communication from the IRS.  I call for more information and I am instructed to call back in 45 days if I haven't relieved any more communication.  I have been calling every 30 and 45 days as instructed only to be told to call back in 30- 45 more days.  This has been going on since February.  Is there some sort of time limit my return can be kept in limbo? Or is this my real life now:  Calling the IRS every 30- 45 days only to be told to call back in 30- 45 days- like a scene from "The Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray   I have a substantial refund due as I didn't work for several months, but when I was working I was taxed at a much higher tax bracket so my income for the year is really low compared to the withholding.  I get the flag and the review, but seriously... when does it end?  Any suggestions as to what I can do or expect? Or should I just give up and realize I am insignificant in the eyes of the government that relies on my tax dollars to survive and will never see this money again?
