Oh Confused....you are about
the same age as my daughter, she will be 23 in 3 months, and I could not imagine holding money over her head to get her to do what I want her to do. She was pregnant at 19, delivered when she was 20. I could hear her now if I would have ever tried telling her she can't talk to her friends!!!! Oh my, the fit she would have!!!
You NEED your friends for support. Are you able to still go to the therapist? If you can still go, talk to your therapist about
what they are doing and see if he/she has a suggestion. It just isn't right...not even being able to CALL your friends and you so desperately need them. I hope it at least makes you feel better that all of us here are on your side and think your parents are way out of line in controlling you/your actions/your life so much.
Now, this is just what I would do (I'm not telling you to do the same).... I would find a way to contact my friends who are nearby and let them in on the secret, that I am are home but aren't allowed to let anybody know for a few months.... If I knew my friends, they would figure out a way we could hang out for a few hours somewhere or even just email/IM until April.
I just cannot tell you how sorry I am that your parents treat you like this. I hope that someday you will be able to stand up for yourself against them, but they seem like they will always try to hold something over your head....So you may have to decide you need your freedom more than whatever it is they hold over you next.

To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
