She could only go out for school or activities, not for socializing. This limited her chances to hang out with friends. When she was 22, her mother got sick. The Doctors found a tumor in her brain and she needed surgery, chemo, and radiation.

Two years later, even when her mother got better, her mother continued with her strict rules. She was only allowed out until 9 pm and her family bothered her if she left. “Oftentimes, whenever I go somewhere, I would thousands of calls from my sister, mom, and dad telling me to come home,” she said.

She thought these rules only applied to whenever she hung out with her friends. But lately, she had been going to her cousin’s house and her sister said she could only leave the house once a week. Even though she did her chores and got groceries or gave her mother medicine, they still controlled her.
