well you're 18 years old, and you are considered an adult. <br />
have you tried talking to them? <br />
because taking the time to talk to your parents might actually work. im about to be 17 and I have the most strictest parents ever and I never know what to do, i feel like i'm gonna go crazy at times too. but anyways I can't really tell you what to do but I think you should at least try to take the time to talk to them<br />
<br />

Try moving out as soon as possible if you can financially afford it. My parents were like this too, they even controlled when I came home,even when I was 20 something living at home. They called all the time and EVERY single time I went somewhere. (are you home? are you at the store? well, call me when you get home so we can know if you are safe). I had to lie sometimes so they wouldn't freak out. I told them I was at my apt. when I was at the gym late just so they wouldn't worry about me. It was stressful, very stressful and creates resentment towards them. <br />

All I can say is that I can relate to you. the other thing that made them settle down was getting married. They gradually quit doing this and quit calling or worrying about me. Just know that it will gradually get better...just hang in there!!
