He had effectively cut me off from everyone.
True, I still had a phone—well two, the house phone and my cell—but when he blocked my Internet access I felt completely alone and cut off.
I felt under his control.
I looked on his computer, looking for a way to restart my account, but I wasn’t tech savvy enough to figure anything out.
But, after turning my computer on, mainly out of habit, I discovered something that showed me HE wasn’t so tech savvy either, nor as smart as he thought.
He had only blocked me from HIS computer!
