My mom is very sick and driving me crazy. I rent and pay all the bills but she won't stop abusing me.

(((((((hugs))))) crushed. Can you tell us more about whether you are living with her, her medical condition, how she is abusing you, if she always has been abusive, but is worse now? Usually setting boundaries like walking away, or hanging up the phone can help to limit verbal abuse. We really need to know more about your situation to give you good feedback.
Crushed, please come back and tell us about what is going on with your mom.
Dear crushed,

I am sorry to hear how you feel. I know you are doing the very best you can for your mom. Thinking of you. Please know we are here to listen and give moral support.
