Gosh, that really IS an over-controlling mother, treating you like you were 7, not 27. Is there ANY option of your moving from her home, to maybe share with a friend, to have your own place ? If you can afford a car, etc., can't you afford yout own place ? Maybe the friend could help babysit for you, and vice versa.
And meanwhile, you need to talk with her calmly but firmly, making it clear that this has to change, that you are an adult and need to be treated as one. Presumably you pay her something towards the expenses of the home ? That could both be saved for your own place, or withheld if she makes things unbearable for you. And remind her that if she takes your car, or anything else belonging to you, you can call the police and lay charges of theft.
Are there other senior members of the family you could discuss this with, who could talk to her ?
