+Well, pinkfairy, for a start, please don't do ANY of those self-damaging things --- they wouldn't help at all, and would only make things worse. And there's something even more awful about such ideas --- they would represe4nt you actually acting like your mom --- creating a health crisis to get attention. You're far better remaining like you, and not imitating the worst of the ways she behaves.
OK, your mother could be a real pain in the neck ( and maybe she HAS a pain in the neck, too ?) -- she sounds like a real hypochondriac, enjoying, inflating, and making the most out of any ailments or symptoms. Sounds like your dad is passive, and as though it is only by complaining of illness that your mom gets attention from him --- but if he's worried that she's sick HE should attend to her, rather than calling you and expecting you to drop your job and rush to her side.
Its not clear whether you still live with your parents, or not. If you are staying on your own, your position is much stronger --- you can put in an answering machine, and not respond to silly calls from them, and you can sit down and tell them that you have your own life to lead, your own work to do, and they must look after themselves.
If you still live with them, the same conversation could still be useful, and keep looking for opportunities to get out on your own, maybe sharing with someone else at first
