I honestly don't know what to suggest in this situation. Maybe it is worth sitting down with her and asking for some independence. 18 is when you are legally considered an adult here. So, at that point an 18 year old can leave home no problems. I would highly suggest getting a job before you do anything of the sort though.
Communication is key with any relationship though. I think you should talk to her about how you feel. Don't be disrespectful or rude, just let her know you want some independence, and maybe make a schedule with her to start.

So do you have a job? Can you support yourself?
Leaving home is expensive. Just because you don't get along with your Mother doesn't mean you should leave.

What is it your mother is out doing? Does she need your help in order to make the house run smoothly so she can work/grocery shop etc?
