Is it legal for my boss to bully me at work?

Question Details:

For the past couple of months my boss has been bullying me at work (ie: personal insults, threats, etc).  Its gotten to the point where it is affecting my overall health. She has insulted me in front of clients, talks bad about me to my peers at work, threatened me in the past that she will "push back" if I question her authority, and just today insulted my work appearance (I wear a suit and tie). She has also undermined my status at work. I have brought this to the attention of her boss but still the bullying continues. What can I do to alleviate this until I find a new job?
