Hi there, welcome to the community! We can definitely be a listening "ear" for you if you need to talk. It sounds like your son is not only unhelpful but actually harmful for you to be near. I'm not sure how easy it is to find them in your area, but you might want to check out social services in your area, because sometimes you can get someone to come in a couple times a week to help get groceries in, or at least rides to the doctor. Check with your public transit agencey too, if you have one nearby. Sometimes they can help.
