Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
Your email below refers.
  Your situation is indeed sad. May Allah Ta’ala guide your son and open his eyes before it is too late.   You do not have a duty to support your son. On the contrary, he has a duty to support you even though you have the capacity to work. In terms of the Shariah, you should be staying at home, and he is supposed to be working to support both of you.  
And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
