Lost my Partner

I lost my partner of 25 years 15 weeks ago on Tuesday.I still cry everyday find it so hard to talk to people about it when stopped in the street .I cannot sleep in our house anymore staying with my elderly mum on the floor.The memory of her last couple of hours haunt me not being able to help her.The look of terror in her eyes and pleading for help
