Crying: I am so sorry for your loss. It is so difficult to lose ones mate. I suspect your tears are that way due to dehydration. You aren't taking very good care of yourself. You probably aren't eating and drinking well. Sounds like your grief is still overwhelming. You don't need to do this alone. May I suggest you speak with your doctor and ask him for help. Therapy, short term medications.
