Hello @artemis

It seems like your grief is having a big impact on you and your relationship with your partner. From what you have said it may be that your partner does not know how to support you rather than not wanting to support you.
I wonder if your partner would be willing to go with you to see a relationship counsellor? At this stage he may be seeing the problem as only yours, so it would be important to frame the idea of counselling in a way that encourages him to want to be part of it. Maybe saying that you are concerned that the grief/feelings you have are also impacting on him and you want to talk with someone who can help you both.
If he is not willing to see a counsellor together than re-engaging yourself with a counselor again may be helpful.
