Prevent Eviction & Shut Off

I know I have asked this before of people but I need some help. I just got a call from National Grid telling me they are going to be cutting off my gas. I'm past due on my rent (because of some issues with Bank of America posting a payment backdated and then overdrafting my account) and then I'm also up for collection on my electric. I've made incriminate payments on all of these but it's not enough. They're going to cut off my gas and my roommate and I won't have hot water. Everything is mounting up on me.

I sound like a child here, believe me. I am not trying to come across as woe is me. I take full responsibility for this issue I'm facing but retail has been very slow, I'm having trouble making hours, and I'm having trouble with income. Is there any one of you who can help me? The gas company told me I need $78 by tomorrow to prevent disconnection and I owe $950 to my landlord by the first. I also owe $179 to my electric. I tried to setup a payment plan and it is not working.

I am willing to barter with you. I can do whatever you want and potentially sell my shit. I'm not asking for a complete handout. I just am a little overwhelmed here.

My friends paid for me to go to Pride so I didn't spend all this money during Pride. In fact, I didn't spend ANY money during Pride. I just had been making small payments on both my gas & electric and the lady on the phone told me I can't do that anymore. They need more.

I get it that June is a shitty month to ask these questions. I just truly need help.
