Tryin not to lose all that Ive worked so hard for

I am someone who hates asking anyone for help, but tries to help everyone I can. I worked so hard to have the little bit that I have right now. Took me 3 years to get what I have, and I'm extremely close to losing it all. When I was put out of work for 3 months due to covid, the bills didnt stop. Unemployment took forever to come, and by the time it did, I was in debt for a lot more than unemployment gave me. I have had literally the hardest year of my life. I tragically and very suddenly lost my best friend on Nov 30th 2019. This has caused extreme anxiety, depression, and what I strongly believe to be PTSD as well. I hate asking for help for anything. But im at a point where I dont know what else to do. On top of financial stress, and experiencing losing a man I wish I could change places with,  life keeps throwing me some serious speed bumps. I am trying so hard to keep pushing myself forward, but I am in way over my head. I was also in a hit and run accident on 9/19. I have been doing all I can to catch up on the debts I have accumulated since March. Literally robbing peter to pay paul. I am also trying to keep my mental health under control, but am failing terribly at this. Again, I absolutely hate asking for any help at all. I feel so pathetic at this point.  But if you can help donate anything at all, I would be more grateful than I can even say. 
I am also waiting for my certificate to come in the mail so I can finally get into my career that I have worked extensively to get into. Becoming a drug and alcohol counselor so that I can try to help others like I was helped by many people.  As pathetic as I feel even asking for help, I am running out of options. So for the sake of not losing the little I have that I worked so damn hard to get, I have to put my pride aside and at this point beg for help. 
For anyone who is able to help, thank you in advance. You are literally saving my life. Prayers are also grately appreciated.  Thank you for reading this. I appreciate every single one of you who have reached out with your kind words and thoughts.
