Please Help

I am in a desperate place. 
In summary: I need help, hope, and a miracle. I cannot afford basic needs, and am afraid I won’t be able to continue sustaining my positive mental health because I won’t be able to afford psychiatry, counseling, and medication, nor physical health, because my spine is degenerative and I need chiropractic/orthopedic care. 

In detail:
Three years ago, working 7 days a week relapsed my depression and I was sent back to the hospital. While resting and job searching, I pulled from a loan to pay for rent, bills, and expenses. As the years passed, I almost got it paid off until my roommate moved out and I had to shoulder $1200 monthly rent plus back-rent from the roommate until I was able to move out. This sent me back deep into the loan and it’s obscene interest rates. 
I am now finally in a good place mentally, but am afraid it won’t stay that way long. I pay $325 every two weeks as a loan payment. Due to a degenerative spine, I had no choice but to seek chiropractic care and have to pay $300 a month out of pocket since my $1500 deductible hasn’t been met. I make roughly $700 every two weeks. I can barely afford to buy my gas to work, let alone touch the $700 in collections from my hospital bill (which is why I cannot get a credit card to curb the loan). I owe my boyfriend several thousand because he generously helped me cover rent when I was scammed out of a sublease for my old apartment, he has also helped me with groceries that I cannot afford and I insist on paying back. I also owe an unnamed loved one $400 for similar reasons. I cannot even dream to pay them back for several months thanks to this new chiropractic expense, which is not fair to them.

Any donation is gratefully and tearfully received. I am not a proud person, but it sincerely pains me to reach out for help in this manner, for I far prefer to work for what I receive.  I am so willing to work another job,  I am not afraid of hard work, but I know my limits. I mentally and physically can not. 

These gifts and donations will be put towards good and responsible uses: firstly, to reduce this loan payment so I have wiggle room between payments. This wiggle room will help me buy groceries, clothing, shoes, and most importantly, pay back collections and loved ones.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and prayers.
