/I have never asked for your help/ is saying that a particular completed 
action did not occur. It does not consider whether the hypothetical 
action is still not occurring.

*not QaHlIj vItlhobpu' / not QaHlIj vItlhobta'*/I have never asked for 
your help./

*DaH QaHlIj vItlhobbe'*/I do not ask for your help now./
