Omg, thank you everyone!

Hello all! I'm James August. I'm twenty-six, trangender, autistic, as well as disabled. I'm here because I'm in a bit of a situation, and was finally urged to ask for some help.
About me: Aside from what I mentioned above, I have multiple chronic mental and physical disabilities. I recently got out of an abusive relationship that I was in for over a year, and have been homeless on and off for the last couple of months. I spent the entirety of August in four different hospitals, one domestic violence safe house (a hidden shelter), and on multiple couches. I was hospitalized for suicidality, which I have struggled with for most of my life, but hit a breaking point in August with the living situation I was stuck in. I'm asking for help with funds for the essentials. I have almost nothing as the result from having to get away suddenly, and moving around so many times in the past handful of months.
What I need: Most urgent are shelter, food and water, because my benefits are tied up in another state currently and I've been going hungry. I also need some personal toiletry items such as soap, shavers, and pads/tampons.
Any help is so, so appreciated! Truly, I mean it. It took a lot for me to gather the courage to ask, but I know I can't get anywhere without asking for help when I really need it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read, donate, and share this fundraiser. Be safe, and seek health!
