Please help my aunt

This is copy/pasted from a facebook page about my (ex)Aunt and her family. Please read the letter and see below for my comments. Thank you.

“Hello friends. I’ve created a group because this means the world to me. My very best friend of 20 years Natahne, her husband Russell, their 7 year old daughter Yanna Dew and their sweet dog Bella have less than 30 days to move out of their lovely Petaluma home that they’ve lived in for years. How did this happen? Natahne’s dumb ass landlord hadn’t paid the mortgage for who knows how long. Now the bank’s got the house and Natahne can’t get any rent money OR deposit back since the asshole landlord spent it. They could sue, but aforementioned asshole has no money. They just found out on Oct. 2nd that they have to be out by Nov. 4th. Just like that.

Remember when my apartment burned down on September of 2004? A lot of you jumped in and assisted me in any way you could. Miss Natahne immediately rallied the troops and with Randy Maupin’s help, threw a fabulous benefit party at the Cat Club, which raised almost $3000. That got me a deposit and first month’s rent for an apartment (the one that I still live in), food, toiletries, and there was enough left over for me to get all my surviving clothes dry cleaned (everything had smoke damage). Between Natahne and The Lamplighters (who also provided cash and home/kitchen furnishings) I was able to land on my feet in record time with minimal trauma.

Now about Natahne and Russell: For years they fostered sickly babies and kids who were usually born drug addicted or with fetal alcohol syndrome, until they fell in love with Yanna (who’s got a heart condition) and adopter her. Natahne has home-schooled Yanna since the start. Natahne is also a doula and has helped women give birth naturally for years. She’s also an expert at homeopathic pre and post-natal care and practically anything natural.

That all said, I’m trying to do for her what she did for me. Since they can’t get their deposit back it will be extremely difficult for them to get another place, especially in month. And who knows what this did to their credit?! I myself am in a financial stranglehold, but I will help with any cash I can spare. I ask that you pay it forward in honor of anyone who’s helped you in the past. Most people I know are struggling right now, but anything, seriously anything you can spare will help this wonderfully giving family get out of a mess and into a new home.

Please send any donations (seriously $5, $10 or more or anything) to:

tore.com (my business Paypal account)

If you’re going to donate, time is of the essence as they have only 30 days in which to vacate. If you want to send me a check, please let me know privately. If you know Natahne, please pass along! PLEASE HELP MY BEST FRIEND!!!

Thank you.

Natahne was married to my uncle for years. She has since remarried and adopted an adorable daughter. She has always treated my family well and been there for me personally when i needed her. She is an amazingly strong woman who has had a run of bad luck. If you can help at all it would mean the world to me (and to her).
Anyone who donates and tells me will recieve a thank you gift in the mail (i will contact you for your address).
Please please please help out if you can.
Thank you.

Your Enneagram type is TWO - The Helper (aka "The Charmer").

"I must help others"

Helpers are warm, concerned, nurturing, and sensitive to other people's needs.

How to Get Along with Me
* Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.
* Share fun times with me.
* Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus on yours.
* Let me know that I am important and special to you.
* Be gentle if you decide to criticize me.

In Intimate Relationships
* Reassure me that I am interesting to you.
* Reassure me often that you love me.
* Tell me I'm attractive and that you're glad to be seen with me.

What I Like About Being a TWO
* being able to relate easily to people and to make friends
* knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better
* being generous, caring, and warm
* being sensitive to and perceptive about others' feelings
* being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor

What's Hard About Being a TWO
* not being able to say no
* having low self-esteem
* feeling drained from overdoing for others
* not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish
* criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should
* being upset that others don't tune in to me as much as I tume in to them
* working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings

TWOs as Children Often
* are very sensitive to disapproval and criticism
* try hard to please their parents by being helpful and understanding
* are outwardly compliant
* are popular or try to be popular with other children
* act coy, precocious, or dramatic in order to get attention
* are clowns and jokers (the more extroverted TWOs), or quiet and shy (the more introverted TWOs)

TWOs as Parents
* are good listeners, love their children unconditionally, and are warm and encouraging (or suffer guilt if they aren't)
* are often playful with their children
* wonder: "Am I doing it right?" "Am I giving enough?" "Have I caused irreparable damage?"
* can become fiercely protective


I am mildly in love with Ben Bailey also.

Hes just plain awesome.

Sorry boyfriend.

ho chit!

Mars ran away last night.

Well, we let him out and he didnt come back for more than 8 hours.

I went out to look for him in front of my house around 8.30p, at the corner of Laurel and Blackburn, and saw a pittbull and of course wanted to pet him. I leaned down to pet him with my back to the street and heard a huge crunch 2 or 3 feet behind me when an Astro van had run into a bicyclist.

The van hit the bike so hard it was facing the other direction and the guy was rolling around on the street. 911 was called and the old couple from the van kept poking at the kid. Luckily there were a bunch of people around, including a bunch of his friends (they live up the street).

However the people who hit the kid drove off. The cops came, the fire department came, the ambulance came, i waited around and waited and finally got talked to.

Luckily nate got the description and plate number of the van but shit.

I freaked out a little, not gunna lie.

Mars came back though.

Wisdom from my Mother

"Again, I love you every minute. It doesn’t matter if you “fall apart so much.” That’s part of you. Like eating too much at Thanksgiving, it’s going to happen. We have to try to protect ourselves from letting it happen. If we can’t then we just need to minimize the times it happens or the issue itself by protecting ourselves by wearing an elastic waistband."
