Thank you Kimberly. I must admit I was a little offended by that description of fibromyalgia, but didn't say anything. It is just one of the many misconceptions about this disease.
But, as of a year or so ago, I was one of those who misunderstood it so I can see why the member does not understand it. Unless your life is affected with it, it's almost impossible to understand.
Hugs to all, gentle hugs to Fibromyalgia sufferers.
I'm haveing troubles posting on this site!
Questions and more questions..
I could get dissability,colon cancer is considered terminal.. Is bone cancer?
I can't wrap my mind around any of this.
SM is still in jail no drugs. Wonder what kind of withdrawel she's going through? Could they tell her they'll give her drugs if she shows LE where the body is?
Eeep! Sorry about the spelling!
I love it when they "play" on the net. And you can bet LE does too considering they are watching every move they make.
If there's hink....there must be stink.
I have a theory:
Zahra was alive when they moved to Hickory. Soon after the move, EB began cooking meth at home. This is what the neighbors smelled that was so awful and that they had never smelled before. Zahra had to be kept locked up so that she wouldn't tell about the meth. Some time just a couple of days before she was reported missing, EB accidently killed her. Maybe she tried to get out, maybe she tried to call someone....in any event, EB killed her. She hid the death from AB until the morning of the mulch fire. When he started pestering to see Zahra, she wrote the ransom note. She realized that AB was going to find Zahra gone and needed an explanation.
If AB was in on the killing, what would have triggered the "discovery" of Zahra missing? AB could have just told anyone that he had sent her back to Australia. Only EB, working alone, needed to set up an abduction theory. EB may have had help disposing of the body. Her dealer/purchaser meth connection people may have been involved. If so, Zahra may never be found.
I wonder why it was reported that the landlord doesn't have a son.
Nothing new really but here are the articles out for 10/17
Support continues to grow as search resumes for Zahra Baker
Hickory Police search teams continued looking for clues in Zahra Baker's disappearance Saturday, but remained tight-lipped about the locations they're searching and why.
Maj. Clyde Deal of the Hickory Police Dept. would only say the locations were "places they had prior connections to" -- presumably speaking of the Baker family.
Meanwhile, support and attention for the case grew in the town Zahra Baker called home, as well as a much larger online community.

Case of missing Zahra Baker highlights DSS issues
Friends and family worried that 10-year-old Zahra Baker was in danger.
They saw bruises and a black eye. They questioned her parents. And they reported suspected abuse to the Department of Social Services.
Woman may have been last to see girl
Pat Adams worries she may have been one of the last people to see 10-year-old Zahra Baker alive.
A floor manager at a Hickory furniture store, Adams was working when Zahra came into the store on Sept. 25 with her stepmother and another woman, Adams said on Saturday.
"What made me notice her was she had a little hearing aid," she said. "She was a darling little girl. She had the cutest freckles."

I do not doubt that the condition is real and can be truly debilitating (sp?)
I was being cheeky, imagining that SM may be 'malingering' and two conditions seem to be so frequently used by people who do: Back problems and fybromyalgia.
I sincerely apologize for causing any offense!
Does anyone have a link to the article about the mobile home park residents witnessing EB and AB visiting the park late one night 3 weeks ago?
Funny that when you look at the charges all the worthless check charges were in May 2009
Wonder what was going on in May 2009 - do we know where they were living then? That would have been the place right before the "attic" apt. They moved into the "attic" apt in 7/09 and stayed until 11/09
Boy the other night when I said they lived on the fringes of society - that was stating it lightly no?

Thanks Violet - no worries!
Wait, - the residence right before the "attic" apt would that not have been the place with the landlord "Mims" - the one that has a suit against them for unpaid rent?
So hard to keep up with these people - they moved quick!!! I can't imagine moving around that much - I have way too much stuff!!!!!!
