Maybe I could have gotten the same result with entirely fake cameras! A guilty mind works overtime. Yeah, it is a bummer to have to spend time documenting, but I agree with you, such things are hugely helpful if one needs them. My gardener is going to write a letter to me describing the cigarettes on my property, as he noticed them too. Today I wrote a second letter to the landlord, sent her a copy of the first which she claimed never to have received, and basically requested an immediate resolution. Not holding my breath on that one, but I needed to request it.
Yawny, yes there is great relief in having the installation! I thought I'd be sorry I got the more expensive HD cameras, but I'm actually glad. I love them. It gives me a feeling of control that is difficult to find when I am struggling with feeling off balance by others' unpredictable actions. You are sage in your advice to try to distance myself from it. It's hard because I feel like I constantly have to protect myself so it's always on my mind (i.e. recording on my cell phone every time I take the dog out, have to maintain myself in a certain state of mind all the time, on guard, don't respond whatever they do, etc. Pain in the butt!).
