Do they really spy on you?
I received an email from a member of the back pain support group (which I belong to) warning me to keep all the shades down in my house all the time because the SSA investigators spy on you and take pictures of you through the window to prove you are doing more than you say you are capable of doing. Is this true? Can they do this? I'm not doing anything more than my doctors report states, but come on now - how far is too far and at what point is it invasion of privacy. My god, I often walk around in tshirt and sleep shorts - are they taking pictures of that? Also - what about outside? Sometimes I sit on my deck (just sit - nothing else) when its sunny just to get some fresh air. Im bottled up in the house 24/7. Are they going to photograph me sitting outside and say that i'm entertaining myself? I cant work, but i'm not 100% bedbound 24/7. Not sure if the email was true - are they really checking like this and if so, how far can they go?
