“Wildly functional! highly highly recommend for people looking for a health tracker to understand their triggers better, build good habits, or have ADHD like me lol.” - Bonny
“I was pleasantly surprised! It's very customizable, even without premium, it completely covers almost everything I needed it to. Not to mention, as someone with ADHD, this is the only app I've ever had that works for me, highly recommend :)” - Jay
“I have ADHD and am using bearable to track symptoms and mood during medication titration. Can't recommend this app enough, from someone who has tried and failed to use so many different apps and systems to keep track of things over the years - this one just works!! Absolute best tracking app, thanks bearable!” - Lily
“Life management all in one. I can list out various tasks and simple tap if done. I have ADHD and recently got medicated so I can now track my self improvement measures. I measure all sorts like sleep, food (I write in calories), when I take medication or vitamins, what chores I did, etc. Also the list of things to tap at a glance can give me some ideas if what to do to fill time in the day, saves me thinking about it.” - Jason
“Bearable has made treatment for my newly diagnosed ADHD a lot easier. My psychiatrist loves it too!” - Gemma
“I have recently realised I have ADHD (diagnosis pending) and have found this app super helpful! I have the premium version and it has been so insightful to see how certain factors affect my symptoms! It helps with motivation to do / not do things when you have undeniable personal data proving the effect!” - Katie M
“As someone with multiple chronic illnesses and ADHD, it has always felt too overwhelming to keep track of symptoms or chart factors, and I've never been able to stick to any system in my life--not even medication tracking! I don't know what sorcery they've done here, but this app is easy-to-use and motivates me to log, knowing they'll look for the correlations and help me find ways to better manage my conditions. A++++” - Brianna

Created by people with chronic health conditions

James, founder & CEO

Having suffered with a chronic illness since 2018, I know all too well the frustration of coming out of an appointment with my doctor or therapist knowing that I hadn’t been able to give them a complete picture of my migraine symptoms.

Often these interactions lead to no diagnosis, a very tentative diagnosis, or at worst, a misdiagnosis. From personal experience, this sets you off a wild goose chase. You go from consultant to consultant in search of answers and spend hours on Dr. Google.

In the end, I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I started tracking my mood, symptoms and other daily factors, in the hope that it would help me to understand, and feel more in control of, my health. This is how the idea for the Bearable app was born. 

Since 2020, Bearable has helped me to better understand and manage my symptoms as well has help me to improve how I communicate with my medical team.

Today, my mission is to give all patients the power to take control of their health and feel like themselves again. That’s why we continue to work with hundreds of online communities to seek the advice and feedback of people with chronic health conditions.

What are the benefits of ADHD Symptom Tracking?

1. Improved Management and Treatment.

By tracking symptoms, you can spot patterns and triggers, identifying what affects your ADHD and how your symptoms change over time. This information can help you to fine-tune your medications and other treatments based on what works best for you.

2. Better Communication and Support.

By providing clear symptom severity and frequency data to your doctor, you can have more effective consultations. A clear illustration of your symptoms can also offer useful information to parents, teachers, and caregivers, enabling them to better support individuals with ADHD.

3. Increased Awareness and Motivation.

Tracking symptoms helps you gain a deeper understanding of your ADHD and its impact on your life. ADHD symptom tracking can also aid with setting and tracking goals to keep you motivated and consistent with your symptom management.

4. Identification of Additional Issues.

Symptom tracking can help you to spot other conditions like anxiety or depression that may need attention. By also tracking other health metrics, symptoms, and treatments – ADHD symptom tracking can help you to have a clearer view of everything impacting your well-being.

5. Contribution to Advocacy

Detailed records can support your case for necessary adjustments at work or school, enhancing your self-advocacy. Additionally, by being better equipped to understand, manage, and communicate about your ADHD, you can help others on their ADHD journey, contributing to community advocacy.

FAQ

Yes, Bearable is a freemium app and our subscription is optional.

With Bearable, you can track unlimited symptoms, treatments, medications, and triggers for free. You can also identify changes in your ADHD symptoms/traits using weekly reports, timelines, calendars, and charts – all included in the free version of the Bearable app.

Bearable was designed so that people whose disposable income is affected by their ADHD can still track and manage their health using the app for free. In fact, we’ve recently launched a sponsorship program that gifts free subscriptions to members of the Bearable community every month.

When you first sign-in to Bearable, you’ll be asked to pick the factors that you feel are most effecting your ADHD symptoms/traits. Then, over the course of the following week – and along with your symptom severity – you’ll track the days when these factors occur.

Once you’ve collected approximately 7 days of symptoms and factor data, we’ll show you correlations between your factors and changes in symptom severity.

Then, once you’ve collected more data – we recommend at least 30 days – you’ll be able to determine which factors might be negatively impacting your ADHD symptoms. At this point, most Bearable users then use this data to:

    1. Speak with a Doctor about any new triggers they’ve identified.
    2. Begin making lifestyle changes to avoid newly identified triggers.

It’s also possible to create more granular, custom factors and these can help you to get a more detailed understanding of your triggers. For example, rather than tracking ‘Socialised’ you might begin to track ‘Chad’, ‘Karen’, and ‘Mom’.

Ultimately, Bearable gives you the tools to collect data about your triggers, so that you can better understand and manage your symptoms over time.

Many members of the Bearable community have told us that their main aim is to simply track symptoms over time. The main reasons for this are:

    1. It makes it easier spot early warning signs for symptom flare ups.
    2. It helps to give them perspective on the frequency and severity of their symptoms.
    3. The act of logging symptoms gives them a sense of control.
    4. It helps them to stay accountable for managing their symptoms.
    5. It helps them to identify possible triggers and effective treatments

Yes, one of the primary reasons we created Bearable was to make communication with your Doctor, Therapist, and Medical team easier.

Whilst it’s possible to export all of your data in .csv format, we’ve also heard from members of the Bearable community that they:

    1. Use the share button on certain reports to send doctors a specific report e.g. to share correlations from the Effect on Fatigue report.
    2. Screen grab  reports that don’t currently have a share button e.g. to share symptom trends from the Comparison graph or Timeline screen.
    3. Simply use the app during an appointment to answer questions on the spot. For example, by using the Timeline & Calendar screens to quickly lookup symptom frequency and severity for specific dates.

There are a number of different ways to use Bearable and each of them can help you to manage your ADHD symptoms in different ways.

    1. By helping you to identify triggers, Bearable can help you to make lifestyle choices and changes to avoid or reduce exposure to these triggers.
    2. Bearable can help you to identify early warning signs of a symptom flare up, so that you’re able to adjust your plans before your symptoms become more severe.
    3. Bearable helps you to collect detailed symptom data for you to share with your medical team and this can aid with obtaining a diagnosis or treatment.
    4. By helping you to understand the positive and negative effects of treatments, self-management, and/or medications on your symptoms. Bearable can help you to make better decisions about how you manage your disease or condition.
    5. Bearable’s Reminders, Goals, and Other Factor features can help you to stay accountable for healthy habits, self-management, and medication adherence.

What we’ve been told by our community of thousands of people with multiple chronic illnesses and hard-to-diagnose-conditions, is that Bearable is better than other chronic illness symptom tracker apps because:

    1. The app is made by people with chronic conditions for people with chronic conditions. Bearable started as an idea on Reddit – by our founder and CEO who lives with chronic migraines – and was shaped by the feedback of chronic illness communities such as r/adhd r/chronicillness, r/fibromyalgia, r/endo, r/migraine, r/longcovid, r/anxiety, r/bipolar, r/bpd, r/ptsd and many more. Bearable is still recommended by these communities today and we continue to work with them for feedback on features and updates to the app.

    2. Bearable is more customisable than other chronic illness symptom tracker apps. Our approach has always been to let people dictate what and how they track their health and the factors impacting their health. Rather than taking a prescriptive approach, Bearable let’s you track and manage your health however you’d like.

    3. Bearable has a simple interface that makes tracking symptoms, treatments, and medication very quick, easy, and rewarding. Everything appears on a single screen that can be customised as much or as little as you’d like.

    4. Most of the features can be used for free and we don’t show ads or sell any data. If you read reviews of the Bearable App, you’ll notice that people often mention how much they were able to achieve for free. Our mission has always been and will always be to help as many people with chronic illnesses as possible and that’s why we do everything we can to protect user data and offer tools for free (we even offer free subscriptions through the Bearable Heroes program).

    5. Bearable is backed by scientific review, recommended by Doctors and Therapists including; Psychiatrist Dr. Anthony Levinson, GP Dr Claire Ashley, and also recommended by The US Pain Foundation, and a number of leading health publications including SELF Magazine, Healthline, and WebMD.
